New Products: BioTek's MultiFlo FX Microplate Dispenser

Premium

BioTek recently introduced its MultiFlo FX Microplate Dispenser. The instrument supports up to four independent reagent dispensers and a washer, and is intended to "simplify and automate" microplate-based liquid handling processes, the company said.

MultiFlo FX incorporates BioTek's parallel dispense technology, which allows users to choose between peristaltic or syringe-pump dispensing. Its wash module relies on BioTek's Dual-Action approach for independent aspirate-dispense control.

According to BioTek, MultiFlo FX can be used for cell-based assays, bead-based assays, and other technologies.
