S2 Pipette Applications
Serial dilution by column
The S-Pipette series multi-channel liquid handling pipettors bring automated liquid handling within reach of any lab that needs to routinely perform pipetting operations onto microplates.
Multi-channel liquid handling system. Interchangeable pipetting core.
Providing you with the flexibility to determine the configuration that best matches your application!
The S2 pipettor adds greater flexibility with automated X & Z positioning, automated plate sampling, and a removable WiFi enabled tablet.
Accessing the core
1 Remove lock screws on each side of the hood
2 Raise the hood carefully while still holding the hood, pull out the hood support rod and rest hood on support
1 Release core fasteners
2 Lift out the core in direction illustrated
3 Replace with 96 or 384 channel core
Control at your fingertips via Microsoft SurfaceTM Tablet. No external computer needed!
Intuitive Touch Screen
Pipettor + Head + Tips = Repeatable Results
The S2 pipettor, pipetting head, and tips in a variety of volumes is a triad that works together to help you get the best results.
EZ-Load = EZ-Change
The “pipette head” is separate from the
pipetting mechanism, allowing easy and
economical reconfiguration in the lab.
Changing heads only takes a few seconds –
easily reconfigure as needed!
For best pipetting results – consider pipette
tip selection along with the “pipette head”
that will be used.
EZ-Load Tip Technology
No tools required for a consistent seal!
S2-pipette uses the exclusive EZ-Load tips to simplify pipettor operation with disposable tips.
This patented technology from Apricot Design is the only system using disposable tips that do not
need to be “pressed on” with excessive downward force in order to create a reliable seal.
Load disposable tips into the head quickly and easily.
S2 Pipettor Features and Benefits
High-performance instrument – easily configured for a variety of applications
Automated pipetting into all wells of a 96-well plate with the 96 core, into all wells of a 384-well plate with the 384 core
12x faster than an 8-channel handheld pipettor – pipette into all 96 wells without having to replace tips 12 times
Pipette 24, 96 and 384 full plate
Serial dilution by column: 8, 16
Automated split level plate elevators for plate sampling – automatically raise or lower plate/reservoir to programmable height
Apricot EZ-Load tip technology to load disposable tips quickly and easily, without tools!
Control via easy to use interface – Microsoft SurfaceTM Tablet (WiFi-enabled)
2-, 3-, or 4-position shuttle with programmable serial dilution indexing
