The pandemic has led to significant pressure on laboratories to scale up capacity for SARS-CoV-2 testing. INTEGRA's pipetting robots, electronic pipettes, as well as other instruments, have supported many laboratories in undertaking the challenge of enhancing the reproducibility of results while increasing testing volume.
VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipettes are suitable for the transition of patient samples in serological and PCR testing workflows from individual collection tubes to microplates. Automatic tip spacing adjustment enables synchronous and quick reformatting of up to twelve samples between different labware types. To further streamline a collection of repetitive pipetting operations, including tube to plate reformatting, the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot can be coupled with the VOYAGER pipette so that it's fully automated.
“INTEGRA's array of instruments have supported many laboratories during the pandemic.“
When adding samples or buffers to 384 or 96 wells in correspondence, the VIAFLO 96/384 handheld electronic pipette is a perfect choice for enhancing throughput and is excellent for a variety of standard methods, including silica-based vacuum extraction kits and protocols for magnetic bead purification.
INTEGRA's products are perfect for laboratories that have had to adapt their workflows to meet the urgent demands that the pandemic has brought with it.
