REVOLUTIONARY FUSION OF MANUAL AND AUTOMATED DISPENSING

CERTUS HANDY unlocks a new dimension of manual digital dispensing systems for unmatched accuracy, flexibility, ergonomics and economy in advanced dispensing applications.

CERTUS HANDY with its modular concept and components has been ergonomically designed to reduce RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury). Thanks to its guidance system and “AutoDispense” function you will achieve unparalleled manual dispensing accuracy and speed, starting from a minimum dispensing volume 200 nl.

The guidance system in combination with our CERTUS CONTROL PC software enables automatic reporting, hence allowing 100% monitoring and tracking of your dispensing volumes and target wells. It also creates dispensing reports and protocols, permits saving of dispensing methods, experiments and data as well as export and import of your data.

100% COMPATIBILITY BETWEEN CERTUS FLEX AND CERTUS HANDY

We have implemented identical dispensing technologies in both CERTUS HANDY and CERTUS FLEX liquid dispensers (i.e. SMLD micro valves, digital control unit, dispensing principles, CERTUS CONTROL PC software). Therefore we can guarantee comparable dispensing results. And with the CERTUS FLEX Automatic Liquid Dispenser dispensing methods, experiments and data are also made 100% compatible.

Both CERTUS HANDY and CERTUS FLEX use our intuitive and easy to program CERTUS CONTROL PC Software.

ACCURACY. SPEED. FLEXIBILITY. COMPARABILITY.

CERTUS HANDY gives you the immense flexibility to dispense fluids of low to high viscosity in individual, precise and highly accurate doses from nanoliters to milliliters.

CERTUS HANDY dispensers are also equipped for high speed manual dispensing. However, dispensing is also possible into a broad range of other plate formats, standard and custom, to meet your exact experimental requirements. And due to identical dispensing technologies between CERTUS HANDY and CERTUS FLEX (i.e. SMLD micro valves, digital control unit, dispensing principles and CERTUS CONTROL PC software) we can guarantee absolute comparability of your dispensing results.

UNIQUE MICRO VALVES FOR MORE DISPENSING OPERATIONS, WITH LESS DEAD VOLUMES

Over 500 million cycles without losing accuracy, that’s the performance of our GYGER micro valves. Our micro valves dispense larger substance units in one single shot, in contrast to many separate tiny drops.

So bottom line your number of effective valve movements is signi cantly reduced, giving you more total dispensing operations for your investment.

For the CERTUS HANDY this means:

Contactless digital dispensing technology
Virtually no consumables (tips, cartridges, etc.)
Highly reproducible dispensing volumes with very low variation

And in addition, cleaning and maintenance are simple and reduced to the absolute minimum.

FLEXIBLE FLUID UPTAKE OPTIONS THAT MEET YOUR EXACT NEEDS.

Fluid uptake can be provided to the micro valves either from bottles or falcon tubes or, when dispensing of smaller volumes or high value substances, from syringes with volumes from 3 to 10 ml which are connected to the dispensing pens directly by luer-lock.

CERTUS HANDY has been developed for contactless dispensing of a broad range of liquid substances (such as aqueous buffers, alcohols, DMSO, solvents, detergents, cells, DNA/RNAi, proteins or oils) and large molecules, this with a focus on greatest accuracy.

THE CERTUS CONTROL PC SOFTWARE: INTUITIVE AND EASY TO PROGRAM

CERTUS HANDY comes with an intuitive proprietary software, which enables you to program multiple dispensing regions on any well plate format, as well as perform calibration and verification on each individual micro valve. Furthermore it allows you to control and monitor both CERTUS HANDY and CERTUS FLEX Liquid dispensing systems (single and multiple units) and transfer methods and experiments between them. Thanks to the Windows based user interface it has a familiar look-and-feel and is so much easier to use. The software also permits automated detailed reporting of your dispensing experiments.

BROAD RANGE OF APPLICATION AREAS

Due to its unique flexibility, accuracy and economy the CERTUS HANDY can be used in a large number of laboratory application areas, such as:

Drug Discovery

HTS (High Throughput Screening)

Compound Management

Biochemical and Cell Based Assays
