A successful dispensing device has been built for use in biotechnology applications requiring nanoliter volume liquid transfer. Air pressure is used as the primary driving force and is controlled via a high speed miniature solenoid valve as opposed to many existing systems that use a valve in line with constantly pressurized fluid to start and stop the dispensing action. This automated pressure-driven system is used to improve a typical piezodriven microdispenser. The resulting system is much less prone to failures resulting from air entrainment and can dispense much higher viscosity fluids than the microdispenser alone.
