24 Pin Replicators


VP 224S5


VP 224S5
Multi-Blot replicators have 24 stainless steel pins with 5 ul slots in an anodized aluminum base. Compatible with many 24 well microplates (Falcon #353935,  and Corning Costar (3337, 3524, 3526, 3527, 3473).  The pins transfer ~8 ul liquid to liquid, and ~5 ul liquid to membrane (slot volume). Pin diameter = 1.58mm, pin length = 45mm, center to center spacing = 19.3 mm.

Check the center to center spacing on your plate very carefully as this varies between manufacturers.  Also the location of the matrix (A1 microplate well) varies between manufacturers. 


If you are transferring DNA, cDNA or other materials in hydrophobic solutions you will find that by using our new V&P Pin Cleaning Solution you will greatly increase the precision of delivery.  For an explanation see the FAQ page and the V&P Pin Cleaning Solution page.


The VP 224S5 can also be used with the VP 381A Library Copier to register the pins to the center of the wells.


These Replicators can also be assembled with other slot volumes and in different lengths using our standard pins.  If your applications requires a different volume or length just let us know.
