The new electronic Multipette®/Repeater® E3 and E3x from leading life science company Eppendorf raise the bar in terms of ease of use and versatility of electronic manual dispensers.

Developed in line with Eppendorf’s Physio Care Concept, electric motor driven dispensing helps to minimize the strain of work in the laboratory. Eppendorf’s intuitive design minimizes the risk of RSI by lowering operation forces and positioning buttons to accommodate natural hand movements. To further guarantee ease of use and reduce eye strain, the new Multipettes/Repeaters have a larger and easy-to-read colour display with clear arrangement of all adjustable parameters. These can now be displayed in 9 different languages to ensure correct operation and correct results worldwide.

The new possibility to save frequently used parameter settings as favourites saves time and facilitates the usage even more. An adjustable reminder for service helps to ensure correct results.

In addition the Multipette/Repeater E3x offers the highest flexibility in use compared to other manual dispensers with its 7 different operation modes.

1. Pipetting from 1µL to 50mL with one instrument only
2. Dispensing up to 100 steps in a row with one aspiration only
3. Automatic dispensing at fixed time intervals
4. Sequential dispensing of different volumes
5. Multiple aspiration of equal volumes one Combitip
6. Titration: Sensitive dosing of liquids while volume is displayed
7. New: Multiple aspiration and display of unknown volumes with
immediate dispensing in desired partial volumes

Automated tip recognition and volume calculation for all tip sizes prevents the risk of manual pipetting errors, improving reliability. Eppendorf’s Multipettes/Repeaters are the only manual dispensers that can recognize all tip sizes. When combined with Combitips advanced®, they form a concerted dispensing system without compromising on accuracy and precision.

All Eppendorf’s Multipettes/Repeaters allow for precise sequential dispensing of samples up to 100 times, reducing experiment times compared to conventional techniques. Also, they are ideal for working with ‘problematic’ liquids, such as viscous or volatile solutions.

Regular pipettes work according to the air cushion principle, where the liquid is separated from the piston by an air cushion. These are highly accurate in most applications, but their performance can be affected by the viscosity, volatility, temperature and surface tension of the liquid. The new Multipette/Repeater system employs positive displacement technology to dispense liquid directly without an air cushion. This ensures that the correct volume is delivered every time following a single aspiration, even for fluids with complicated physical properties. In addition, the risk of cross contamination of biological samples and carry-over of residuals of hazardous or radioactive liquids is eliminated as the liquid is protected with a hermetically sealing piston.

Rudolf Walczak, Global Product Manager Cell and Liquid Handling says: “Since introducing the first piston-stroke pipette 30 years ago, Eppendorf products have continually improved the analytical productivity of life science laboratories. The Multipette/Repeater E3 and E3x are the manifestation of Eppendorf’s twin development goals of higher efficiency and improved user comfort. The smart design offers performance and safety improvements in every area, such as the use of hermetically sealed pistons to prevent aerosol contamination during dispensing. This simultaneously improves pipetting accuracy and protects the user from radioactive or toxic substances”.
