Starting a new lab is a tough juggling act of finding reliable equipment without overspending. After spending money on the necessities, such as lab equipment and consumables, you may find your budget for pipettes lower than you’d like. Especially for labs intending for a heavy pipetting regime, this could be problematic when looking to purchase multichannel pipettes. Fortunately, there are methods to get an affordable and reliable multichannel pipette without breaking the bank.
Gilson brand pipettes are considered to be the industry standard of all things pipettes. Known for their durability and reliability, Gilson pipettes are certainly a classic. Gilson’s PIPETMAN Neo multichannel even made it into the top standard pipettes category in our 2016 Scientist’s Guide to Multichannel article. While the Neo pipette is considered to be a standard go to multichannel, even a quick glance at our article will show that there are multichannel’s with more inclusive designs. The Nichiryo Nichipet Ex II and the Labnet BioPette Plus have more desired features than the Gilson Neo multichannel. So why is the PIPETMAN Neo multichannel so popular?
Rainin multichannel pipettes and Capp multichannels have found a way to combat the unspoken danger of pipetting, repetitive strain injury (RSI). Researchers and Manufactures are constantly looking to reduce or remove the risk of RSI. Some of the simplest solutions include modifying the mold of a pipette and reducing the weight, but there are two solutions that are rarely considered. The force it takes to mount a tip and the intensity of the plunger force highly contributes to the risk of RSI. This risk can be doubled when using a multichannel pipette, as it takes more force to manipulate all of the channels. We will examine two methods to combat these problems found in Rainin multichannel and Capp multichannels.
This 384 multichannel pipette will solve one of the most challenging barriers to increasing throughput in the lab, which is cost.
