I-DOT™

Noncontact liquid handling for everyone.

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.

liquid reagents volumes

Sustainable solutions to the life science industry

The I-DOT lowers your plastic waste and the risk of carryover seen with hand pipetting. Reduce your lab’s carbon footprint and enjoy huge savings on valuable reagents and samples.

Drop-on-demand Technology (I-DOT)

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.

Application Notes

Written by scientists for scientists, these papers highlight novel ways to optimize one’s research with the I-DOT Liquid Handler.

We introduce a miniaturized, highthroughput workflow in which single HEK293FT cells were sorted by the f.sight™ into 384-well PCR plates, then libraries were prepared with the I-DOT.

Features Designed for Your success

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

Noncontact

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

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

Speed

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

Low dead volume

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.
