PlatR – Smart Pipetting Assistant
Pipetting Mistakes are Finally a Thing of the Past
Pipetting mistakes cost more than you would have thought! Discarding two microtiter plates already amount to the price of PlatR.
By illuminating appropriate wells on your plate, PlatR saves valuable time and allows you to pipette faster. Using PlatR, your throughput can be increased up to 50%.
PlatR enables effortless pipetting and consequently helps you stay relaxed and concentrated after pipetting.
PlatR is suitable for ELISA, PCR, real-time PCR, cell culture and other methods that involve 96- and 384-well plates or strips.
Pipetting with PlatR
Create a Pipetting Plan
Create your personal plan using PlatR or upload it from your computer. With PlatR, you can create up to 10 layers of reagents and samples.
Position Your Plate
Attach the holder and put your microplate on. PlatR supports all standard 96- and 384-well plates and strips.
PlatR will illuminate the wells according to your pipetting plan and guide you through the wells. All actions are logged and traceable.
PlatR in the Lab
PlatR’s purpose is to help lab personnel to increase their throughput, minimize errors and produce reliable results.
The investment in PlatR pays off quickly. If one person is pipetting one 384-well plate per week, the coste of PlatR is compensated within 5 months. If one person is pipetting one 96-well plate per week, the cost of PlatR is compensated within 8 months.
“The use of PlatR enabled faster and more accurate pipetting which effectively reduced pipetting time and error rate by approximately 30% and 90% (15 full 384 well qPCR plates were done for this experiment). In addition, pipetting with the aid of PlatR is less tiresome and tedious in comparison to the classical “drop in a well” technique.”
“Our lab does a large number of ELISA’s on a weekly basis, therefore it is critical that the experiments be well organized to minimize mistakes. The PlatR system is well designed, user friendly and allows lab members to quickly and efficiently pipet their samples and reagents while reducing chances for errors. I can highly recommend the PlatR system to anyone for this application.”
“We tested PlatR during our everyday routine at the Laboratory of Molecular Virology. I can say that in general, PlatR is a very useful lab device, using it is easy and it is flexible enough for different pipetting techniques. I think that the foot switch for hands-free operation is also very handy.”
PlatR Software Comes with Samsung Galaxy Tab
Suitable for Lab
This particular tablet computer is handy and extremely resilient. Its size is suitable for lab use and its touch screen is made from high quality Gorilla glass.
PlatR can be easily decontaminated in the lab using a soft-cloth or lint-free tissue dipped in distilled water, simple soap solution, ethanol, DNA/RNAse remover.
The screen does not heat up and does not cause evaporation of samples/reagents. UV light does not affect PlatR's functions.
