New PIPETBOY acu 2 serological pipettor from INTEGRA.

Building upon over 30 years of unmatched quality and hundreds of thousands of instruments in use worldwide - INTEGRA has announced the launch of the new PIPETBOY acu 2 serological pipettor.

The second generation of PIPETBOY acu is equipped with the latest technology providing a significant increase in pipetting speed and a sizeable weight reduction making using the instrument over extended periods of time even more comfortable.

These two new developments help improve users productivity and deliver an enhanced ergonomic pipetting experience.

Liquid handling in the millilitre range using serological pipettes is a daily task for many labs. Unlike rubber bulb fillers, the use of seriological pipettors improves the efficiency and precision of users liquid handling.

The PIPETBOY acu 2 serological pipettor combines all essential characteristics for productive work with pipettes: precision, speed, ease-of-use, comfort, long operating battery life and reliability.

PIPETBOY acu 2 is designed for use with all commercially available glass and plastic serological pipettes in the volume range 1-100 ml.

Pipetting using PIPETBOY acu 2 is controlled by two operating buttons and an adjustment wheel for setting the pipetting speed. Precise drop-by-drop dispensing is easily achieved by applying a slight pressure on the operating button.

When working with large volume pipettes, the new Turbo Mode provides the instrument with 20% extra pipetting speed, making it the fastest pipettor on the market.

Powered by a new high-performance Lithium Polymer battery - PIPETBOY acu 2 now provides an extended operating time of over 6.5 hours non-stop pipetting.

To avoid contamination from accidentally absorbed liquids PIPETBOY acu 2 is protected by a hydrophobic filter. PIPETBOY acu 2 is available in a range of 6 attractive colours.

Lighter, faster and with a longer operating time than its illustrious predecessor - each PIPETBOY acu 2 comes with a 3-year extended warranty to safeguard users investment.
