Eppendorf introduces connected electronic pipettes
Eppendorf has developed the brand new VisioNize® pipette manager and is on its way towards digitalization in manual pipetting. The system is ideal for scientists who manage a high workload and require many intricate pipetting steps. Technology solutions are here to help scientists improve speed, accuracy, and efficiency and collaboration. This is where connectivity and the Internet-of-Things approach come in.
The liquid types support the laboratory user in the correct handling of challenging liquids, e.g. ethanol, and ensure correct pipetting results via optimized speed settings and preset pre-wetting. Thanks to predefined liquid types, no expert knowledge or configuration effort is required to get immediately started. Of course, users can create their own types at any time, depending on their needs, and share them with colleagues.
The integrated software provides helpful guidance to ensure accuracy when working with different liquid types. Conventional tablets can also be connected alongside the electronic pipettes to work in parallel. Each feature is dedicated to ease-of-use for ad-hoc work, which is by far the largest part of laboratory work for the majority of users.
Back in 1961, Eppendorf launched the world's first microliter system, the "Marburg Pipette", thus revolutionizing pipetting forever. The year 2021 marks both the 60th anniversary of this groundbreaking development and the next step Eppendorf is taking to support scientists on the way to the networked laboratory of the future.
