INTEGRA Biosciences’ range of liquid handling tools provides scientists worldwide with the solutions they need for their PCR workflows.
The company offers a range of options for manual, electronic or fully automatic pipetting and volumes between 0.2 µl and 5000 µl. Combined with INTEGRA’s unique GripTip system, which ensures that pipette tips never leak or fall off, the company is redefining how laboratories approach lengthy PCR workflows.
PCR was well established as a diagnostic tool prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, but these unprecedented times are putting new pressure on many laboratories. The combination of constantly growing workloads and the need for fast turnaround times make the latest liquid handling technologies – such as that from INTEGRA – critical to meeting this increased demand. Options like the company’s VIAFLO electronic multichannel pipettes help meet the challenges of combining accurate results with high throughput.
While VOYAGER pipettes with adjustable tip spacing – with their electronic one-hand tip spacing function – address the common problem of transferring liquids between different labware formats such as PCR plates and tubes. This simplifies the tedious PCR set-up, reduces the likelihood of human error, and even overcomes the ergonomic hazards of repetitive pipetting.
For the high throughput PCR setup, INTEGRA offers a range of options for different laboratory sizes and budgets. For example, the electronic pipettes VIAFLO 96, VIAFLO 384 and MINI 96 can be used to reduce pipetting steps while increasing productivity and reproducibility. Alternatively, the company’s ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot can be combined with the entire range of VOYAGER and VIAFLO multichannel electronic pipettes to automate and streamline work processes, save time and significantly increase productivity.

With the ASSIST PLUS, users can optimize the settings – including tip immersion depth, pipetting speeds and angles – to achieve reproducible and precise results. This ensures efficient handling of valuable and expensive PCR master mixes that are used for patient tests, while at the same time reducing manual activities and relieving laboratory staff during this critical time.
