INTEGRA Announces ARABLAB Introductions

Zizers, Switzerland - February 20, 2012 - INTEGRA announces that it has chosen ARABLAB 2012 to display its latest innovations in media preparation and liquid handling.

At this important event INTEGRA will launch its new Turbo mode option for the MEDIAJET Automated Petri Dish Filling system. Media preparation labs can now benefit from the new Turbo mode option which significantly accelerates the filling rates of the MEDIAJET resulting in time-savings of more than 40%. With this option, the MEDIAJET is able to fill up to 1100 Petri dishes / hour or deep dishes with high volumes of media (up to 60ml / dish). Also on display will be INTEGRA latest range of MEDIACLAVE media preparation systems which enable labs to prepare high quality culture media reliably and efficiently.

Visitors to stand 722 will also be able to discuss a suite of new applications developed for the VIAFLO 96 - a 96-channel handheld electronic pipette that enables fast, precise and easy simultaneous transfer of 96 samples. The VIAFLO 96 has been designed to be used just like a standard handheld pipette. Therefore, no special skills or training are required to operate it. The highly intuitive Touch Wheel™ user interface enables simple and fast programming of a wide range of pipetting modes including repeat dispense, serial dilute and sample dilute. Users will also immediately benefit from the increased productivity delivered by their VIAFLO 96. Fast replication or reformatting of 96 and 384 well plates and high precision transferring of reagents, compounds and solutions to or from microplates is now as easy as pipetting with a standard electronic pipette into a single tube.

Proven in over two hundred thousand installations worldwide the PIPETBOY pipettor range sets a high benchmark for ease-of-use, reliability, build quality, performance and operational safety. Each PIPETBOY pipettor can be used with plastic or glass pipettes with volumes of 1-100 ml. Offering accurate high productivity parallel pipetting from 0.5µl to 1250µl - Voyager multi-channel pipettors are the perfect liquid handling tool for applications including sample reformatting, PCR Reaction set-up, ELISA sample transfers and Taqman Assay set-up. Using a proprietary motorised adjustable spacing mechanism - Voyager pipettors eliminate cross contamination and ensure consistent, accurate and extraordinary fast delivery of liquids.
