The Life Science Group Sartorius introduces the Picus® 2 Electronic Pipette, the latest addition to its portfolio of electronic pipettes. With a combination of advanced connectivity and excellent performance, Picus® 2 sets a new standard, enabling efficient, repeatable dispensing across biopharmaceutical and QC applications.
Pipettes play an integral role in the connected lab by enabling real-time data recording and integration with other equipment, ultimately enhancing productivity and data quality. Picus® 2 electronic pipettes are equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, allowing seamless and flexible connection to any data management system. A unique offering with Picus® 2 is the Sartorius Pipetting app for mobile devices, thoughtfully designed as a comprehensive solution for pipetting workflows.
"With Picus® 2 we created a fully connected electronic pipette that transforms the pipetting experience for our users," said Joni Åke, Product Manager of Liquid Handling, Sartorius. "Thanks to its open connectivity, customers can either integrate Picus® 2 with their existing system, or pair it with the companion Sartorius Pipetting app for access to our expansive library of configurable protocols, step-by-step guides, software updates, and other pipette management tools that simplify daily progress."
Building on the success of its predecessors, Picus® 2 features its trademark unbeatable ergonomics, wide range of pipetting modes, and precise electronic pipetting. The top-to-bottom ergonomic construction, with soft-touch operation and electronic tip ejection, not only improves overall comfort and efficiency, but also reduces the risk of injury. Large digital display and intuitive menus enable easy access to everyday operations, while secure password protection and programmable calibration reminders support compliance needs.
"We designed Picus® 2 for maximum usability and comfort, two critical factors for getting reliable pipetting results,” said Sandra Söderholm, Application Development Scientist for Lab Essentials, Sartorius. “Despite its ability to perform complex functions, Picus® 2 is as easy to operate as a mechanical pipette. Picus® pipettes are also synonymous with exceptional ergonomics, which promotes effortless, error-free pipetting. The ergonomic design, ease of use, and flexible connectivity work together to ensure accuracy and reproducibility in liquid handling workflows.”
The launch of Picus® 2 further establishes Sartorius as a leading supplier of premier lab essentials that streamline processes and accelerate research in the modern, connected laboratory. Picus® 2 pipettes are available in single-channel models, covering a volume range of 0.2 μL to 10,000 μL, and in multichannel 2 | 2 models from 0.2 μL to 1,200 μL.
