Compressed O-Ring Expansion: CO-RE

Compressed O-Ring Expansion: CO-RE

Many of today's applications require precision in tip attachment and positioning. In order to ensure such precision, HAMILTON uses quality engineered components and the CORE tip attachment technology. The CO-RE system attaches disposable tips or steel washable needles to the pipetting channels with a stable lock-and-key fit. This enables a precision of ±0.1mm on all axes. The system requires no vertical force for tip attachment or tip ejection, thus eliminating mechanical stress and improving the overall system reliability along with pipetting speed and dexterity. Furthermore the pipetting channels can:

• Make use of disposable tips and washable tips within the same run

• Pick up a gripper and other tools

• Eliminate aerosol production upon tip ejection
