INTEGRA – A Driving Force in Pipetting Innovation
Product News Mar 29, 2018
INTEGRA is on a mission to revolutionize the world of pipetting, engaging with its customers to understand the challenges faced by today’s laboratories. This close communication enables the company to bring novel products – such as the VOYAGER adjustable tip spacing pipette, GripTips and the ASSIST PLUS pipetting robot – to the market year after year.
VOYAGER is the only electronic multichannel pipette offering automatic adjustment of tip spacing at the touch of a button for maximum flexibility. Single-handed, push-button adjustment of tip spacing allows parallel transfer of samples – from tubes to plates or 96- to 384-well formats – to be performed with ease, increasing speed and throughput. For laboratories that prefer manual pipetting, EVOLVE pipettes replace the traditional single rotating plunger with three number lock dials that are quickly and easily set to the required volume. INTEGRA’s novel tip-pipette interface – GripTips – guarantees trouble-free tip pick-up, eliminating the pick-up inconsistencies and failures that lead to misalignment across a multichannel pipette, leakage or even tips falling off. The simple snap-on design securely and effortlessly attaches the tip to any INTEGRA pipette, ensuring it is perfectly aligned and sealed, without any additional manipulation.
Ergonomics is important too, and INTEGRA’s compact ASSIST and ASSIST PLUS pipetting robots enable automation of repetitive processes – such as serial dilutions, reformatting and set-up of assay plates – for flexible, reproducible and error-free pipetting at an affordable price. New applications are accessed simply by swapping to a different INTEGRA pipette, ensuring the systems will never become obsolete, and the pipettes can still be used manually when desired.
