Everything you need to know about Liquid Handling Robots and Liquid Handling Components can be found here.
Today’s laboratories require flexible and fast compact robotic workstations to efficiently automate assays and sample preparation.  HAMILTON’s   pipetting   platforms   deliver   this   performance   by  combining  highly  scalable  platforms, wide   range  of  applications, easy to use software, modular accessories and leading pipetting technology.
The automated liquid handling development over 50 years results in a system that is highly adaptable for pipetting different liquids, from highly viscous substances such as honey to volatile substances such as methanol, and achieve high pipetting precision combined with speed. 

With the appropriate settings of the software and the HAMILTON technology, high accuracy and precision from sub-microliter volumes to 5mL can be reached. This whole process is called liquid handling, the main function of the HAMILTON pipetting platforms. 


Advanced Training

HAMILTON’s Advanced Liquid Handling Training transmits the ability to optimize and troubleshoot liquid transfers. Determine why something does not work as expected and solve the problem. Furthermore, the participant gains insights into delicate and challenging work with low volumes, multi dispense and into the intriguingly world of pressure curves and applications to monitor liquid handling transfers. The transmitted content is on the basis of  ISO/FDIS 23783 for Automated Liquid Handling Systems.

We are inviting you to attend one of our Trainings in Bonaduz and Gräfelfing (see training dates below). The course is addressed to people with active use of an HAMILTON Liquid Handling System. Basic knowledge of Liquid Handling is a prerequisite for this course. It is recommended that participants have already experience with automated Liquid Handling.

The following topics are covered: 
  • Short repetition of basic Liquid Handling topics as for example properties of liquids, pipetting technology and Liquid Handling parameters 
  • Introduction to Hamilton Pipetting Excellence Program
  • Basic Labware Definition: Creating and adjusting Labware (Labware Editor VENUS Four)
  • How to handle volatile liquids (including ADC (Anti Droplet Control))
  • Creation of Liquid classes and how to verify Liquid Classes (using HAMILTON Liquid Verification Kit) 
  • Monitoring Feature:  
    • Interpretation of Pressure Curves 
    • TADM (Total Aspiration and Dispense Monitoring) 
    • MAD (Monitored Air Displacement) 
  • How to handle low volumes
  • How to improve multidispensing (aliquoting)
  • How to handle mixing, shaking and Side Touch with Liquid Handling systems 
  • Different hands-on sessions on our Liquid Handling systems 
  • Basic training in VENUS or Instinct V 
  • Experience with the Hamilton Liquid Handling systems (take your time after a Basic Training course, in order to practice and deepen your basic knowledge before attending an Advanced Training course) 
  • Adequate language skills in English or German (depending on the training specification) 
    • Please note that the training material is only provided in English 
For anyone who works directly with one of our Liquid Handling systems who wants to refine his knowledge of Liquid Handling and improve the liquid transfer in their workflows as well as the dealing of Liquid Handling errors.
Note that you need to prepare and pay your travel and stay. Hamilton is covering the costs for lunch, snacks and drinks. Check your Training Account for further information after enrollment for a training course. 
Training confirmation (Letter of Attendance) upon successful completion of a training course.
Our Comprehensive Liquid Handling Training transmits the increased knowledge needed to successfully handle complex Liquid Handling tasks and errors. The training content presented will help you to increase the efficiency and the process precision of your automation projects. Comprehensive practical exercises on our systems including tips and tricks accompanies the training and helps you to understand the theory and how to use it practically.
Presentation slides are written in English. This is true for all courses that are given in English or German. If the course language is specified as 'German, English', the course language is German, otherwise English. However, all the provided material is written in English.

The content of the Advanced Liquid Handling training in Birmingham are compressed.
