The HandyStep® electronic from BRAND adds ergonomics and ease-of-use to repeat pipetting. It is the only electronic, motor-driven repeating pipette compatible with most standard syringe tips, including BRAND PD-Tip™ syringe tips, Eppendorf® Combi-Tips® and Combi-Tips Plus, Fisherbrand Dispenser Tips, and VWRbrand Combi-Syringes.
The HandyStep electronic utilizes a unique tip-recognition system that automatically identifies the new encoded BRAND PD-Tip™ syringe tips. The rugged mechanism "reads" the specially coded plungers and displays the nominal volume of the tip, the default dispensing volume, and the corresponding number of dispenses upon insertion.
Dispense Any Volume: Because of its broad tip compatibility, the HandyStep electronic can dispense any volume between 1.0µL and 50mL, including non-standard volumes such as 9.2µL, 25µL, 260µL, or 1250µL.
Three Pipetting Modes for Greater Productivity: The HandyStep electronic features three operational modes: Pipette, Dispense, and an ergonomic, intuitive Auto-Dispense mode that eliminates up to 97% of repetitive motion from repeat pipetting — No time-interval programming is needed!
Easy to Read Display: All aspects of operation are shown clearly on a large LCD screen with symbols, words, and and values. The screen features a counter to assist users with repetitive dispensing applications and is easy to read during both right- and left-handed operation.
Ergonomic Design: The HandyStep electronic operates with a relaxed grip that is comfortable in either hand. A subtle squeeze of the control button under your index finger actuates all aspirating and dispensing. The adjustable-speed motorized drive ensures fatigue-free pipetting, reduces the risk of repetitive motion injuries, and improves precision by eliminating variation in pipetting technique.
