Researchers at the University of Zurich in Switzerland are using INTEGRA’s VIAFLO 96/384 multichannel electronic pipette to streamline the experimental workflow of studies on Pseudomonas aeruginosa – a bacterium that commonly infects individuals with lung conditions, such as cystic fibrosis. Alexandre Figueiredo, a PhD student in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, explained: “We recently completed an evolutionary experiment on Pseudomonas, to understand how a specific siderophore – a molecule which binds and transports iron in microorganisms – assists its ability to infect other organisms, and how environmental conditions affect the production of this compound. The media for culturing different populations needed changing frequently, and so we required a system to make this workflow more efficient. I opted for the VIAFLO 96/384 after seeing my colleagues using it successfully for high throughput screening applications.”


“We used the VIAFLO 96/384 for filling plates with sterilized media, conducting serial transfers, diluting...
