a multichannel micropipette dispenses (one or many) ____ volume(s) of sample at a time.(?)?
I'm confused as to how whether it would be the same volume for all channels or differnt volumes for all channels.

Multi-well pipettes dispense only one volume, but do so via many channels. They are designed so that repeated (similar) volumes of reagent can be delivered into multi-well plates, which saves time when working in such a format. The standard is a 96-well plate, and they have 8-channel and 12-channel multi-pipettors so that you can quickly do either 12 repeats of 8 each, or 8 repeats of 12 each.
You set whatever volume you want to dispense and all channels of the pipette will dispense that same volume.
