METTLER TOLEDO has released an across-the-board upgrade of its single- and multi-channel Pipet-Lite XLS+ manual and E4 XLS+ electronic pipettes, collectively referred to as the “XLS+ Pipette Family.”

With a redesigned liquid end, new Rainin Pipet-lite XLS+ manual pipettes combine cutting-edge technology and innovation to deliver exceptionally high performance with extraordinary comfort and control. The new “stiction-less” sealing system delivers a plunger action that is absolutely smooth from start to finish, allowing for complete pipetting control and ease. New corrosion-resistant plastic tip ejectors made of high quality PVDF polymer can be removed with a single-hand motion for easy cleaning. The complete liquid end – shaft, seal assembly/spring, and ejector – can also be autoclaved for easy sterilization.

With this launch, METTLER TOLEDO is also releasing a new 1200 µL XLS+ multichannel that is even more hand friendly and reliable. With a new liquid end that weighs 19% less than comparable XLS versions, up to 42% lower pipetting forces and 52% less tip eject force, multichannel pipetting is easier than ever. And by minimizing stiction (or “stickiness”), the new sealing system delivers unparalleled control for work that requires slow, careful pipetting. A new mechanical design also assures the highest performance, including industry-leading channel-to-channel consistency.

New software for the E4 XLS+ electronic pipette includes unique features that make it the most versatile and secure electronic pipette on the market. The new E4 XLS+ will be a top choice for any lab that values regulatory compliance and data security. For example:

  • The new Admin mode enhances GLP/GMP compliance by enabling pipette settings, protocols and service alarms to be password protected.
  • For convenience and security, the pipette menu can be configured (e.g., hiding unwanted modes, locking in settings, etc.) to be as simple or complex as users wish.
  • Multiple custom protocols can now be stored and quickly recalled with a simple joystick movement.

With the new Rainin XLS+ family of pipettes, METTLER TOLEDO continues its leadership and focus on making pipetting easier and more reliable for customers across the life sciences.
