VIAFLO II Lightweight Electronic Pipettes

VIAFLO II electronic pipettes together with INTEGRA’s wide range of GripTips form a perfect pipetting system. GripTips snap into place with minimal tip loading effort, providing a secure connection. GripTips never fall off and are always perfectly aligned, resulting in superior accuracy and precision results.

The ultra lightweight, well balanced design of the VIAFLO II pipettes feature unsurpassed multichannel pipetting ergonomics, even during prolonged pipetting sessions. The color screen together with the easy to navigate touch wheel user interface promote ease of set up and operation. All VIAFLO II pipettes offer a choice of predefined pipetting modes covering typical applications as well as custom multi-step programs for specific tasks.

GripTips snap on

Do your pipette tips ever loosen, leak or fall off? This is a common issue in laboratories, caused by the use of universal pipette tips. Such tips require “hammering on” which stretches the shape of the pipette tip rim. The stretched pipette tip rim immediately starts moving back to its original shape, away from the tip cone. This can cause leaking, misaligned tips and even pipette tips that completely fall off the pipette!

This will never happen with any VIAFLO II electronic pipette / GripTip combination. Featuring a low attachment force and a low ejection force, GripTips effortlessly snap onto the tip fittings and are easily ejected. Also, GripTips feature a high lateral resistance once attached to the VIAFLO II pipettes. This means GripTips are always firmly attached and perfectly aligned, regardless of how many side well touch offs are performed. You no longer have to hammer your pipette tips on or worry about pipette tips falling off!

Versatile user interface

A color screen and proven touch wheel interface offer quick and comprehensive menu navigation. Simply by moving a finger over the touch wheel, menus and settings can be accessed. All menus are spelled out on the clear to read screen making memorizing abbreviations unnecessary.

A choice of ten predefined pipetting modes provides users with convenient solutions for the most common liquid handling tasks. Standard pipetting routines, such as repeat dispensing or serial dilutions can be executed with minimal set up time. For more elaborate pipetting routines, up to 40 personalized custom programs can be created and saved. Custom programs can contain up to 98 individual steps based upon the following basic operations: Aspirate, Dispense, Mix, Purge and Prompt.

Ergonomic design

The new VIAFLO II pipette offers perfect balance, an ultra lightweight design, unsurpassed operational comfort and is ideal for both left and right handed users. The effortless tip attachment and ejection forces add to the ergonomic benefits that accompany the use of VIAFLO II electronic pipettes.

VIAFLO ASSIST

Press the run button and watch the VIAFLO ASSIST pipette for you! The VIAFLO ASSIST is ideal for serial dilutions and reagent additions. Visit the INTEGRA website for more information.

A senior scientist at the UK organisation commented “Our lab is extremely satisfied with the decision we made to purchase and incorporate INTEGRA’s VIAFLO II multichannel pipettes and the VIAFLO ASSIST pipetting assistant into our daily work. We use the VIAFLO ASSIST for automated multichannel pipetting applications including serial dilutions for a variety of assays such as ELISA’s and proliferation assays. For assays in which repeat dispensing is needed, the ASSIST is also used for preparation of assay plates”. She added “Our lab also has a robotic system, but for lower number of plates the VIAFLO ASSIST is preferred because its set up is very quick”. The spokesperson concluded “Overall the consistency of assays has been improved due to the use of the new VIAFLO II pipettes and the automated pipetting capabilities of the VIAFLO ASSIST. Because VIAFLO ASSIST is easy to use, more people within our lab are integrating it into their daily work routines. The VIAFLO ASSIST has also helped us to improve efficiency, for example when we perform sandwich ELISAs. While one plate is being coated with antibody or buffer, another plate can be washed on a plate washer, so that these different tasks can be done in parallel".
