Why should I consider using an electronic pipette?
Compared to mechanical pipettes, electronic pipettes have a number of advantages in many applications. The most important benefits of using an electronic pipette are: better ergonomics by requiring almost no operating forces, a higher precision and reproducibility and an additional efficiency gain due to various operating modes (such as e.g. pipetting and dispensing with only one tool). Furthermore, electronic instruments are the basis for digital lab solutions supporting you with choosing settings for different liquid types, collaborating across the lab or documenting steps. With the Eppendorf Pipette Software Update Tool you can easily update your electronic pipette and stay up to date with the latest software improvements and new features!

Everything under control - all the time
All information on the pipette display is clearly readable, regardless of your hand position or work position. The optimally angled high-resolution display with a controllable brightness setting guarantees a comfortable work environment.
Enjoy easy and smart operation with the Xplorer (plus) electronic pipette
Smart pipette operation with a unique multi-functional rocker gives you precise control over liquid aspiration and dispensing. Simply press the rocker up to aspirate liquids and down to dispense liquids. You can also use the rocker to skip or repeat the blow-out process and even stop the aspiration or dispensing process altogether: just press the rocker down while aspirating or up while dispensing to stop the piston movement.

High performance meets renowned Eppendorf ergonomics
Never feel the strain of hard work thanks to excellent ergonomics implemented according to the criteria of the Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept. The perfect balance and hand rest of the Eppendorf Xplorer electronic pipettes guarantee a low-impact position and means for relaxation between pipetting. The handle and size of the control buttons feature a user-friendly design, irrespective of your hand size. Because your performance is the most valuable resource, we have significantly reduced the weight and required operating force of the Eppendorf Xplorer pipettes.
Ergonomics at Eppendorf - A history of practiced innovation
The spring-loaded tip cone and SOFTeject features significantly reduce the force needed to attach and eject tips with Eppendorf Xplorer pipettes. Operating forces can be reduced even further by combining the Xplorer plus 16- and 24- channel pipettes with epT.I.P.S® 384 pipette tips with SOFTattach technology.
Spring-loaded tip cones for reliable tip fit and effortless attachment
Spring-loaded tip cones are available in all Eppendorf pipettes up to 1,000 µL (except Move It® 300 µL models) to save you time and energy. With haptic feedback, all it takes is one gentle push-down for easy tip attachment. The spring limits the attachment forces and at the same time guarantees a reproducible and safe tip fit. This clever design provides increased user-to-user reproducibility and more consistent results between different lab members.
SOFTeject reduces tip ejection forces by 50 %
All non-adjustable multi-channel pipettes from Eppendorf use the innovative SOFTeject technology to ensure that during each single tip ejection stroke, the outside tips eject before the inside tips. This is not noticeable to the user but reduces tip ejection forces by 50 %. You just lightly press the ejection button once and the tips are automatically ejected in succession.
Speed up your workflows with electronic multi-channel pipettes
Do you need to easily and quickly fill a 24-, 96- or even 384-well microplate? With the efficient Eppendorf Xplorer (plus) 8-, 12-, 16- and 24-channel as well as Move It adjustable tip spacing pipettes you can perform high volume precision work faster. The spring-loaded tip cones help you to load multi-channel tips quickly and securely without a need for rocking. Get extremely consistent sample pickup across all channels and maximize user-to-user reproducibility for more consistent results among members of the lab.
Easily fill 96-well plates with Xplorer (plus) 8- or 12-channel pipettes featuring a cone distance of 9 mm. The 1,200 µL volume variant is ideal for filling deepwell plates.
