PIRO® - How it started
Already in its start-up phase, LabHelp Robotics has entered into a partnership with the German company DORNIER-LTS, producer of the PIRO® pipetting robot, which turned out to be a perfect match and resulted in a fruitful distributorship. After the liquidation of DORNIER-LTS in June 2018, LabHelp Robotics became the (designated) partner for PIRO® services worldwide.
PIRO® - How it continues
With a wealth of PIRO® knowledge and expertise, LabHelp Robotics is now responsible for distribution and quality management of the PIRO® robotic tips, maintenance and calibration of the pipetting heads and PIRO systems. Furthermore LabHelp Robotics has access to PIRO® parts and accessories.
The most recent addition to the PIRO® services is the possibility to rent a PIRO® pipetting robot from LabHelp Robotics! Rental is only available in the Netherlands and Belgium.
The PIRO® Liquid Handling System from DORNIER-LTS offers a versatile and flexible pipetting platform. With its reliability, precision, accuracy and reproducibility, PIRO sets a new standard in the molecular laboratory.
PIRO® has been developed as an open system which makes the robot extremely suitable for integration into an automated workflow.
Despite its narrow footprint, a surface of four A4 pages, up to 16 positions can be used for various racks and holders.
PIRO® can work with a wide variety of racks, plates and tubes up to a tube depth of 100 mm. Deep-well plates (including the MP96 input plate), reservoirs and blocks for passive cooling, but also unusual accessories for various real-time PCR platforms such as ABI7500, Quantstudio 5/6, Rotor-Gene, SmartCycler, Eco, LightCycler are among the opportunities.
The PIRO® specializes in Real-Time PCR setup but can also be used for other tasks such as:
- Serial dilutions
- Rearranging plate formats
- Cherry picking of different plates and types of material
- Plate duplications
- Creating different mixes for the same run
- Automatic calculation of mix quantities
