24 Oct 2023

The Life Science Group Sartorius recently introduced the Picus® 2 Electronic Pipette, the latest addition to its portfolio of electronic pipettes. With a combination of advanced connectivity and excellent performance, Picus 2 sets a new standard, enabling efficient, repeatable dispensing across biopharmaceutical and QC applications.

Pipettes play an integral role in the connected lab by enabling real-time data recording and integration with other equipment, ultimately enhancing productivity and data quality. Picus 2 electronic pipettes are equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, allowing seamless and flexible connection to any data management system. A unique offering with Picus 2 is the Sartorius Pipetting app for mobile devices, designed as a comprehensive solution for pipetting workflows.

"With Picus 2 we created a fully connected electronic pipette that transforms the pipetting experience for our users," said Joni Åke, Product Manager of Liquid Handling, Sartorius. "Thanks to its open connectivity, customers can either integrate Picus 2 with their existing system, or pair it with the companion Sartorius Pipetting app for access to our expansive library of configurable protocols, step-by-step guides, software updates, and other pipette management tools that simplify daily progress."

The Picus 2 feature user-friendly ergonomics, a wide range of pipetting modes, and precise electronic pipetting. The top-to-bottom ergonomic construction, with soft-touch operation and electronic tip ejection, not only improves overall comfort and efficiency, but also reduces the risk of injury. Large digital display and intuitive menus enable easy access to everyday operations, while secure password protection and programmable calibration reminders support compliance needs.

Picus 2 pipettes are available in single-channel models, covering a volume range of 0.2 μL to 10,000 μL, and in multichannel 2 | 2 models from 0.2 μL to 1,200 μL. Sartorius also supplies high-quality standard and specialized pipette tips that are validated for use with Picus 2 in a wide range of applications.
