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

Repeatable Results

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 exclusive EZ-Load tips to simplify pipettor operation with disposable tips.
