Mantis 3.4: Multi-Plate Dispensing, Configurable Dispense Path, Checkerboard Dispense Patterns

December 28, 2015 by Astri Leave a Comment

Multi-Plate Dispensing
Mantis now provides you with multi-plate dispensing for one dispense list. This feature saves you more time
because the wash/recovery process will be done only after all the plates are successfully dispensed, and the
priming process will be executed only at the beginning (plate number 1)

Configurable Dispense Path
Mantis now provides a configurable dispense path, enabling you to dispense your plate not only horizontally
but also vertically. This Vertical path option can improve the dispensing time spent in some particular dispense
list designs. You can configure the dispense path from the Options menu.
