VBLOK 200At the beginning of April, Clickbio, Inc.— a winner of the 2016 SLAS Innovation AveNEW Award—launched VBLOK 200, the world’s first high-capacity, low dead-volume, centrifuge-friendly collection plate.

“The VBLOK 200 is truly revolutionary—in a world of ever-more expensive reagents and custom chemistries, we’ve designed and manufactured the only reservoir on the market that gives researchers the high capacity and low dead-volume they’ve been looking for. Best of all, the VBLOK 200 lets researchers transfer all that valuable liquid without using tips,” said Clickbio CEO and cofounder Craig Vincze, PhD. “This is a must-have tool for every robotic lab in the world today—saving researchers time, money, and effort. We created it for smarter science that’s good to the last drop.”

The new reservoir is injection-molded from virgin medical-grade polypropylene, certified DNase, RNase, and pyrogen free, and available in certified sterile. It provides a novel ANSI:SLAS, ISO 9001 solution to the shortfalls of off-the-shelf plasticware, the company adds. With a total capacity of 282 mL, the VBLOK 200 has a graduation mark at 200 mL for visual reference, and comes individually packaged for quality control. The VBLOK 200 is available for purchase through most major distributors and is also available for purchase online.
