Great instrument it made my lablife much easier and I wouldn't return to the old time.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Satandards and samples preparation for Chromatographyre

"In comparison to glass pipets ans what I will call micropipets it increased the ease to use, the quality of the results (eg: better r² of the standard curves) and cost of use is pretty low as the "combitips" are easy to rince with barly no carry over."

Good ergonomics!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:RNA extraction

"I've been using Eppendorf Repeater M4 for the RNA isolation process. The washing step doesn't need to get very accurate volume, therefore using Eppendorf repeater M4 is the best pipette for this process. It is very light so it is a good ergonomic tool. You can adjust the volume from 1 ul to 10 ml, all you need is to use the correct tips."

Pretty accurate, very ergonomic.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Assay Development

"I use the Repeater M4 1ul-10 ml to dispense and aliquot reagents. By using different eppendorf tips, you can dispense different volumes. The repeater M4 is light, does not need to be charged, and ergonomic."

Rating: 3.0

  • Application Area:reagent addition

"I much prefer the Eppendorf Repeater Plus. The M4 is hard to remove the Combitips, when attaching the Combitips, the sensor after a few weeks kept giving error message. I will not use one of these again."

"What a great pipette! It is easy to use, ergonomic and with the exchange, the price was right. Only issue was that our existing large stock of tips became obsolete. Reps were great and gave us complementary new tips. Nice work!"

The M4 is as easy to use as its predecessor, the Multipette Plus. It is more comfortable in my hand, and the updated tip ejection system is very easy to use.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Dispensing liquids; use in assays

"The M4 is as easy to use as its predecessor, the Multipette Plus (have both in my laboratory). It is more comfortable in my hand, and the updated tip ejection system is very easy to use. Robust, reliable, can't report on the after-sales care, as haven't yet had any problems which would require me to use it!"

  • Application Area:Addition Of Reagents To Multiple Reaction Vessels.

"I do not feel that this instrument is an improvement over the Eppendorf Repeater Plus, which it replaced. I find that the 'slim' design is not compatible to the average hand. When I hold the M4 properly, my fingertips will obstruct the filling lever when dispensing. The after-sales care is excellent: Two of the M4 instruments that we purchased on the trade in program needed to be replaced because of malfunction within weeks of purchase, leading me to question the quality of construction of the instrument. Given a choice, I would stay with the Repeater Plus!"

  • Application Area:Laboratory

"The M4 has so far lived up to the expectations. The new model is missing a finger lever that provides ergonomic balance when sucking up liquid. It was a bit awkward to retrain myself on the new model, but beyond that small issue, the new model works in nearly the same way as the old model. A great option for a small lab with few but diverse pipette needs."

"I like the new eject feature on this model. It feels like a sturdier unit than before. I also appreciated the trade-in discount. Yes, I would recommend it to a colleague. I wish that I would have understood that the type of tips changed from the previous version. I had to order new combitips which delayed my use of the instrument. And now, what do I do about all of the discontinued tips that I have stashed away? "

  • Application Area:Chemical Additions

"Ease of use rating: The M4 is great when having to make repetitive additions. I prefer to use it over a regular pipette. I love it. After Sales service rating: I wasn't sure how to rate this since we haven't required any after sales service. Value for Money rating: If you have to make repeat additions of the same chemical it saves time and reduces repetitive stress on the fingers, hands and wrist which is priceless. I would definitely recommend this product. "

  • Application Area:Molecular Biology

"Repeater M4 is a neat unit for dispensing liquid to set up real-time PCR plates in a basic research lab setting. The cost for tips is reasonable considering the benefit of decreasing work-related stress to hands and wrists. "

Review date: 09 Jul 2014 | Multipette® M4/Repeater® M4
The Multipette®/Repeater® M4 is a hand-held serial pipetting instrument, designed to minimize the time and effort required for precise and highly accurate repeat dispensing tasks.

The Multipette®/Repeater® M4 works with nine sizes of Eppendorf Combitips advanced®. A built-in sensor detects the Combitips automatically, showing the tip volume on an easy to read display and eliminating the need for manual volume calculations. In addition, the new central Combitip ejector supports one-handed operation for contact-free tip ejection that avoids any risk of contamination.
 
Since there are 20 volume settings for each of the nine Combitips, the Multipette®/Repeater® M4 can dispense volumes from 1 µL to 10 mL and completes as many as 100 operations without refill. This is significantly more than similar hand held dispensers on the market. An integral step counter displays the number of steps executed, allowing the user to resume with confidence should there be any interruption while dispensing.

With the ability to conduct a maximum of 100 dispensing actions accurately and precisely, the Multipette®/Repeater® M4 is ideal for applications involving 96-well plates, for example. Based on the positive displacement principle it also eases the handling of viscous or volatile liquids and lowers the risk of contaminating the Multipette itself when dealing with radioactive, toxic or other hazardous materials. Unlike air cushioned pipettes, the Multipette®/Repeater® M4 allows accurate and precise dispensing of difficult to handle viscous solutions as well as liquids with high vapor pressure.

Repetitive dispensing procedures, such as those required in plate filling, aliquoting and kit usage, can be very time consuming, with ample opportunity for errors and inconsistencies. The new Multipette®/Repeater® M4 provides a new, highly efficient solution for quick and safe dispensing that laboratories can rely on.

Multipette®/Repeater® M4 Features:

Step counter - Displays the number of executed dispensing steps
Ergonomically shaped operating lever - Dispenses the liquid and ejects the Combitip advanced®
Ergonomically shaped filling lever - For filling and emptying the Combitip advanced®
Volume selection dial - 20 different volume settings for every Combitip size; Easy to reach and adjust using your thumb
Hand rest - Supports a relaxed hand position and ease of use
Motion Sensor - Multipette switches off when not in use, and back on with minimal movements to save power and time
Combitip sensor - Automatic Combitip recognition and volume display
 
Applications:

• Repetitive Dispensing of volumes in long series such as tube or plate filling, aliquoting reagents and kit usage
• Contamination-free dispensing of toxic, radioactive and or other hazardous liquids
• Precise and accurate dispensing of viscous solutions (e.g. glycerol) or liquids with high vapor pressure (e.g. ethanol)
