Increasing throughput with INTEGRA’s VIAFLO 96 channel pipette

June 10, 2019

According to a new press release, researchers at the University of North Texas (UNT) are using INTEGRA’s VIAFLO 96 electronic pipette to increase the throughput of their ELISA, Luminex and flow cytometry workflows, as well as to improve the reproducibility of their results.

The Applied Physiology Laboratory at UNT focuses on research in two key areas—physiologic and immunologic consequences of weight change and using nutritional countermeasures to maximize immune health after exercise—and performs analysis and testing for other research groups in related fields.

Professor Brian McFarlin explained, “We conduct a lot of multiplexed analysis of protein and RNA biomarkers, and this requires precise pipetting. For one study we were performing 50 flow cytometry preps per blood sample, and had over 2,000 samples, so we needed to reduce the amount of manual pipetting we were carrying out.”
