From in vitro diagnostics to pharmaceuticals, many biomedical and life science applications depend on precise, repeatable liquid handling. Oftentimes, these processes involve dispensing nanoliter-scale fluid volumes into hundreds of microplates—some of which contain up to 1,536 wells each. Under these conditions, manual pipetting is imprecise at best and unachievable in high-throughput applications. And while automated liquid handling robots overcome this challenge, they often include unnecessary features and often come with a hefty price tag.

Fortunately, you have another option. Pressure-controlled liquid dispensing systems provide a simple, quick and cost-effective way to dose nanoliter- to milliliter-scale volumes of fluid with precision, reliability and scalability. In this white paper, we’ll explore the basics of designing a pressurized dispensing system— including how to manage flow, pressure and other control variables to optimize your throughput in these critical applications.
