How does the SmartDispenser®
Control Center interact?
AirFree® Automated Liquid Handling Platform
The inner diameter (I.D.) and length of the Fishman® syringe barrels are loaded into the Fishman® firmware. The user inputs the desired volume into the menu system. An algorithm, using the I.D. and length, converts the volume into forward steps. Reverse motion (or backoff steps) are also programmed into the menu system. Backoff steps are added to forward steps then subtracted when the dispense is complete. Therefore, the net result is the volume entered. The firmware combined with the Linear Drive System repeats the same motion every single dispense.
