Thermo Matrix Hydra II

Thermo Scientific™ Matrix Hydra II is a syringe, fixed tip-based benchtop automated liquid handler.
A choice of 96-format volume range syringe dispense heads allows this syringe-based liquid handling system to be used with any 96- or 384 format microplate, deep well, or tube rack with a microplate footprint. Stepper motor technology enables precise movement of syringes as well as X/Y movement of microplates.
This small, bench top 96-channel liquid handler is capable of automating pipetting tasks, including low volume and viscous sample transfers, with the single press of a button. The Matrix Hydra II utilizes syringe-based technology to accurately and precisely dispense even the most sensitive solutions.

Benefits
  • Syringe-based automatic pipetting enables dispensing down to 100nL and maximum syringe fill of 1000µL
