The BioTek Precision 2000 96/384 Well Automated Pipetting System offers a completely configurable multi-station platform to hold the required pipette tips, reagent troughs, and
microplates (96- and 384-well) for fluid transfer. The platform is removable, allowing
for multi-user friendliness, easy cleaning, and setup of the instrument. The 8- or 12-channel
pipette arm moves up and down as well as side to side, while the platform moves front to back to
provide complete access to all locations on the work platform and complete configurability. The
pipette arm uses a proprietary technology to reliably pick up and seal any standard tip with
individual, free-floating barrels that compensate for tips out of position.
Precision Power™ PC software accompanies the Precision 2000 Automated Pipettor to provide
complete programming flexibility. In addition to the external PC software, the Precision 2000 has
a built-in microprocessor that can control all movements, which allows for program downloading.
Once downloaded, the PC can be disconnected and the pipetting programs can be run via a
keypad. The flexible onboard software, which provides complete programming for the most
complex fluid transfers, can store up to 80 programmed assays. For more complete automation
robotics, interfaces can be developed using ActiveX® software commands. The Precision 2000’s
small size, with a 15 x 21-inch footprint and a height of 16 inches, allows it to be used almost
anywhere including most biological safety cabinets or chemical fume hoods.
