Product Category Description:
Equipped with multiple ergonomic comfort adjustments and options, the Ergopet series of pipettors is designed to reduce fatigue on the pipetting hand while working inside a hood or on a benchtop. These devices allow users to maintain comfortable and natural hand positions that will reduce fatigue and stress throughout repeated pipetting procedures. The variable, extended height of these devices raises the tip of the pipet in use so that users are able to rest an elbow on the bench, thus supporting their arm and the pipettor.
Ergonomic features include a swiveling head that enables 90° rotation for unobstructed viewing of the pipet while aspirating and dispensing. The device's chuck can also be rotated to change the angle of the pipet from vertical to 15° outward. Taller models result in a raised pipet, which improves accuracy in sighting of the meniscus. All models are lightweight with a comfortable grip. Separated aspiration and dispensing soft-touch buttons are positioned within easy reach for fine control. The soft silicone chuck accepts glass or plastic serological pipets from 1–20mL, and creates a leakproof seal. A replaceable filter within the chuck protects pipets from over-aspiration.
The Ergopet Bellows series utilizes a rugged, hand-operated bellows that provides 100mL of pipetting volume and offers continuous, silent operation. These devices require no battery, power cord, or vacuum tubing. The Ergopet Air Powered series utilizes a remote air pump connected with lightweight, flexible tubing. The pump is powered by a 120V source to provide continuous operation. This configuration minimizes the overall weight of the device. Ergopet Powered devices offer increased mobility and the ability to control aspirating and dispensing speeds from slow (gravity) to fast (powered). These portable devices are powered by two rechargeable 1.2V AA NiMH batteries (included) that can be recharged approximately 500 times with the supplied wall charger. The Ergopet Memory series aspirates and dispenses precise liquid amounts repeatedly in memory mode without repeated referral to graduations. This series further reduces repetitive strain and stress. The Memory series devices are powered by two rechargeable 1.2V AA NiMH batteries (included).
The ABS weighted base stabilizes only Ergopet Powered and Memory devices in an upright position on benchtops or any flat surface. The wire support stand offers convenient in-use storage by holding the instrument in a vertical position. It is constructed of rigid wire with a blue epoxy finish.
Ordering Information: Accessory weighted base, filters, and support stand are all sold separately.
