Enabling Miniaturization is Our Passion

Although reaction miniaturization is ubiquitous in large pharmaceutical environments, it can be challenging to understand the risks and considerations associated with generating high-quality data in the context of miniaturizing assays.  

The DISPENDIX team has worked through miniaturization of even the most complex NGS workflows, and can help you to scale volumes as low as 1/10th the manufacturers recommended SOP without compromising data quality.

FAQ

Our Most Common Questions

How do I know which steps of my process the I.DOT can automate?

The I.DOT can automate the process of dispensing up to 384 liquids into up to 1536-wells of a destination plate!  Since there is a lot of flexibility in the use of the platform, we often recommend the use of the I.DOT for steps where liquids are dispensed into 8 or more destination wells at volumes from 4 nL to 30 uL per well.

Is the I.DOT automation friendly?

Yes! Our customers integrate the I.DOT in varying degrees of complexity from simple integrations with an arm and a liquid handler to large robotic workcells capable of processing thousands of samples per day.

Can the I.DOT Dispense Glycerol, DMSO, and Aqueous Solutions?

The I.DOT can dispense liquids from 0.55 mPa*s (methanol) to 23.32 mPa*s (65% glycerol).  

How do I know that the I.DOT actually dispensed my liquid?

The I.DOT comes equipped with integrated droplet detection that counts the number of droplets dispensed in any given operation.  With this data, the I.DOT software will report to you the theoretical volume dispensed by taking the product of the average droplet size and number of droplets counted.
