Following years of research, and spending considerable time with R&D staff, Mettler Toledo has found that many people are using incorrect pipettes for the task at hand, which not only reduces pipetting accuracy and decreases productivity, but also causes discomfort and sometimes injury to the user.
Pipette users who experienced pain or discomfort while pipetting were usually unaware of the availability of a better ergonomic solution.
Mettler Toledo Pipette Product Manager Jason Smith explains that one cannot use the same pipette for all applications in the lab since not all pipettes are designed the same. It is important to start with the right pipette for any application as it not only simplifies the task but also ensures more productivity.
Key factors to look out for in a pipette include the design, which can have a significant impact on the user, especially when pipetting for hours on end. Since pipetting is the most repetitive task in laboratories, with many researchers commonly pipetting for 2-4 hours a day, low-force ergonomic pipettes should be considered.
Mettler Toledo has developed their entire Rainin pipette range with an ergonomic design focus, which has continued into the new Rainin XLS+ pipette range, containing both manual and electronic multi-channel pipettes.
Offering up to 28% less pipetting force, reduced weight and enhanced channel-to-channel consistency, Rainin XLS+ manual pipettes create a hand-saving pipetting experience that not only increases overall productivity, but also helps reduce data inconsistency.
Containing single channel, multichannel and adjustable spacer pipettes, the E4 XLS+ pipette range ensures users can choose a pipette that works best for their application.
E4 XLS+ pipettes allow users to speed up their workflow as they switch easily through features and functions on the carousel-like navigation menu, giving users access to a number of different modes and options.
Mettler Toledo also has a number of local Rainin pipetting specialists that can provide expert pipetting advice.
