LabTec Automated Fluid Dispensing System Setup

The LabTec Advantage:

The LabTec is an easy to use one touch fluid dispensing system, dispensing by volume, weight or weight ratio. Once the dispense volume is set up, the user can press a button (or footswitch) to initiate the high precision, high accuracy dispense ranging from milliliters to liters. The one touch calibration feature ensures aliquot accuracy and precision. Ten user defined dispensing volumes can be stored in the LabTec, and automated repetitive filling can be achieved using the number of dispenses setting. When connected to an electronic balance the LabTec can dispense by weight or perform a weight ratio dispense.

When sold with Microsoft Excel based SciDoc software, documentation capabilities include such as time stamp, sample count, Dispense Volume/weight, Cumulative Volume, and Pressure (when connected to a SciPres sensor).

LabTec Automated Dispensing System

The LabTec Peristaltic Dispensing System automates the dispensing and diluting of samples. The LabTec has three different dispensing capabilities:

  1. Volumetric Dispensing: Programmable batch-volume dispensing, e.g. the LabTec dispenses 10.00 ml in three seconds with a typical precision of better than 1%. Easy to enter and change aliquot sizes.
  2. Weight Dispensing: The LabTec can be interfaced with an electronic balance for dispensing solutions by weight rather than by volume. Dispensing liquids by weight eliminates the need for pump calibrations while, at the same time, providing a level of accuracy and precision.
  3. Weight Ratio Dispensing: The LabTec can be connected to an electronic scale platform to automatically weigh and dilute samples. Example: for a sample weighing 11.0 grams, the LabTec will automatically dispense 99.0 grams of diluent if the user defined weight ratio is set at 9.00. The LabTec will take 15 seconds to weigh the sample and to dispense the diluent; the typical dispensing precision is better than 0.5%

LabTec Sample Preparation For Bacteriological Analysis

LabTec Automated Fluid Dispensing System SetupAutomated weighing and diluting of food samples can be readily implemented with SciLog's low cost LabTec dispenser. Only an approximate food sample size is needed. The SciLog LabTec dispenser calculates and rapidly dispenses the required diluent. LabTec dispenser increases the speed and increases the precision of the entire sample prep process by automating the weighing as well as the dilution process.

Real-Time Documentation

The SciDoc Documentation Package, used in conjunction with the LabTec, displays, calculates compiles, and documents 10 operating parameters; providing you with an instantaneous overview of your dispensing progress and status. This Excel based application also automatically populates graphs in real time. The LabTec gives you the information & control you need to optimize your dispensing for maximized accuracy.
