Liquid handling with modular dosing system

Reliability, precision and compact dimensions are key when handling liquids in laboratories. Festo offers all of this. Our dispense head consists of a manifold duct plate, dosing valves and nozzles and can be perfectly adapted to your specific requirements. Combining this with our handling system creates a ready-to-install complete solution which simplifies engineering and increases productivity.

Reliable outcomes and precise results

We work closely with you to develop reliable diagnostic devices for your laboratory processes. Our products have been tried and tested in the medical/clinical environment and we have the expertise to develop products for your specific requirements.

What’s stopping you from bringing your ideas to the market? Design? Production? FDA approval? We know the challenges you face and have extensive experience in medical technology, which enables us to offer solutions that are cost-effective, reliable and ready to install.

We build on our comprehensive foundation of fluid and mechatronic products with a design, development and production team that turns ideas in reliable and robust products so that you can get your solutions on the market more quickly.

High-precision dosing and positioning

Single or multiple-channel dispense heads dispense different media with different pressure levels. During extraction, the vacuum and the position of the aspiration needles are precisely controlled.

Dispense head VTOI

Thanks to the 9 mm grid dimension and one valve for eight outputs, the VTOI is an extremely precise eight-channel dispense head for microwell plates. The VTOI enables liquids to be dispensed and aspirated in the smallest µl range.

  • Minimum dispensing volume of 1 µl
  • Dispensing precision CV ≤3 % (intra-run) and ≤5 % (tip-to-tip)
  • Also for aggressive media
  • Perfect for pressure-controlled dispensing systems
