The key component for high performance microdispensing: the Autodrop Pipette

The Autodrop Pipette, first invented and brought to perfection by microdrop Technologies, is the key component inside the Autodrop Gantry II Liquid Handling Spotter for reaching the highest performance in microdispensing. The pipette´s body is made of borosilicate glass which results in the highest compatibility with almost every material you need to dispense. So, it’s not a special challenge creating structures of hydrogel, DNA or other cell-based solutions.

With its extra-long formed nozzle, it allows dipping up to 9.5 mm. The arrangement of the pipettes is designed to allow deep immersion into well plates without any problems.
The transparent housing of this unique pipette ensures that you can observe the liquid level in the glass capillary at any time. No more uncertain estimations, no more wasting precious samples. With this pipette, you have full control.

Therefore, the Autodrop Pipette is perfectly suited for the use in bioprinting or other life science applications like microarrays.

Broad range of diameters with several advantages

With its standard nozzle diameter ranging from 30 µm up to 70 µm and the possibility of customized diameters the pipette covers a wide area of resolutions and delivers the perfect match for your application. The option of a shorter dosing channel results in less sheer stress for sensitive materials like cells. In addition, the short dosing channel can prevent clogging as a result of sedimentation or agglomeration.

Contactless piezo based dispensing with a distance of just a few mm

With it’s piezo based dispensing the Autodrop Pipette delivers contactless and contamination free dispensing. You can just place the pipette tip in a distance of few millimeters and start with the printing of the desired structure.

Improving Cleanliness and Precision: The Pipette Washing Station

The pipette washing station is a fixed part in our Autodrop Gantry II Liquid Handling Spotter. It offers several advantages and plays a necessary role in ensuring precision, accuracy, and efficient laboratory operations.

Here are some of the major benefits:

1. Avoidance of Cross-Contamination

A pipette washing station enables thorough cleaning of pipette tips between dispensing steps, preventing cross-contamination of samples or solutions, especially when dosing different substances or reagents.
This ensures reliable and accurate dosing in repeated experiments.

2. Reduction of Contami­nation

Regular cleaning of pipette tips in the washing station removes potential contaminants or residues. This is particularly important when dispensing sensitive or reactive substances, where even minor impurities can lead to undesired reactions or misinterpretation of results.

3. Time and Resource Savings

The integration of a pipette washing station into the positioning system automates the cleaning process, saving valuable time and effort. Instead of manually cleaning pipette tips, they can simply be transferred in the washing station.
This increases the laboratory's efficiency, and valuable resources can be allocated to other important activities.

4. Extended Lifespan of Pipette Tips

Thoroughly cleaning pipette tips in the washing station helps preserve their performance and extends their lifespan. By removing residues or contaminants, accuracy and reproducibility of dosing are improved. This reduces the need for frequent tip replacement, thus lowering the costs associated with pipette tips.

5. Improved Result Quality

A clean pipette tip ensures precise dispensing and minimizes variability in results. Using a washing station helps achieving consistent and reliable outcomes, thereby enhancing the quality of research or analysis findings.

6. Compliance with Quality Standards

Quality standards and regulations are an essential aspect of laboratories. Integrating a pipette washing station assists in adhering to these standards by ensuring proper cleaning of pipette tips and minimizing potential sources of contamination or sample adulteration.

All in all, the integration of a pipette washing station in a dispensing system provides significant advantages in terms of precision, cleanliness, and operational efficiency in the laboratory.
By avoiding cross-contamination, reducing contamination, saving time and resources, extending the lifespan of pipette tips, improving result quality, and complying with quality standards, researchers can enhance the overall reliability and accuracy of their work.

A Configuration for every budget

The Autodrop Gantry II Liquid Handling Spotter delivers unseen potentials and limitless possibilities. To give you an idea of these possibilities we show you three examples for possible configurations for different budgets. All systems will be delivered with a laptop to run your system straight away.

Basic configuration:

The basic configuration consists of the positioning unit itself equipped with one pipette at a time. To make sure there is a droplet the observation camera unit is mounted and for the filling or emptying of the pipette there is the precision holding unit for microtiter plates with 96 or 384 wells. A second camera is mounted parallel to the pipette so the dispensing result can be monitored after the dispensing process. The second camera can also be used to aim a target/fiducial on the substrate to dispense at a specific area. To enhance the cleaning process of the pipette the washing station is integrated. These are the basic components to run the system.

Advanced configuration:

The advanced configuration consists of the same components as the basic configuration. The advanced configuration uses two pipettes at the same time. A second holding unit for the substrate is integrated which delivers the basement for an enhancement in the dispensing precision. To prevent cells inside the droplet from dying the cooling option is integrated.

Pro configuration:

The pro configuration starts with the positioning unit and 8 simultaneously usable pipettes. In addition to the components mentioned for the basic and the advanced configuration the substrate holder can be cooled and or heated. To improve the dispensing process a unit for ionization and to create a laminar flow inside of the system are integrated.
