The Mantis is a programmable, low volume, low dead-volume, non-contact liquid dispenser that can reliably dispense a variety of solutions including those containing beads, cells, proteins, enzymes, nucleic acids and highly concentrated salts.
Low Dead Volume – A pipette tip or tube from a reagent bottle inputs directly into the Mantis’ chip, minimizing dead volume to as little as 6 μL.
Clean – The Mantis’ fluid path is both disposable and washable.
Reliable – The Mantis dispenses using Formulatrix’s patented, positive displacement, non-contact, micro-diaphragm pump technology assuring minimal clogging.
Flexible – The Mantis dispenses into most SBS plates, up to 1536 wells. You can dispense up to six reagents automatically using the optional chip changer.
Chemical Compatibility – Mantis can dispense DMSO and other aggressive solvents using optional perfluoroelastomer chips.
