INTEGRA’s VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipettes streamline the production of venom-based screening assays

Venomtech®, a UK biotech leader since 2010, utilizes natural venoms from over 200 species for drug discovery studies. The team employs INTEGRA’s VOYAGER pipette for efficient venom-based screening assay production.

“Our core product is our Targeted-Venom Discovery Array™ (T-VDA), which include venoms from 12 species selected according to the target of interest. Our production process starts in 96 well stock plates, so we need to transfer to 384 well array plates, and so the ability to electronically adjust the tip spacing one-handed was a major part of the decision to choose the VOYAGER. It stood out in side-by-side comparisons in terms of the sheer ability of the instrument, as well as the service and interactions with INTEGRA. Its precision, light weight and quiet motor-drive were definitely key features in our decision. The repeat dispensing function is really important for our workflow, as it means you are not going backwards and forwards to your reservoir each time – making the process much faster – while the serial dilution function is perfect for creating standards with different concentrations. We bought our VOYAGER at least seven years ago, and it has been a serious workhorse for us – not just in production, but also for our R&D and QC work,” concluded Steve.
