Product News: Acura® electro, Electronic Micropipettes - New Model Release from Socorex

19 Jul 2013


The up-graded Acura® electro line is offering additional features and makes electronic pipetting more versatile, simpler and safer than ever.

Extended range includes seven micro models (0.1 to 1000 µL), three macropipettes (0.1 - 10 mL) and eight multichannel instruments (0.1 to 350 µL). Acura® electro 926 micro models are supplied with a reduced shaft length which care for superior driveability when working in small, narrow tubes.

Intuitive control software avoids any complicated programming steps. Only 4 keys provide quick access to Forward - Reverse - Stepper - Dilute - Tactile and Mixing working modes. The new Tactile mode enables start and stop monitoring of aspiration and distribution, simplifies slow speed gel loading and makes titration possible using a micropipette.

Working ergonomics and hand comfort lead to outstanding pipetting results. Display information is reversible for right or left side reading. Efficient tip ejection obtained with a patented height adjustable mechanism. NiMH battery pack is exchangeable and / or charged right-away. Battery charge level clearly visible on display. Automatic energy saving stand-by when pipette remains unused.

Autoclavable at 121°C, each of the 27 different volumetric modules (lower assembly) is interchangeable on one control unit (upper assembly). Instrument calibration over two or three points is easily performed on the keyboard.

Each Acura® electro is supplied either as initial package or pipette alone. An initial package contains one electronic pipette, QC certificate, operating instructions, charging stand, power supply, additional battery pack and Qualitips® pipette tips samples. It is recommended when purchasing an Acura® electro for the first time. All charging accessories are included and user may start working right away.

Thereafter, when purchase of additional Acura® electro pipettes become necessary, pipette alone at lower price is recommended. It can then be charged on existing stand. This flexibility makes the Socorex instruments attractive to all budgets.

Instruments conform to CE safety guidelines, to EN ISO 8655 and other international standard requirements. Electronic parts free of hazardous substances (RoHS). Two-year warranty.
