Addressing Your Challenges

Master High-Throughput

  • Find out which tools are best suited to achieve maximum efficiency and highest precision
  • E.g. for nucleic acid isolation and real-time RT-PCR
  • For fast and easy distribution of master mixes


Ease your pipetting and mixing

  • Constant pipetting up and down can lead to severe physical tension in the long run
  • Electronic pipettes and smooth-running mechanical pipettes can simplify pipetting and mixing steps
  • Find out which pipette is best suited for your application

Reduce cross-contamination risks

  • Ice-cold solutions need special attention due to their difference in physical properties
  • Aggressive chemicals are often used for cleaning and decontamination
  • Learn more on achieving maximum precision and chemical resistant pipettes

Master high-throughput

The best Eppendorf solutions for mastering high throughput are:

  • Manual and automatic multi-dispensing with electronic dispenser (aspirate once – dispense many times into tubes and plates)
  • Electronic 8 and 12-channel pipettes for pipetting and dispensing steps
  • Mechanical 8 and 12-channel pipettes for pipetting steps

Electronic dispensers and tips

Fast mastermix distribution

Multipette®/Repeater® E3/E3x

With the electronic positive-displacement pipette Multipette/Repeater you are able to quickly and automatically distribute a master mix to a variety of reaction tubes and microplates. Just use the “dispensing” or “automatic dispensing” mode.

PCR-clean tips for Multipette®/Repeater® E3/E3x

Combitips® advanced

It is essential that the consumables for your rRT-PCR contain no impurities that could adversely affect the reaction. This is particularly crucial for the amplification of minute quantities of genetic substances. For your Multipette/Repeater E3/E3x appropriate tips are available in the purity grade PCR-clean and sterile amongst others.

Ease your pipetting and mixing

The most ergonomic Eppendorf solutions for repeated up and down pipetting:

  • Automatic pipetting & mixing with electronic pipettes
  • Ergonomic mechanical pipettes to reduce pipetting efforts

Effortless sample pipetting & mixing

With electronic pipettes

Eppendorf Xplorer®/Eppendorf Xplorer® plus

One of many recommendations during nucleic acid purification is mixing by pipetting up and down instead of vortexing. This is facilitated considerably by the “pipetting & mixing” mode of the electronic Eppendorf Xplorer/Eppendorf Xplorer plus, especially when throughput increases.

Applications with
Eppendorf Xplorer

Ensure Sample-Integrity

The best Eppendorf solutions for achieving highest precision when pipetting liquids of different physical properties:

  • Dosing ice-cold liquids with electronic dispenser
  • Autoclavable mechanical and electronical pipettes protecting you and your sample
  • Pipettes consisting of chemical resistant materials protecting your pipettes from damage

Precise pipetting of ice-cold and other problem liquids

Dosing ice-cold liquids

Multipette®/Repeater® E3/E3x

Whenever ice-cold liquids have to be dosed precisely, you can get the most out of it by using pipettes that work according to the positive-displacement principle.
