Pipettes are basic apparatus that find diverse uses in biology, chemistry, food and production and pharmaceutical industries. They are used on a daily basis in several laboratories pertaining to these industries, and many technicians and lab operators spend hours on a regular basis using this apparatus for various experiments and operations.
Manual pipetting, however, is prone to several error factors and causes physical exertion that is tiring when done daily. The ideal alternative to this situation is to use electronic pipettes for the same tasks. There are several benefits to replacing manual pipettes with its electronic counterparts.
Benefits of electronic pipettes when compared to manual devices
The automated nature of electronic pipettes allows multiple users to use the same device at different times. A single electronic pipette can be calibrated and automated by use for different settings, and the memory settings allow error-free operation. These devices come with recall facilities which makes it possible to perform multidispensing, diluting and mixing operations without the need for programming at every instance.
Simple click operation is used with these devices, and it allows you to switch between operations by easy clicks. Reconfiguration is thus not necessary for change of operation. Battery charging is easy and the pipette can be used during the charging phase as well, allowing for seamless and continuous use.
Other advantages of electronic pipetting
Apart from the technological aspects, electronic pipettes are very easy to understand and use. The device doesn’t require any detailed instructions to understand, and operation is simple and straightforward.
Electronic pipettes are ergonomically designed for ease of use. These are light and are designed to easily fit into the user’s hands. Electronic pipettes work with universal tips, making it possible to adapt operation across different lab environments. The flexibility of use is another factor. It is also portable, making it convenient to use and transport. These pipettes are well-suited for all basic and advance lab operations and allow high precision operations to be performed with least scope for errors. It is also suitable for repeated tasks, and the margin of error is drastically reduced when compared to that of manual operations in similar conditions.
