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.
Gilson, an industry leader in manual and automated liquid handling instruments, today announces the next step in the company’s path to enable verifiable science and make lab life easier for researchers. In a press conference at analytica, Nicolas Paris, CEO of Gilson, reveals the company’s direction of focusing on Internet of Things (IoT) cloud-based solutions to improve laboratory data reliability and reproducibility.
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.
