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.
Mantis Checkerboard Dispense Patterns
Checkerboard 1 and Checkerboard 2 dispense pattern options have been added to the Dispense List Designer,
speeding up the dispense design process.
Improved Two chip positions for LC3 tuning
For a more precise LC3 tuning result, you can now perform a pick-up and drop-off test in two chip positions. If
you have the 18 chip carousel, you can test for position 1 and position 10. If you have the 24 chip carousel, you
can test for position 1 and position 13.
