I.DOT

Noncontact liquid handling for everyone.

Speed and control while minimizing cross contamination

Immediate Drop-on-demand Technology (I.DOT) is a patented approach for noncontact liquid handling tasks. The system uses eight individually controlled positive pressure channels to generate droplets from 8 to 50 nanoliters from a small hole at the bottom of each well. Each channel can generate up to 100 droplets per second giving control and speed to the users all while minimizing cross contamination.

IMPROVED EFFICIENCY ACROSS APPLICATIONS

Compound dispensing

Dispenses small molecules in aqueous solutions or dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO).

Assay development

Dispenses small molecules, nucleic acids, drugs, etc. in a multiplexed manner and in direct dilution steps. Ideal for designing individual experiments.

Genomics and proteomics

Leverages miniaturization, low-volume dispensing and low dead volume to efficiently dispense for NGS prep, PCR, extraction and clean-ups.

Cell dispensing

Reproducibly dispense anything from cells in suspension to organoids, while maintaining high cell viability.

Significant reduction of liquid reagents volumes

Featuring Immediate Drop-on-demand Technology (I.DOT), the I.DOT is a premier solution for noncontact liquid handling tasks. Optimizing your workflow to bring intuitive automation, precision and speed to every lab.

Features Designed for Your success

Well reservoir design ensures dead volume <1 µL to conserve valuable reagents and samples.

Noncontact

The technology enables droplets to be dispensed into the target plate below the source plate. I.DOT eliminates carryover and cross-contamination.

Supports multiple liquid classes

Dispenses multiple liquid classes on-demand including aqueous solutions, PCR buffer, DMSO (up to 100%) and glycerol (up to 50%) – and defines liquid class at the well level.

Speed

Dispense 10 nanoliters across a 96 well plate in 10 seconds and across a 384 well plate in 20 seconds.

Low dead volume

Automated liquid handling is key for routine single-cell library preparation as it reduces hands on time and operator bias. The I.DOT further optimizes your workflow enabling assay miniaturization.
