Divided Reagent Reservoirs
Save On Precious Samples And Expensive Reagents!
Large reagent dead volume is a serious issue in laboratories, especially when pipetting precious liquids into well plates using a multichannel pipette. Traditional reservoirs have a V-shaped bottom to minimize dead volumes. However, as the liquid level lowers, the liquid pulls apart and starts to pool. As a result one or several tips on a multichannel pipette may aspirate air. The remaining liquid in the reservoir and the pipette tips is then considered dead volume.
