The multi-channel pod can accept the 96-channel, 200 µl dispense head, the 96-channel, 50 µl dispense
head, the 384-channel dispense head, and the high-density replicating tool in 96 or 384 formats. All of
these heads are installable by the user with a minimum amount of down time, and in any combination
between the two bridges. The multi-channel pods are equipped with integrated grippers to provide the
movement of labware on the deck of the Biomek NXP
The 96-channel and 384-channel heads utilize disposable tips for the ultimate in contamination-free transfers. A wash station with independent tip reservoirs is available for the repeated use of the same tips. The ability to track the liquid levels of all labware on the deck of Biomek FXP
reduces the carryover through minimal immersion of the tips in the labware utilized during the method.
The Span-8 pod has independent axis control including variable height, volume, liquid level sensing and liquid level tracking. The Span-8 pod can exist singularly with a single bridge system. In a dual bridge system, the configuration can include an additional multi-channel pod or 8-channel pod. The Span-8 pods can accommodate both disposable tips and fixed probes in full eight or four-by-four configurations. A Span-8 assists workflows focused around tube-based operations and where flexible access to wells in a plate is needed
