An improved qPCR pipetting experience

Integra Biosciences’ VIAFLO electronic pipettes are making qPCR plate preparation the straightforward process it should be for researchers in the Saint-Geniez laboratory at Harvard Medical School.

Preparation of quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) plates is a repetitive, time-consuming task when done manually, and having the right pipettes makes all the difference. Post-doctoral researcher Daisy Shu explained: “After graduating in optometry, I moved into research, studying cataracts for my PhD at the University of Sydney before taking up my present position in Boston, where I’m working on age-related macular degeneration.

“Harvard introduced me to VIAFLO electronic pipettes – a 125 µL eight-channel pipette plus a 12.5 µL single channel version – which dramatically improved my pipetting experience. A lot of our work is PCR-based and performed in 384-well plates, and the VIAFLO pipettes are real lifesavers.

“I use the eight-channel VIAFLO for most qPCR liquid transfers, and the single-channel pipette to add the primers. Once you've made your master mixes and programmed the pipette, it's really fast; it only takes me 20 minutes to do a complete 384-well plate. It's just so easy with the VIAFLO pipettes.”
