Hamilton Co.'s Z-Excursion Universal Sample (ZEUS) Pipetting Module is an automated, self-contained liquid handling module that integrates into instruments requiring onboard pipetting. The pipetting module uses Hamilton's air displacement pipetting technology and CO-RE (compressed O-ring expansion) tips.
The pipetting module features no carryover and cross-contamination as it uses CO-RE disposable tips for pipetting over a large volume range. It is also features intelligent pipetting as it is equipped with Qualitative Pipette Monitoring (QPM) for onboard pipetting, monitoring, tip presence sensor, and both capacitive and pressure liquid level detection.
ZEUS performs single sample transfers and multiple dispenses from 1 uL to 1 mL with high precision and accuracy. By tightly controlling the z-axis and monitoring the air pressure within the channel, the system provides process security including autodetection and response to clogs, insufficient sample conditions, or other phenomena that could impact performance.
