HummingBird

HummingBird

DigiLab Hummingbird is a capillary-based liquid handling instrument for plate replication and reformatting. The Hummingbird is a multi-function benchtop instrument capable of fast, precise, non-contact transfer of compounds and reagents from master plates to daughter plates for cell or enzyme-based drug screening assays.

Key features

  • Fast – ideal for HTS (High Throughput Screening) applications
  • Minimize contamination risk with non-contact dispensing
  • Precise nanoliter dispensing using narrow bore glass capillaries
  • No sample wastage – capillary based system
  • Easy to use – minimal training required
