WHEATON Acura® manual 826 XS Micropipette Improves Pipetting Precision Shorter shaft design enables easier handling and improved performance for the next generation in micropipetting

Introducing a new pipette designed to improve a researcher’s ability to aim, especially when working with smaller openings such as microtubes. WHEATON, the company that designs and delivers today’s most innovative solutions for the laboratory research, diagnostic packaging and specialty pharmaceuticals industries, introduces the new Socorex Acura® manual 826 XS micropipette line, designed specifically with researchers in mind.

The new Socorex Acura® manual 826 XS micropipette is intentionally shorter in design, featuring an optimized shape to size ratio that facilitates superior drivability of the pipette and significantly improves the precision of hand movement when pipetting into small vials and microtubes. The unique tightness lip seal reduces activation forces and provides for ultra-soft pipetting, greatly reducing hand-fatigue while working. Sharp plunger stops result in unsurpassed metrologic performances.

The new Acura® manual XS micropipette’s patented JustipTM height adjustment system permits for the optimal fitting and ejection of a wide selection of tips, and tip ejection becomes easier than ever due to the low-pressure activation button. Tedious calibration procedures become obsolete with its swift-set user calibration system and integrated key and locking mechanism. Autoclavable and fully assembled without recalibration, the Socorex Acura® manual 826 XS is the next generation of manual micropipetting.

Each micropipette is supplied with its individual QC certificate, attesting to the strict factory control and excellent performance values obtained. Manufactured in conformance with ISO 8655, IVD 98/79 EEC directives, Acura micropipettes are suitable for use in laboratories that observe international quality standards such as current Good Laboratory Practices (GLP).
