Electronic and manual pipettes from INTEGRA Biosciences are designed to improve ergonomic pipetting in the lab, helping users avoid repetitive strain injuries (RSIs).
Prolonged manual pipetting puts users at risk of developing hand, neck and shoulder injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, tenosynovitis, and tennis elbow. INTEGRA supplies a wide range of electronic and manual pipettes suited to various applications, all designed to reduce the risk of RSI and generally improve lab workers’ wellbeing and productivity.
The company’s ergonomic pipette range includes:
EVOLVE manual pipettes – lightweight with low plunger force, offering three separate dials for quick volume changes to avoid the typical approach of twisting the plunger
VIAFLO/VOYAGER electronic pipettes – one-button plunger control and an intuitive thumbwheel design that reduces the risk of a thumb injury
ASSIST and ASSIST PLUS pipetting robots – affordable automation of repetitive manual tasks to eradicate ergonomic problems altogether
VIAFLO 96/384 electronic pipettes – fill/mix an entire plate at a time to dramatically reduce the time spent pipetting, with a computer-controlled plunger and electronic tip loading and ejection
GripTip pipette tips – snap effortlessly onto the pipette with no hammering on required, providing the lowest ejection forces on the market.
