The HAMILTON MagPip for Time Efficient Pipetting

 
The MagPip channels represent a unique, revolutionary technology to transfer liquids. In short, the plunger of the pipette is no longer driven by any mechanical coupling like a spindle or a belt. It is driven by a coil set, while the plunger itself acts as a permanent magnet. With this setup enormous acceleration and speed of the plunger is possible. This enables contact-free dispensing of small volumes with a novel dispense mode called 'WhiPip Dispense'. With the WhiPip dispense mode, pipetting is highly precise, down to volumes of 0.35μL. Although very similar, the liquid handling with MagPip channels is at some points very different from the liquid handling with the 1000 μL Pipetting Channel, because of the totally new hardware. Furthermore, the new WhiPip dispense mode works totally different than conventional pipetting. Therefore, a special training is available. 
     
   
In the HAMILTON’s MagPip Liquid Handling Training the participants acquire the competence to set up applications with the new channels. To achieve that, the participant learns everything about the new MagPip hardware, pipetting technology, MagPip Liquid Handling and the differences to the 1000μL Pipetting Channels. During the training, tools and features necessary for the procedure of optimizing liquid transfers down to 350nL will be presented. To improve the skills and competences, main part of the training are hands-on sessions. In these challenges, the participant practically applies the knowledge directly on the instrument.  
   
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.
