New Eppendorf Research® plus and Eppendorf Xplorer® plus 16- and 24-channel pipettes and epT.I.P.S.® 384.           

Do you work with 384-well plates and strive for more efficient manual pipetting methods? Your worries are over. The new Eppendorf Research® plus and Eppendorf Xplorer® plus 16- and 24-channel pipettes and innovative pipette tips epT.I.P.S.® 384 make working with 384-well plates efficient, ergonomic, and safe.

Once throughput increases and sample volumes decrease, users face a dilemma. The so-called ‘alternate well pipetting method’, which uses 8 and 12 channel pipettes to fill 384-well plates, demands intense concentration; furthermore, it is time-consuming and carries a high risk of error.

With their 16 and 24 channels, the new mechanical multichannel pipettes Eppendorf Research plus and the new electronic multichannel pipettes Eppendorf Xplorer plus can now tackle entire columns and rows of a 384-well plate in one single step. Up to 24 reactions may thus be started and stopped simultaneously. An entire plate can be managed manually within the space of a minute. In this way, the user will save time while at the same time improving the reproducibility of their results.

  • Feel the magic of filling a 384-well plate within a minute
  • No more mistakes or tedious work due to inconvenient alternate well pipetting with 8- and 12-channel pipettes
  • Set up an automated process manually, and have a back-up system in case automation fails
  • Increase your throughput and change from 96- to 384-well plates. There's no reason to hesitate anymore!

Save Time: Fill a 384-Well Plate Manually within a Minute    

  • Process complete columns and rows with 16- and 24- channel pipettes, respectively, in just one step, therefore reducing pipetting steps
  • Start and stop up to 24 reactions simultaneously and increase reproducibility of results
  • Process one 384- instead of four 96-well plates
  • Have 384 tips in one tip box available instead of using four boxes

Innovative Tips with Extraordinary Tip Fit and Tightness for Safe 384-Well Plate Manoeuvring 

Manual pipetting of 384-well plates is tedious? ‘Alternate well pipetting’ with 8- and 12-channel pipettes is not a joy and prone to error? This is now a thing of the past.

The system that comprises the innovative Eppendorf pipette tips epT.I.P.S.® 384 and ep Dualfilter T.I.P.S.® 384 will afford the user the utmost security. The unique SOFTattach technology utilises elastic forming grooves that contribute to a perfect tip fit as well as to a perfect seal of the system. The tip attachment forces could thus be reduced by an additional 40% per cone. An extremely fine tip shape that displays perfect coaxiality makes secure manoeuvring of samples into the tiny wells of a 384-well plate as easy as pie. With these innovations, the Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept® has once again achieved a significant leap forward, and even under conditions of increased throughput, the pipetting experience has now become even more ergonomic and comfortable.

Watch the new video which gives you a vivid impression of the new pipetting system. Discover the innovative epT.I.P.S.® 384 with elastic forming grooves, optimised tip shape and coaxially, for safe manoeuvring in 384-well plates.
