Goodbye loose and falling tips! Hello beautiful ELISAs!
Application Area: ELISA
"In the past, pipetting samples for ELISAs has been stressful because the tips keep falling off and in the end, there is sometimes an outlier in some of the sample duplicates/triplicates or the plate did not develop as evenly as it should have because in the middle of adding colorimetric substrate, the tips would fall off--ugh! But not with the 8-channel manual EVOLVE pipette. I actually enjoy doing ELISAs now because they always come out beautifully, I do not waste time readjusting lose pipet tips, and my thumb is not sore from all the pipette. Thank you, Integra, for making my life less stressful and science more enjoyable!"

Easy to handle and reliable.

"This item is easy to use and also reliable. Some multichannel pipets give different volume among tips, but so far we have not seen such a thing."
Set volumes fast!
The EVOLVE manual pipette features three adjustable dials to rapidly set volumes. This revolutionary approach reduces repetitive stress injuries and allows users to set volumes in a fraction of the time it takes with a traditional manual pipette.
GripTip pipette tips that will never fall off
EVOLVE pipettes together with INTEGRA’s wide range of GripTips form a perfect pipetting system. GripTips snap into place with minimal tip loading effort, providing a secure connection. GripTips never fall off and are perfectly aligned, ensuring precise touch offs of fluids resulting in superior pipetting performance.
Two differently sized plunger springs allow users to customize the force needed to depress the plunger to their preference. The controlled plunger spring option allows users to slow the aspiration and dispense speeds resulting in improved pipetting technique and results. The controlled plunger spring is compatible with all single channel EVOLVE pipettes except the 5 ml model. Changing the spring is completed in seconds. The ultra lightweight, well balanced design of the pipettes provides unsurpassed ergonomics even during prolonged pipetting sessions.
EVOLVE pipettes are available as single, 8,12 and 16 channel models.
Unlike traditional pipettes which utilize a single rotating plunger to set volumes, EVOLVE features one dial for setting each of three volume digits. This is the same convenient method used to unlock three dial combination locks.
This revolutionary approach allows users to set volumes more than ten times faster than standard manual pipettes. Simply depress and twist the plunger to unlock the quick set volume dials. Once unlocked, freely adjust the three dials to rapidly set the desired volume. Volumes set on traditional manual pipettes can often change while pipetting due to unintentional plunger turns.
The EVOLVE Quick Set Dial design prevents inadvertent volume drift due to plunger movements while pipetting.
Do your pipette tips ever loosen, leak or fall off? This is a common issue in laboratories, caused by the use of universal pipette tips. Such tips require “hammering on” which stretches the shape of the pipette tip rim. The stretched pipette tip rim immediately starts moving back to its original shape, away from the tip cone. This can cause leaking, misaligned tips and even pipette tips that completely fall off the pipette!
This will never happen with any EVOLVE pipette / GripTip combination. Featuring a low attachment force and a low ejection force, GripTips effortlessly snap onto the tip fittings and are easily ejected. Also, GripTips feature a high lateral resistance once attached to the EVOLVE pipettes. This means GripTips are always firmly attached and perfectly aligned, regardless of how many side well touch offs are performed. You no longer have to hammer your pipette tips on or worry about pipette tips falling off!

Storing pipettes upright is important to prevent liquid or debris from entering the tip fitting. Proper storage also extends the life of a pipette.
The INTEGRA linear stand is ideal for hanging EVOLVE pipettes up off the lab bench. Up to twelve manual pipettes can be placed on a linear stand. EVOLVE shelf hooks are also available for proper storage.
