With the Autoclaveable Flip Dispenser the stir elements are added to wells of microplates before the liquid is added. These dispensers can be sterilized by autoclaving, heating in a hot air oven or by alcohol and flaming. These dispensers contain ordered depressions in an aluminum housing, which are large enough to accommodate just one stir element. Filling the dispenser and loading a microplate are accomplished with a simple flip of the dispenser with a microplate on top.
A key factor in loading the stir elements into the dispensers is that they must not be magnetic. If they are magnetic they will stick together and not fill the depressions. A simple pass over the VP 781 demagnetizer removes all residual magnetic fields.
An alternative use for our flip dispensers is to dispense solids/powders.
