Mobile pipette calibration facility at your doorstep!
Pipette Calibration on Call - Now available in Chennai & Bengaluru
Mobile pipette calibration facility at your doorstep!
Pipette Calibration is a very important part of any laboratory’s routine. Calibration ensures that pipettes are always working according to specifications and keeping the pipette error-free while doing daily dispensing. To facilitate easier calibration and maintenance of your pipettes, Eppendorf is pleased to announce the availability of “Mobile Pipette Calibration Facility” in Chennai & Bengaluru. A fully equipped vehicle for this purpose is now available. Contact us to get the vehicle to your facility. The calibration will be conducted in the parking lot of your facility! What’s more, the calibration certificate will also be issued instantly. No hassles to send the pipettes and wait for days to get the report!
Winner 2014 Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology

Eppendorf licenses technology for thermal cyclers to SensoQuest
Eppendorf AG has licensed patents covering gradient technology for thermal cyclers to SensoQuest GmbH, including German patent Nos. DE 196 55 282 and DE 196 55 141. Eppendorf utilizes the technology in its Eppendorf Mastercycler® pro gradient and Mastercycler nexus gradient models.
New: TruSeq® Stranded mRNA
Today Eppendorf announces the availability of the epMotion automation method for Illumina’s TruSeq Stranded mRNA library preparation kit for next-generation sequencing as “Illumina Qualified.” “Illumina Qualified” indicates that Illumina’s analysis of libraries prepared with this epMotion method has shown the libraries to perform comparably to those prepared manually.
For next generation sequencing systems a variety of sample preparation kits are available. These kits are needed to convert either DNA or RNA samples into sequencing ready libraries, a procedure that includes many steps and can be time consuming. RNA sequencing requires additional steps – either the depletion of unwanted ribosomal or the positive selection of mRNA from total RNA samples. Due to the complexity of the library construction methods, automation is regarded as highly useful.
The epMotion method can be used for the automated construction of 8, 16 or 24 libraries starting with 100 – 1000 ng of total RNA together with Illumina’s TruSeq Stranded mRNA kit. The overall hands-on time is less than 1.5 hours, while the total run time of the entire procedure is ~11.5 hours for 24 samples. Minimized hands-on time & high reproducibility with this automated method help to streamline and standardize the sequencing workflow.
Additional automated methods for NGS library preparation from Illumina are currently in development.
New epMotion 96
The new epMotion 96 from Eppendorf provides an ideal, time-saving solution for scientists undertaking the repetitive task of working with 96 or 384 format microplates or deep-well plates within life science research laboratories and pharmaceutical and industry laboratories. The epMotion 96 allows easy, rapid handling with high precision and accuracy compared to multi-channel manual pipettes and thanks to its ability to dispense into all 96 wells at the same time, makes it possible to simultaneously start or stop a biological assay for all wells in a plate. The system also makes the task more comfortable and efficient for laboratory workers by greatly reducing the risk of repetitive stress injury caused by manual pipetting.
