MINI 96

MINI 96 

96 Channel Portable Electronic Pipette

The most affordable 96 channel electronic pipette on the market – fits any budget and workspace, and ready to use straight out of the box.

The MINI 96 is the solution for laboratories that want to fill 96 and 384 well plates faster and more precisely than is possible using traditional handheld pipettes while keeping under budget. As the world’s most affordable 96 channel option on the market, it enables simultaneous whole plate pipetting – as well as partial plate filling – to ensure that your lab’s productivity skyrockets compared to 8 and 12 channel pipettes.

Its tiny size and portability allow the instrument to be easily moved for use anywhere in the lab, from the LAFC to small work spaces on any lab bench. The MINI 96 is also easy to use – simply turn it on and start pipetting.

How it works

MINI 96 transfers 96 samples in a single step, making filling these plates much faster and more reproducible. In addition, individual columns of a plate can be filled as well (8 samples, 16 samples, 24 samples…), replacing the need to use 8 channel pipettes entirely. Up to two positions for labware can be used at one time (eg. Reservoir and 96 well plate).

Key Features

Simple Handheld Operation

MINI 96 is a handheld 96 channel electronic pipette, made to increase the productivity and reproducibility of every lab filing 96 or 384 well plates. It is as simple to use as a single channel electronic pipette.  A servo motor assists all movements, resulting in effortless pipetting – just sit and start pipetting. Manual indexing from 96 to 384 format is a breeze with the flippable Base Stage.

Portable, tiny footprint

With a footprint about the size of a 96 well plate, the MINI 96 fits on any bench space in any lab. It’s extremely light weight and small, allowing everyone to grab and move it to exactly where it’s needed. In addition, its tiny size and portability make it the ideal instrument to use and move into and out of a Laminar Flow Cabinet.

GripTip Pipette Tips which never leak or fall off

INTEGRA has redesigned the connection between pipette tip and tip fitting to eliminate these issues. The unique GRIPTIP PIPETTE TIPS are comfortably loaded and ejected without any physical effort due to a power assisted mechanism activated by a push button. The loading procedure also guarantees that GripTips are not touched by the user and remain sterile.

Optionally fill partial plates or single columns

Filling partial plates, for example, half plates or a few columns, or performing serial dilutions is easily achieved using the optional Two Position Stage. This avoids excessive plate handling, streamlining protocols and giving you the flexibility to find the optimal set-up for you. Of course, it can also be used to load all 96 tips as well!

Designed for Prevention of RSI

No matter how light and well balanced a pipette is, prolonged pipetting tasks remain physically and mentally challenging. While some steps always need to be performed manually, many other steps can be automated. To prevent RSI caused by extensive repetitive motions, manual pipetting should be minimised. VIAFLO ASSIST lets you switch between the manual and automated pipetting tasks on the fly, relieving you of much of the pipetting burden.

Applications

Repeat Dispense

Filling multiple 96 or 384 well plates.

The MINI 96 has been developed to make filling 96 and 384 well plates easier and faster, whether you are filling from a reservoir or a well plate. Precisely filling each well in a plate at the same time and at a consistent speed improves reproducibility and accuracy, allowing a higher throughput of samples without compromising on quality. 

 

Mixing Mode

Ensure that mixed liquids are homogenous with the MINI 96.

The mixing mode on the MINI 96 ensures that dispensed liquids are homogenous in every well, even across multiple plates.

 

Plate to Plate Transfer

The MINI 96 duplicates plates, transfers from 96 to 384 wells and more.

The MINI 96 makes plate to plate transfers easy , whether for simple duplication or from 96 to 384 wells, with a choice of predefined pipetting protocols or custom options to exactly match your workflow.

 

Partial Plates and Serial Dilution

Partial plate filling and serial dilution with Two Position Stage.

Filling partial plates, for example, half plates or a few columns, or performing serial dilutions is easily achieved using the optional Two Position Stage . This avoids excessive plate handling, streamlining protocols and giving you the flexibility to find the optimal set-up for you.
