A recently introduced electronic pipetting system—now available for biotech and life science researchers—boasts the ability to adjust the distance between tips while maintaining precise sample volumes on every channel.

The Thermo Fisher Scientific (Milford, MA, USA) E1-ClipTip electronic pipettes combine the security of the proprietary "Cliptip" tip locking mechanism with the freedom of adjustable tip spacing.

Cliptip enables secure tip attachment with low tip attachment and ejection forces. The system guarantees an airtight seal on every channel, which ensures consistent and accurate liquid transfer for higher quality results. Adjustable tip spacing allows users to transfer multiple samples between different labware formats using one pipette, resulting in fewer repetitions and 90% less time compared to single channel manual pipettes.

“Scientists working in liquid handling and sample preparation need pipettes they can trust,” said Raymond Mercier, business director, liquid transfer at Thermo Fisher Scientific. “The Thermo Scientific E1-ClipTip electronic pipette’s interlocking technology provides outstanding sample security and makes pipetting more efficient with the ability to transfer samples quickly between different labware formats using the same pipette throughout the protocol.”
