  S-Pipette Features and Benefits
  • Multi-channel liquid handling system with an interchangeable pipetting core.
  • Pipette into all wells of 96-well plate with S-Pipette 96 core, or 384-well plate with S-Pipette 384 core.
  • More than 12x faster than an 8-channel handheld pipettor.
    – Pipette into all 96 wells without having to replace tips 12 times!
  • Adjustable split level plate elevators for individual sampling using multiple plates and a variety of SBS standard labware.
  • EZ-Load tip technology to load disposable tips quickly and easily, without tools!
  • Clamp pipetting head with simple levers.
  • Control via easy to use interfaces: touch screen, quick access keys.
  • Small footprint maximizes bench space and fits suitable hoods.

  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
3 Still holding the hood, pull out the hood support rod and rest hood on support

Repeatable Results

The S-Pipette + pipetting head + tips (in a variety of volumes)
= The workflow to help you get repeatable 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!
S-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.
