Brings intuitive automation, precision and speed to every lab in a smaller footprint for accurate results every time.

The I.DOT MINI comes equipped with DropDetection, providing users the ability to detect when users run out of source liquid.

DropDetection is a patented feature that detects and counts every droplet released during a single dispensing run. It’s a simple and powerful tool enabling droplet verification and protocol optimization.

This innovative solution, mounted under the source well of the I.DOT MINI features a miniaturized light barrier to detect changes in light intensity as drops pass the photoelectric barrier between the source well and the target plate.

After the dispensing run, DropDetection delivers color-coded results (green for a successful deposit and red for an error) that are conveniently stored in a file for easy access.

This lightweight liquid handler uses a single positive pressure channel to generate droplets as small as 8 nanoliters through a nozzle in the well and can produce up to 100 droplets per second.

Built-in droplet verification

I.DOT MINI‘s droplet detection has the capabil- ity to detect when users run out of source liquid and can verify total dispense value.

Eliminate carryover and cross contamination:

The technology enables droplets to be dispensed into the target plate below the source plate. I.DOT MINI eliminates carryover and cross-contamination.


Dispense 10 nanoliters across a 96-well plate in 10 seconds and across a 384-well plate in 20 seconds for 50nl.


Rapidly dispense into any SBS target plate, including 96-, 384- and 1536-well plates of a maximum height of 16 mm.

Low dead volume:

Well reservoir design ensures dead volume < 1 μl for H20.

Large dynamic range:

Dispenses 8 nl to 50 nl if a single source liquid at a time.
