PlexPrep® workflow solution

The PlexPrep® provides a simple, benchtop automation solution that utilizes existing equipment and requires minimal training of staff.

  • Scalable throughput – easily adapt your workflow to meet demands caused by sudden surges
  • High pipetting accuracy and precision – reduce any manual errors
  • Simple touchscreen programming – easy-to-use protocols allows staff to press Start and walk away
  • Compatible with 96- & 384-well formats – capable of always meeting your testing needs
Air Displacement Technology

Air Displacement Technology

– No system liquid, pumps, tubing or priming required

– Utilising air-displacement pipetting operation

CO-RE Technology

CO-RE Technology

– Compression-induced O-Ring Expansion

– Force free tip pick up and ejection preventing tip deformities

Anti-Droplet Control

Anti-Droplet Control

– Controls pressure within the tip during transportation of liquid

– Adjusts pressure by performing small aspirations to keep fluid in the tip

Capacitive Liquid Level Detection

Capacitive Liquid Level Detection

– Capacitance sensors detect the liquid level

– Conductive CO-RE tips facilitate capacitance sensing
