Newswise — FRAMINGHAM, Mass., Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Eppendorf AG announces the release of its new Move It® Adjustable Spacing Pipettes. This new line of pipettes significantly reduces operating time when compared to single-channel pipettes, building efficiencies in laboratories.
As a response to customer requests, Eppendorf designed this efficient and safe solution for synchronous pipetting a series of samples between different vessel formats such as between tubes and plates.
Move It has a unique design which does not use any tubing connections between cone and piston-cylinder system. Eliminating the tubing connections offers outstanding performance advantagePhoto - https://mma.prnewswire.com/
"Single-channel pipettes have been used to transfer individual samples from one vessel format to another which can be inefficient, tedious and error-prone, this is especially true when loading 384-well plates," Casey Ganshirt, Regional Marketing Manager for Eppendorf North America explains. "This requires concentrated back-and-forth pipetting 384 times which can be tiresome. Move It pipettes significantly reduce this back-and-forth and therefore accelerate and simplify the workflow."
Eppendorf engineers have developed Move It with a special design to ensure it is balanced and ergonomic. This allows the scientist to have a natural, relaxed hand position, even when adjusting the pipette, making it reliable and reducing fatigue.
Move It is available now with 4, 6, 8, and 12 channels, mechanical or electronic. More information is available at www.eppendorf.com/move-it and photos are available in our Press Kit.
