Why the S3 Pipettor?
  • Intuitive/Accurate Control Interface –Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet – No external computer needed!
  • Automated X, Y, Z positioning for workflow flexibility
  • Programmable serial dilution indexing by row (12, 24) and column (8, 16)
  • Plate to plate pipetting
  • Interchangeable cores for precise 96 and 384 channel pipetting
  • EZ-Load Tip Technology to simplify pipettor operation

Features and Benefits
  • S3 control is at your fingertips with an easy-to-use interface via Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet. The tablet’s Wi-Fi capability enables the operation of S3 from outside the fume hood – no external computer is needed!
  • S3 is configured with a motorized elevator that positions, raises and lowers plates (or reservoirs) to the desired pre-set height.
  • Programmable serial dilution indexing by row (12, 24) and column (8, 16).
  • S3 offers high performance 96 and 384 channel pipetting that is ideal for low- or high-volume multichannel microplate pipetting.
  • The interchangeable pipetting cores provide automated pipetting into all wells of a 96-well plate with the 96 core, or into all wells of a 384-well plate with the 384 core. Automated pipetting eliminates the tedium and potential repetitive motion injuries associated with hand-held pipetting.
  • S3 pipettor, pipetting head, and EZ-Load tips form a triad to help you get the best results. Changing the pipette head takes just a few seconds. Plus, it’s quick and easy to load the EZ-Load disposable tips — no tools are needed for a consistent seal.

Interchangeable Pipetting Core

Precise 96 and 384 channel pipetting. Choose a configuration that best matches your applications.


  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

Repeatable Results

Pipettor + Head + Tips = Repeatable Results
The S3 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!
S3 Pipettor uses exclusive EZ-Load tips to simplify pipettor operation with disposable tips.

  Applications
  • Plate replication
  • Plate reformatting
  • Reagent addition
  • Compound addition
  • Serial dilution by row and column

  Options
  • 96-channel volume: 0.5 –125μL, 1–500μL, or 10 –1000μL
  • 384-channel volume: 0.5 –125μL
  • 3 position shuttle available
  • Disposable tip heads with 8,16, 96 or 384 channels for Apricot EZ-Load high volume 250/500/1000μL tips or EZ-Load 15/50/125μL tips

  High performance automated pipetting for:
  • Labs that routinely perform low- or high-volume multichannel microplate pipetting.
  • Labs with limited bench space, so a compact easy-to-use system augments the current workflow.
  • Labs with large multifunctional liquid handling platforms, in situations where a faster, easier system is needed for pipetting
  • operations (without extensive training and method programming).

Apricot Designs is dedicated to making lab work more accurate, more precise, more efficient and thus, more productive
