Reagent dispenser streamlines nucleic acid purification workflows

INTEGRA Biosciences’ VIAFILL reagent dispenser complements magnetic particle processors such as ThermoFisher’s KingFisher system, streamlining workflows for extraction and purification of nucleic acids.

The VIAFILL can quickly and efficiently prepare purification plates for a variety of workflows, offering the ability to dispense a large range of volumes using the same set up; full labware flexibility, from six- to 1536-well plates, including deep well and PCR plates; easy-to-use touchscreen and simple programming; small footprint to fit into any laboratory; and direct dispensing from manufacturers' bottles, minimising liquid transfers and contamination risk.

The VIAFILL enables rapid reagent preparation for automated extraction, and supports optimised dispensing of various solutions, such as viscous wash buffers and beads, or volatile liquids like ethanol. The system offers fast and simple plate preparation for a number of different formats – including 24- or 96-well deep-well plates used by the KingFisher systems – dispensing defined volumes of buffers or solutions for the various steps of nucleic acid extraction.

For high-throughput applications, the VIAFILL’s optional plate stacker can simplify preparation of numerous reagent plates ready for extraction on the KingFisher system, further streamlining the workflow without compromising the reproducibility of dispensing.
