Product News: New Repeating Pipette from BrandTech

25 Jul 2011

The BRAND® HandyStep® S next generation repeating pipette offers advanced features in a purely mechanical instrument. Upgrades include additional volume settings, enhanced ergonomics and improved corrosion resistance.

A convenient volume selection wheel allows easy one-handed volume adjustment. Concurrent with the introduction, two new sizes of PD-Tip™ syringe tips have been added to the portfolio. The addition of “half settings” to the five standard settings, combined with the now ten sizes of PD-Tip™ syringe tips provides 49 different volume settings. A convenient dual-sided tip selection chart assists in finding the right-sized tip for your desired volume.

A slim new design provides a comfortable grip for people of all hand sizes. A proven piston locking/filling lever is combined with a new tip ejection button for easy, contact-free removal of PD-Tip™ or other standard sized tips from third-party manufacturers. Instrument is light weight—only 108 grams (3.8 oz) through the use of innovative polymers that also enhance corrosion resistance.
