The comprehensive Acura® manual pipette line includes nine multichannel models covering volumes from 0.5 µl up to 350 µl. The line is now completed with a new 8-channel model ranging 10 – 100 µL.
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. .
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.
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.
