Pipetting problem liquids such as foaming, viscous, volatile, dense, corrosive, or hazardous solutions can be a real challenge when using air-cushion pipettes. The properties of these liquids can affect the precision and impair the reproducibility of the user’s results. Additionally there is the risk of pipette contamination or even damage by aggressive liquids and aerosols. .
INTEGRA has prepared an explanatory application guide that demonstrates the benefits of its electronic adjustable tip spacing VOYAGER II pipette range in transferring liquid samples between different labware formats. Many laboratory applications require liquid transfers between various labware formats.
Yes. When dispensing detergents and liquids with high viscosity such as glycerol, pipette tips made from standard polypropylene tend to form a film around the inside wall resulting in liquid retention. Depending on the retained volume and user’s application, this can affect assay accuracy and precision.
Unlike traditional pipettes which utilize a single rotating plunger to set volumes, the EVOLVE features three adjustable dials for setting each individual volume digit. Simply depress and twist the plunger to unlock the volume dials. Once unlocked, freely adjust the three dials to rapidly set the desired volume. This revolutionary approach allows users to set volumes more than ten times faster.
