Dispensing systems: automated sample handling

Liquid handling with modular dispensing system

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

High-precision dispensing and positioning

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

VODA media separated air solenoid valves

  • Nominal widths (flanged connection): 0.4 ... 1.0 mm
  • Nominal widths (threaded connection): 2.0 ... 6.0 mm
  • Ideal for dispensing small fluid volumes
  • Optimal for switching cleaning fluids and rinsing processes, for example

Proportional pressure regulating valve terminal VEMA

  • 8-channel pressure regulator
  • Output range: -0.5 … +0.5 bar
  • with digital CAN bus interface

The right handling system paves the way for a complete functional unit

We develop ready-to-install complete solutions with dispensing systems and matching kinematics in line with your requirements – for dispensing and pipetting fluids, e.g. for dilutions, adding nutrient solutions and for dispensing reagents into microwell plates.
