PIRO® - your personal pipetting robot

Intuitive handling - multilingual software


DORNIER-LTF, a daughter company of the German manufacturer DORNIER with tenth of years of experience in building robotics equipment has taken care to provide a pipetting solution which has led to the recently released pipetting system, the PIRO®.

Built by experienced engineers, the PIRO® is providing a solid hardware solution with an outstanding performance and reliable results.

Easiness meets ...

... precision

The PIRO® provides high precision with low variability even when pipetting small volumes.

... reproducibility

Match unrevealed standardisation of your experiments. No more "Monday morning" or "Friday afternoon" pipetting results.

... versatility

Many tube or plate formats are supported and more can be added.

Features of the PIRO® include the import of PCR setups from databases, normalisation, cherry picking, serial dilutions, and multi-functional plate usage just to name a few and combined with a drag and drop programming the PIRO® results in a versatile and comfortable to use instrument.

... cost saving

No pipetting errors, less repeats, lower reaction volumes, and usage of clear non-conductive tips.

... documentation

All steps are recorded and documented automatically and available for downstream applications, import and export functions are established to be used for intelligent pipetting from database. Pre- and post-run reports are provided.


Special features

PIRO® is a space wonder

On a small 600 x 515 x 470 mm bench top workspace the PIRO® provides 16 deck positions (12 x SBS standard plate positions and 4 x tube rack positions). A vast amount of tube formats including 384-well plates to even up to 50 ml tubes can be handled by the PIRO® using a range of pipetting tips (50 μl, 200 μl, 1000 μl).

Safety first

Active pipetting control through "liquid level sensing" is completed by tip picking control and tip ejecting control. High sophisticated pipetting routines ensure liquid transfers without droplets. Deck-sterilisation through the option of an inbuilt UV-light provides upmost safety from any cross contamination.
