INTEGRA’s electronic pipettes are designed to meet the demands of the modern laboratory environment, offering features to streamline everyday pipetting activities and simplify working to good laboratory practice (GLP).
Whilst choice of pipette brand may not be the first consideration when designing laboratory workflows, choosing the right pipette can make it much easier to achieve consistent results.
Regular calibration is essential for any pipette, so the company makes it easy to keep track of schedules with built-in audiovisual alarms. And if recalibration is required, all INTEGRA electronic pipettes – including the VIAFLO, VOYAGER and VIAFLO 96/384 ranges - can automatically calculate the required calibration factor adjustments – users need only input the results of gravimetric calibration checks.
Consistency is another key aspect of GLP, ensuring that the same protocol is followed every time, by every user. With INTEGRA pipettes, users can pre-program standard functions – such as repeat dispensing and serial dilutions – or create custom programs, either directly on the pipette or using the PC-based VIALINK software. This effectively allows SOPs to be built directly into the pipette. Aspects of the pipette firmware can be password protected to ensure additional security doesn’t slow down daily tasks.
