Fit X1 Automated Pipetting (Liquid Handling) System
The Fit X1 is a high precision, automated pipettor system designed for low-volume PCR/qPCR sample preparation.
Fit X1 is designed to replace the manual process of PCR/qPCR sample preparation. If you are in the market for a liquid handling robot, you know that precision and consistency are the key features to ensure reagents are dispensed accurately. Fit X1 offers simplicity and functionality for you to produce the best results...and at an affordable price!
The Fit X1™ software is simple to install and easy to use, a trained technician (available, of course!) is not required to start using the instrument. How is the possible? Fit X1 software contains built-in PCR/qPCR setup protocols. Protocols can be transferred via USB memory stick.
Another unique feature is 1 and 8-channel, 50ul or 200ul, Automatic Pipetting Modules (APMs) can be exchanged without tools! Fit X1 also contains four interchangeable standard mictrotiter plate/tip rack adapters and two interchangeable reagent vessel adapters.
Affordability and Compatibility
The Fit X1 is a fantastic value for the lab. It has, as standard, features that other competitive systems offer as options and is offered at a price that although we cannot post here, will certainly please you. In other words, the Fit X1 will fit your needs and budget.
FitTip™ robotic tips are compatible with Beckmen's® Biomek 3000® system and The Fiter™ adapters keep sensitive reagents/samples at 7° C for more than 30 minutes.
The Automated Pipetting Module (APM) can be mailed in for service and calibration and the Fit X1 software can be upgraded via the internet. The instrument is also compact and portable.
Accuracy and Precision
Each Automated Pipetting Module (APM) is calibrated with ISO-8655 standards. The Fit X1 delivers excellent results for qPCR standard curve and replicates.

Performance of Automated Pipetting Module (APM)
|1/8 channel- Volume 50 µl|
|1 µl||50 µl|
|Accuracy (Rel.)||± 7%||± 1%|
|Precision (Rel. CV)||≤ 7.5%||≤ 0.4%|
|1/8 channel - Volume 200 µl|
|10 µl||200 µl|
|Accuracy (Rel.)||± 3%||± 0.8%|
|Precision (Rel. CV)||≤ 1%||≤ 0.15%|
According to ISO-8655 standards ( Gravimetic method ), APM is calibrated in temperature (21 ~ 25ºC, ±0.5ºC) and humidity (60~90%) controlled environment. Twice-distilled water, robotic tips and microbalance were used.
