Eppendorf epMotion® 96 is designed to increase throughput and speed by facilitating versatile daily lab routines at low or medium throughput. Equipped with 96 channels, the helpful tool allows a synchronous pipetting of 96 wells: Entire 96-well plates can be pipetted at once, 384-well plates with an index of 4.
The semi-automated pipette is an intermediate between an electronic pipette and a fully automated system, combining the ease of use of pipettes with high precision and accuracy. Risks of time-dependent intra-plate gradients and human errors are reduced in favor of better reproducibility of results. The device scores on top with less installation effort compared to fully automated liquid handlers. With that, the small liquid handler epMotion® 96 can function as your entry towards automated workflows. You can handle increased throughput and improve efficiency, but you don't completely relinquish manual control.
Recent updates have extended the range of functions and usability. With the new column-wise pipetting technique, half plates can be handled, and dilution series created. In addition, ergonomics and user-friendliness have been improved. More intuitive handles and less operating force drastically reduce the risk of repetitive stress injury (RSI) when handling multiple plates.
Process plates 12 x faster
When a larger number of plates must be handled in parallel and multi-channel pipettes
do not offer the needed throughput, epMotion 96 represents a good choice. Pipette whole 96-well plates at once, or pipette 384 wells in 4 steps: simultaneous 96-well pipetting with epMotion 96 performs 12 times faster than 8 channel pipettes. This is what you can do faster and more precise:
- Replication and reformatting of 96- and 384-well plates
- Sample transfer
- Reagent and compound addition
For cell-based assays, it was shown that the usage of small liquid handler epMotion 96 saved up to 15 minutes compared to a manual 12-channel pipette. When compared to an electronic 12-channel pipette, it was still twice as quick. This valuable time can be used for other tasks and can ease your mind.
