and Single Channel air displacement pipettors, with disposable tips, that operate simultaneously for high throughput processing. The 8 or Single Channel can also come with

fixed tips and liquid displacement pumps, either annular gear or ptfe valved syringe pumps, for filling operations from remote reservoir(s). The 8 plate rotating table is mounted

on an orbital vortexor (optional) for mixing in between serial dilutions. 96 channel pipettor can pipette into quadrants for 384 well plates with assist of vortexor.
