J.G. Finneran Associates has introduced 8 and 12 channel reservoir trough plates to help improve convenience and productivity in high-throughput laboratories. The troughs hold liquid reagents in precise rows that align with 8‑channel and 12‑channel pipettes allowing researchers to simultaneously aspirate or dispense fluids in all channels. The product helps high throughput laboratories improve productivity because researchers can improve their speed and precision performing serial dilutions or dispensing different reagents in up to 12 channels.
The 8 and 12 channel reservoir trough plates are constructed of high impact plastics for durable, long-term performance. The reservoir design incorporates a v-shaped bottom with a residual volume of 200 µL, reducing dead volume and minimizing waste. For benchtop stability, the trough plates fit snugly on top of the Finneran 96-well multi-tier microplate system. The 8‑channel plate has a total capacity of 56 mL, with a 1 mL to 7mL capacity per channel and is constructed of high impact polystyrene. The 12‑channel plate is made from polyethylene terephthalate and has a 36mL total capacity with a trough capacity of 1 mL to 3 mL. Researchers will rely on these handy tools for adding samples, standards, wash, rinses, or reagents in high throughput applications that involve use of multichannel pipettes.
