New Multichannel Pipettes Ensure Data Accuracy and Ergonomic Comfort

New XLS+ multichannel pipettes offer reliability, ease-of-use.

Mettler Toledo presents its next generation of Rainin multichannel pipettes. The manual Rainin Pipet-Lite XLS+ and electronic Rainin E4 XLS+ offer users durable, lightweight liquid ends and new mechanical designs that all but eliminate hand strain while ensuring the highest channel-to-channel consistency.

This combination of improved ergonomic comfort and exceptional performance-long the hallmark of Rainin multichannels-helps pipette operators work more comfortably and reduce the risk of error and potentially expensive rework. Experiment costs go down as throughput accuracy increases.

Whether a research team’s objective is to be “first to publish” or “first to market,” the Rainin XLS+ multichannel pipettes represent an intelligent advance in both performance and ergonomics.

Reduced weight and lower pipetting/tip-ejection forces - combined with improved balance - reduce operator fatigue during intensive 96-well plate work.

Enhanced reliability ensures data integrity. And operators concerned about cross-contamination will appreciate XLS+’s reduced stiction (piston stickiness), which helps to eliminate splash-up.

Capitalizing on recent advances in molding technology, Rainin has achieved an optimal balance between lightness and performance-two goals that often run counter to one another.

In addition to new internal designs and materials, new smaller surface-area lip seals require less force and reduce drag.

Taken together, these and other new design elements reduce weight and increase reliability for a more pleasurable-and repeatable-pipetting experience.
