SWILE DISPENSING SOLUTIONS DISPENSING

Compound distribution into formulation screening plates is often still done manually and therefore binds highly qualified resources to very time-consuming, tedious, and error-prone tasks. Certainly, the SWILE technology is the first fully automated true one-to-one gravimetric “pick & decision dispense” of compounds from submg to mg. The scheme at the bottom of this page displays the simplified SWILE workflow including a precision “pick & decision dispense” step.  Chemspeed’s proprietary overhead gravimetric dispensing tool design in combination with a second analytical on-deck-balance is the backbone of this innovative technology.

DISPENSING CHARACTERISTICS

  • Revolutionary accuracy & precision due to decision dispensing.
  • Dispensing range from <100 μg to 100 mg with +/- 10 μg resolution.
  • No cross-contamination.
  • No dead volume.
  • Unattended operation.
  • Fully inert (glass).

 

Disposable glass tips are used in order to eliminate any risk of cross-contamination. These tips, called SWINS, are stored and automatically provided by a SWIN dispenser.

The SWINS are available in different sizes (diameter). Hence, a specific size can be selected  according to the desired target amount to be dispensed. Additionally, a tilt / shake rack is used which loosens up and tilts the powder prior to the pick-up.
