General Liquid Handling

Serial Dilution

Hamilton Microlab STAR automated liquid handling workstations are ideal for carrying out the laborious task of serial dilutions.  Sample liquid can be transferred to and from tubes, vials, and microtiter plates.  Using a Step Template in Venus One, the user simply double clicks on the pipetting commands in the template and adjusts the desired parameters.  These include tip sequence (tip size and tip re-use), tip ejection after each dilution step, sample liquid pick-up sequence (1 to 8 wells), dilution liquid pick-up sequence, dispense sequence, dilution level, and sample volume.  The template automatically calculates the transfer volumes, liquid volumes, pre- and post volumes and mix volumes. The serial dilution method is then run by simply clicking the play button.
