9 Unique Pipettes You Should Probably Consider

9 Unique Pipettes You’ve Been Missing Out On

Pipettes are an essential tool in the laboratory, how else would you manually transfer a precise measurement of liquid from one vessel to the next? Pipettes come in all shapes and sizes, from massive ones to smaller ones. Available in manual, electronic, multichannel, and single – pipettes are a diverse bunch. While you’re probably used to the design of a Gilson® or Rainin® pipette, all pipettes differ in design, build, and overall precision. Here are 9 Unique Pipettes You Should Consider (in no particular order): Read more

Don’t Panic: Stay Relaxed When Using ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax

Your pipette and sample are safe with ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S.® and ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S.® SealMax

ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax

Eppendorf ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. were the first tips with a two-phase filter for ultimate protection against aerosols and biomolecules. Building on the technology present in the first Dualfilter, Eppendorf expands its current ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. portfolio with a self sealing tip, the new ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax with liquid blocking technology is recommended for when you need additional protection against over pipetting. ep

Dualfilter T.I.P.S. and ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax are manufactured to the highest quality standards from pure, non-recycled materials under cleanroom conditions without the use of interfering slip agents, biocides or plasticizers.

Ideally suited for methods where high sensitivity and reproducibility are essential, ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. and ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax are especially recommended for applications such as PCR and microbiology where preserving sample integrity and preventing cross contamination are critical. Read more

In case of accidental over-pipetting, self-sealing filter tips provide additional protection against contamination by forming a sealed barrier upon contact with the sample liquid, preventing it from passing through the filter. The ability to recover the sample as much as possible thereafter is questionable. An investigation was carried out to determine the sample recovery rate of self-sealing filter tips following over-pipetting of water. Results show that nearly complete sample recovery is achievable using ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. SealMax with regard to water. It has the highest recovery rate and reproducibility irrespective of the filter tip size when compared with two other manufacturers of self-sealing filter tips. Similar recovery rates may be expected when working with other aqueous solutions having physical properties like water. Read more

BrandTech Dispensette 3 Bottletop Dispenser Can Save Biology Labs Hundreds in Grants

Why BrandTech Dispensette 3 bottletop dispensers can save you hundreds in grant money on reagents and the purchase of unnecessary pipette repeaters.


Dispensette III Digital Bottletop DispensersBrandTech Dispensette 3 bottletop dispenser can be your lab’s solution. Are you constantly dispensing the same amount of solution 2-3 times a day, five days a week with a repeater? What if you had the option of using an alternative product that guarantees the same precise results of a repeater minus the stress of your poor thumb and sanity?

Bottle top dispensers can be used in any laboratory where measured amounts of liquids are needed, including biology, chemistry, food & beverage, mining, petrochemical, and wasterwater labs. According to Jakub Latusek, BrandTech®’s Distributor Relations Manager, “Choosing a bottle top dispenser versus a repeater comes down to preference and convenience of each particular application. When it comes down to it, if you are dispensing the same reagent regularly, it’s generally easier to attach a dispenser to a stock reagent bottle instead of pouring into smaller bottles and risking a hazardous spill.” If you know the volume of liquid you’re dispensing, save yourself the tedious repetition and stress to your thumb, use a Dispensette® bottle top dispenser.

The use of various filter tips for preparation of PCR experiments can lead to significant decreases in the efficiency of DNA amplification. With a minimal effect on PCR reactions, ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S. are particularly well suited for preparing PCR experiments; this is evident with both classic PCR and real-time PCR. Read more

CAPP Multichannel Pipettes Increase Productivity in Labs

Multichannel pipettes are one of the main ways to increase throughput and in turn drive down sample costs especially if you are working with expensive reagents. In The Secret of High Productivity in the Research Lab, Mark Beards stated that life science research is “complex, lengthy, costly, and the failure rate high.” The easiest and most economical way of increasing throughput is upgrading your labs pipettes from single channel to multichannel. Historically, most lab technicians are weary of upgrading to multichannel pipettes because of tip fit issues, weight of the pipette, and accuracy due to limited range. Hence many technicians are still using single channel pipettes today. Fortunately, lab technicians now have a pipette that solves all of those problems allowing them to be more productive and reduce their labs overall costs. Read more

What is the Most Ergonomic Electronic Pipette?

ergonomic electronic pipette features - biohit picusTwo of the pipettes that claim to be the most ergonomic electronic pipette in the liquid handling market are the Sartorius Biohit Picus and Rainin E4 XLS. Why? Biohit is the creator of the electronic pipette and Rainin is the innovator of LiteTouch™ technology. Both of these manufacturers present electronic pipettes that they claim to be “ergonomic.” According to a study in Applied Ergonomics, led by G. David and P. Buckle, lab technicians who utilized manual pipettes more than 220 hours per year had more hand complaints compared to those who pipetted less. In order to alleviate hand injuries among lab technicians who are pipetting long hours on day-to-day basis – electronic pipette is the revolutionary and ergonomic solution that needs to be considered.
