Product News: PIPETMAN® M Multichannel Motorized Pipetting
24 Nov 2011
Gilson, Inc. has announced the release of the PIPETMAN® M Multichannel, the new electronic and motorized extension of the PIPETMAN M family of pipettes and the latest evolution of the Gilson PIPETMAN.
This pipette combines the PIPETMAN M single channel’s motorized functionality and ease of use with the PIPETMAN Neo Multichannel’s increased throughput capability. The new PIPETMAN M Multichannel was designed specifically for use with 96- and 384-well microplates and is available in 8 and 12 channels for 2 volume ranges: 1-20 µL and 20-200 µL.
Designed with both experienced and inexperienced users in mind, PIPETMAN M is intuitive, requires no learning curve to master, and simplifies daily work. Always operational, the PIPETMAN M Multichannel saves you time as it can be used while charging! Like the PIPETMAN Neo Multichannel, the PIPETMAN M Multichannel utilizes a Gilson Trident and unique tip spacer to distribute ejection forces evenly over each tip, reducing the tip ejection forces. The motorized piston virtually eliminates pipetting variability among users and the adjustable piston speed allows users to pipette denser samples with accuracy and confidence.
PIPETMAN M Multichannel offers a patented piston drive mechanism that guarantees equal pressure and consistent volume levels across all channels when aspirating and dispensing. Similar to the PIPETMAN M single channel, the PIPETMAN M Multichannel boasts four essential pipetting modes, reverse, mix, repetitive and pipetting, and presents the same high reproducibility, accuracy and precision as the original Gilson PIPETMAN.
Like other PIPETMAN families, the PIPETMAN M Multichannel features a unique tip holder design allowing a snug fit of most leading brands, so there is no need for a dedicated tip brand. Additional GLP features include a lockable volume, traceable serial number, color coded push-buttons for easy identification and service alert reminders. Gilson also offers a Power Carrousel for charging up to 5 pipettes as an accessory for both Single and Multichannel PIPETMAN M models.
