Eppendorf strives to ensure that all labs are smart, safe and stress-free

Eppendorf is a leading life science company that develops and sells instruments, consumables and services for liquid handling, sample handling and cell handling in laboratories worldwide

Eppendorf has announced the latest Advantage promotion period, until 31 December 2016, on a range of best-in-class solutions that drive productivity in the laboratory.

With sample safety, intuitive functionality and reliability in mind, Eppendorf offers solutions that support a smart, safe and stress-free environment for researchers across the life sciences industry.

For many research labs, handling hazardous liquids, such as foaming, viscous, volatile, dense, corrosive or hazardous solutions can be challenging, particularly when the properties of these liquids can affect and impair the accuracy and reproducibility of results.

The Advantage range includes, the ergonomically designed Multipette M4, with positive displacement, and Combitips advanced, which can eliminate these associated challenges.

The Multipette M4 offers a unique volume range (1–10µL) and can accommodate nine Combitips advanced sizes from 0.1–50mL. In addition, automatic Combitip recognition, combined with the ability to conduct 100 dispensing steps, without the need for refilling the tip, ensures fast, precise and contamination-free dispensing.

Steve Dey, Marketing Director, Eppendorf UK Limited, commented: 'We at Eppendorf are always striving to be the expert partner in life science laboratories. As one of the industry's technology leaders, we have set industry standards time and again and always look to the future to contribute to making repetitive laboratory workflows simple, precise, safe and efficient. Eppendorf Advantage is an opportunity for those working across life sciences to optimise their laboratory productivity.'

Additional solutions for researchers and technicians to take advantage of include the Eppendorf ThermoMixer C; with quick and easy-to-exchange SmartBlocks for common lab vessel and plate formats from 5–50µL, it is ideally suited to applications such as plasmid/RNA/DNA purification, cDNA synthesis, bacterial growth and lysis reactions at 100°C.

Researchers can expect consistently dependable and reproducible assay results owing to outstanding mixing performance, with 2DMix-Control, and exceptional temperature regulation, meaning samples can be simultaneously mixed and incubated.

Until 31 December, the 24-place Centrifuge 5424, and refrigerated 5424 R, will also be on offer, as part of a Special Value Pack which also includes an 18-place Eppendorf Kit rotor, giving researchers access to state-of-the-art cooling technology, for maximum sample protection. Similarly, researchers can purchase the Innova 44 and 44R incubator shakers, which offer broad temperature capabilities and varying shaking speeds for culturing a wide variety of cell types in flasks up to 5L.

Researchers and technicians will also be able to purchase the perfect tools for methods in nucleic acids, protein and turbidity measurements: the Eppendorf BioPhotometer D30 records at fixed wavelengths, clearly processes data volume, and makes evaluating results fast and simple, whereas the Eppendorf µCuvette G1.0 is ideal for microvolume measurements of highly concentrated samples without prior dilution.
