Liquid Handling Station flow pipetting robot with FlowBox

The Liquid Handling Station provides maximum flexibility for small and medium sample throughput and varied pipetting tasks. It closes the gap between electronic pipettes and large, expensive equipment. Seven ANSI / SLAS formatted workplaces can be freely assigned, including PCR tubes and strips, microcentrifuge tubes, reservoirs, and 96- or 384-well plates. Liquid ends are available in single-channel sizes and 8-channel versions for contact-free fluid delivery. The Liquid Handling Station's compact design and space-saving front door make it an ideal fit where benchtop space is limited. With an excellent price/performance ratio and straightforward operation, the system is economical for low and medium throughput labs. Typical applications include: PCR and qPCR ELISA Enzyme

Package HandyStep® touch S, DE-M, inclusive universal AC adapter and charging stand

Repetitive pipettes are the first choice when it comes to efficient dispensing of long series. Positive displacement pipettes are often the right solution for pipetting viscous media. The new stepper HandyStep® touch from BRAND combines both features. With the touchscreen display, you conveniently swipe back and forth between functions and always have an overview of the essential information on your work steps. Operation is easy, even with protective gloves on. And speaking of easy, the days of manually changing tips are over. On the HandyStep® touch, lightly tapping on the Eject icon on the display is enough to eject the tip. The HandyStep® touch repetitive pipette automatically recognizes the volume of the new BRAND PD- Tips II. This saves time and reduces the risk of error. Tips from many other manufacturers can also be used, providing maximum flexibility. Charging is easy and efficient: simply place the HandyStep® touch in the inductive charging stand and the battery automatically starts charging. Overview - Touchscreen operation with intuitive menu navigation in English, German, Spanish, French and Chinese - HandyStep® touch with the features multi-dispensing, auto-dispensing and pipetting; HandyStep® touch S with the additional features sequential dispensing, multi-aspiration and titration - Automatic size detection of BRAND PD-Tips II - Compatible with PD-Tips prior to the PD-Tips II generation and with tips from many other manufacturers: for example, Encode™ tips, Repet-Tips®, Combitips®, Combitips® plus, Combitips® advanced (the above-mentioned brands are property of their respective owners) - Automatic tip ejection - Variable volume adjustment from 1.0 μl to 50 ml - Easy to clean thanks to smooth surface without grooves and edges - Inductively rechargeable Limitations of use: Operating temperature of instrument and reagent should be between +15 °C and +40 °C (59 °F to 104 °F) (other temperatures upon request) Vapor pressure up to 500 mbar Viscosity: At 50 ml PD-Tip: 20 mPa s; at 5 ml PD-Tip: 260 mPa s; at 1,25 ml PD-Tip: 977 mPa

Transferpette® S, 20-200 µl, adjustable volume, D-200, DE-M

The Transferpette® S air displacement pipette allows you to work efficiently and ergonomically with both small and large volumes. Low operating forces and a short stroke ensure relaxed pipetting, even during long pipetting series. Due to its perfect ergonomics, the Transferpette® S provides a comfortable grip in any hand position, whether you are right- or left-handed, or have big or small hands. Changing your grip is not necessary, since the microliter pipette provides true one-hand operation: set the volume, pipette, eject the tip.The volume-change protection is also easy to operate with gloves on and protects your set volume against accidental adjustment. The Transferpette® S also features Easy Calibration technology, which makes calibration a breeze. Calibration can be carried out without tools. A compatibility table shows which tips fit which device, so that you always order the correct pipette tips.Limitations of use: Operating temperature of instrument and reagent should be between +15 °C and +40 °C (59 °F to 104 °F) (other temperatures upon request) Vapor pressure up to 500 mbar Viscosity: 260 mPa s For viscous media, the speed must be adjusted if necessary.

96-well PCR plate, non-skirted, elevated rim, transparent, PP, BIO-CERT® PCR QUALITY

For medium and high sample throughput, 96-well plates from BRAND are the efficient solution for PCR and qPCR and can be conveniently filled with multichannel pipettes or pipetting robots.The uniform and thin wall thicknesses of the wells ensure rapid transfer of the temperature from the cycler to the sample, thus reducing cycle times.A number of skirt choices ensures a good fit in common thermal cyclers for efficient heat transfer. For high flexibility, unskirted plates are the first choice. For clear identification, a barcode can be applied to semi-skirted plates. The same applies to fully-skirted plates, which are ideal for automation due to their rigidity. For qPCR, white plates are available that optimally reflect the fluorescence signals. BIO-CERT® PCR QUALITY: Free of human DNA, RNase, DNase, Pyrogens and
