Mettler Toledo says its new Rainin AutoRep S manual repeater pipette provides a simple, flexible and ergonomic solution for any application requiring repeated liquid dispensing steps over a wide range of volumes.

The AutoRep S can dispense 59 different liquid volumes, ranging from 2µL to 5µL.

A filling lever on the front of the instrument simplifies aspirating liquids and the dispensing lever is conveniently placed for thumb-action control. Its extended finger hook, narrow shape and ergonomic grip work together to make the AutoRep S easy to hold over long periods and let it rest comfortably in either hand.

The stroke-setting wheel makes selecting sample dispensing volumes and iterations for specific application requirements fast and easy. An ejection key further streamlines workflow by quickly ejecting spent syringes, eliminating the need to detach them manually. Reference tables attach to the back of the instrument to aid in selecting the appropriate syringe size and stroke setting for a particular application.

‘The new AutoRep S represents a significant advancement in repeater pipette technology,’ said Rainin product manager Brian Perry.

‘In addition to offering the highest precision and accuracy, the AutoRep S is 25% lighter than its predecessor, the AutoRep M. It features many enhancements to improve ergonomics and ease of operation – an important consideration for people who work with large sample sets that require multiple, repetitive pipetting steps.’

The AutoRep S works with syringes from many manufacturers. Rainin’s Encode family of disposable syringes now includes 1ml and 10ml syringes, giving users a broad selection of pipetting formats and dispensing volumes. The syringes are available in sterile and non-sterile versions.
