Liquid handling

Making the essential exceptional!

Our liquid handling portfolio provides you with accurate and repeatable nanolitre to microlitre pipetting, every time, irrespective of liquid viscosity or environmental conditions. Each of these innovative disposable micropipette tips has its own individual piston, not an air gap or system liquid, offering true positive displacement pipetting with no risk of clogging, corrosion or cross-contamination.

Innovation

Unrivalled pipetting accuracy delivered through technology innovation

The difficulties of pipetting accurately at low volumes are well known, as are issues associated with viscous liquids. Our innovative technology development team have overcome these with the novel use of positive displacement dispensing from disposable tips. Each disposable micropipette has its own individual piston, not an air gap or system liquid, offering true positive-displacement pipetting with no risk of cross-contamination. This provides accurate and repeatable nanolitre to microlitre pipetting, every time, irrespective of liquid viscosity, from all of our liquid handling products.
