INTEGRA offers a reagent reservoir system that pairs low-cost, stackable, crystal clear polystyrene or polypropylene reservoirs with clearly marked, graduated and reusable bases.
A wide range of reservoirs is available:
- 10-25 and 100 ml polystyrene and polypropylene (for chemical solutions)
- 10-25 and 100ml SureFlo™ polystyrene and polypropylene with the lowest dead volume on the market for your precious and expensive reagents.
- 25 ml divided reagent reservoirs, divided in a 5 and 10 ml compartment
- 12 well reagent reservoir to transfer up to 12 samples with a multichannel pipet, to perform a serial dilution in the reservoir to trasfer end dilute it further in a plate
SureFlo - Lowest dead volume
The large dead volume of reagents is a common problem in laboratories, especially when pipetting valuable liquids using a multichannel pipette. Traditional tanks have a V-shaped bottom to minimise dead volumes. When the liquid level drops, the liquid pulls apart. As a result, one or more tips on the multichannel pipette can suck in air. The remaining liquid in the reservoir and the pipette tips are then considered dead volume.
Opt for the latest generation of tanks, developed with a SureFlo anti-sealing matrix at the bottom and a unique surface treatment. In this way, the liquid flows evenly across the bottom of the reservoir and prevents pipette tips from sealing. This means that you can get to the bottom with your pipette without blocking the pipette tips, which results in fewer reagents and therefore saves on costs.
