384-Probe Head


The Hamilton MICROLAB® STAR expands the high throughput of multichannel liquid handling with an optional 384 channel pipetting head.  Serial dilution, plate reformatting and reagent dispensing can be accomplished at four times the speed of a 96 channel head.

The highly configurable and flexible Hamilton MICROLAB® STAR supports multiple arms, each with a multichannel pipetting head.  Imagine the throughput and flexibility that can be achieved with both the 384 and 96 probe heads on a single workstation with the highest on-deck plate density in the industry.  With Hamilton's unique 4to1 adapters ("Rocket-tips") the 384 probe head can be turned into a 96 probe head on-the-fly.

The high precision 384 probe head is adaptable to a wide range of labware including both 384 well and 1536 well microtiter plates.

The 384 probe head incorporates two positions for conductive liquid level detection for dynamic vertical positioning and optimum tip position relative to the liquid level.

The 384 probe head pipettes volumes in the ranging of 0.5 – 50μL.  It excels in pipetting accuracy.  With the 300µl Rocket-tips (4to1 adapters), the pipetting range increases up to 300µl.

The 384 probe head can also jet dispense down to 1μL with touch off for applications requiring low-volume dispensing into dry microtiter plates. Click here to view 384 Tip Support

The Microlab 384-probe head can pick up invididual tips, as well as individual rows or columns of tips.  This allows the flexiblity to conveniently perform serial dilutions in 384 and 1536 plates without the need of an additional pipetting head with individual channels.
