Electronic pipettes are designed to make work easier. They allow liquid aspiration and dispensing operations to be achieved at the press of a button, saving both time and energy. The multifunctionality offered by the different dispensing techniques (dispensing, mixing, manual pipetting) also ensures increased efficiency. This user guide explains the intuitive operating concept of the new electronic pipette Eppendorf Xplorer in more detail.
The electronic pipette Eppendorf Xplorer features innovative technical solutions, which have been particularly developed to enable precise liquid dispensing operations in the laboratory. The effect of these technical solutions on dispensing reproducibility was examined on the basis of measurement results and calculations, with subsequent demonstration of the advantages concerning dispensing precision and accuracy.
Piston-stroke pipettes with an air cushion are subject to the effects of temperature, air pressure and air humidity. Such effects are kept to a minimum by constructive measures which are designed to ensure that dispensing accuracy is not significantly affected. Solutions whose physical data differs significantly from that of water, or temperature differences between the pipette, the pipette tip and the dispensed liquid may also lead to incorrect dispensing. These factors make it necessary to be able to readjust the devices for different physical conditions. Thanks to its numerous adjustment possibilities the new electronic Xplorer pipette from Eppendorf allows for easy compensation of such physical effects.
The Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept, with its 3 sheres, encompasses a holistic ergonomic principle that creates healthy working conditions in the laboratory. Each of these spheres has stringent ergonomic requirements that directly involve the work processes of users. Herein, the ergonomic requirements of each sphere are described in detail.
An ergonomic pipette does not focus on just one specific feature but rather all aspects of the pipette relating to physical, cognitive and organizational ergonomics.
