BD Biosciences BD Pin Tool

Premium

BD Biosciences has launched the BD Pin Tool as part of its discovery labware offerings. BD said that the product offers the reusable dispensing performance of a pin tool with the programming convenience of standard pipette tips. The Pin Tool fastens to any 96- or 384-well fluid handler, like a standard set of pipette tips. The company said the tool allows researchers to transfer microliter and nanoliter quantities “on the fly,” without requiring an intermediate dilution step.
