Liquid Handling System

The MANTIS automated liquid handler is the easy and affordable solution to quickly increase the reproducibility and quality of your research as well as throughput and efficiency of your laboratory. The diaphragm-based chip design is liquid class compatible, easily dispensing aqueous and organic solutions. Additionally, the MANTIS will dispense in any SBS template from 6 to 1536 well plates, and can be easily programmed to dispense to custom designs as needed.

More Than a Reagent Dispenser

While traditional hand-held pipettes, or larger automated liquid handlers greatly deteriorate in accuracy and precision below 2 µL volumes, the MANTIS® automated liquid handler prevails in Efficiency, Reproducibility and Versatility.

  Cell Culture and Bead-Based Assays


  • Efficient:  Miniaturize reactions, scale-up through-put, save on reagents and remove pipette tip cost.
  • Reproducible:   Dispense volumes down to 100nL at CV < 3%
  • Versatile:   Easily dispense and normalize reagents and cell culture assays

Enhance Laboratory Efficiency

Efficient research means that reagent dead volumes, tip consumption, and reaction volumes are minimized.  

The MANTIS liquid handler dispenses volumes from 100 nL to 100s of mL allowing researchers to commonly run 2-5 µL reaction volumes in genomics and screening workflows.

To minimize dead volume, reagents plug directly into the microfluidic chip. Dead volumes are further reduced to just 6 μL by using pipette tips as reagent reservoirs, making the Mantis ideal for dispensing even the most precious reagents.
