Features and Benefits
Easy-to-use interface via Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet
Wi-Fi capability enables operation from outside the fume hood
— No need for an external computer!
Configured with a motorized elevator to position, raise, and lower plates (or reservoirs) to the desired pre-set height
Programmable serial dilution indexing by column (8, 16).
High performance 96 and 384 channel pipetting – ideal for low- or high-volume multichannel microplate pipetting
Interchangeable pipetting cores provide automated pipetting into all wells of a 96-well plate with the 96 core, or a 384-well plate with the 384 core
EZ-Load tip technology — no tools needed for a consistent seal
Automated pipetting eliminates repetitive motion injuries and the tedium associated with hand-held pipetting
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
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!

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.
Serial dilution by column
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
