The robotics company Andrew Alliance and Sartorius announced the launch of the Pipette+ system, which is to provide both full traceability and improved repeatability in manual pipetting for life science laboratories.

Goettingen/Germany; Geneva/Switzerland — As much as half of all research funding in life sciences is used to repeat experiments, showing that lack of reproducibility in research is an ongoing challenge in the biopharmaceutical industry. A major cause of irreproducibility has been incorrect execution in liquid handling workflows. This collaboration between Andrew Alliance and Sartorius reflects both companies’ strategic investment in designing innovative pipetting solutions to improve reproducibility and simplify the complex and time-consuming workflows.

The Andrew Alliance Pipette+ system comprises several components that communicate with one another: electronic single and multichannel pipettes, an intelligent stand, and novel cloud-based software. The company co-developed the Pipette+ system with Sartorius, who is manufacturing the pipette hardware. The hardware is based on the latter’s Picus range of electronic pipettes. Using current-day Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, the pipettes communicate wirelessly with the stand by Bluetooth, and the computerized charging stand communicates with Cloud servers by either Wi-Fi or Ethernet. The pipette transmits data to the stand, such as possible errors, operator identity, and step-by-step actions taken by the operator, ensuring full traceability and improved repeatability.

Productive Liquid Handling with the Right Pipetting Solution

29/03/2018 - Life scientists, in particular, spend a great deal of time pipetting and required more productive tools. Integra turned its attention to driving innovation in this niche market, and offers novel solutions such as the Voyager adjustable tip spacing pipette, Grip Tips and the Assist Plus pipetting robot. read...

The software system uses the free, browser-based intelligent software environment, One Lab. This software allows intuitive protocol design and simplified protocol execution. For instance, the software can indicate which pipette is to be used at each step in an experiment, preset the required pipetting parameters, and eject tips at the appropriate time. Thus, users can complete protocols in a few clicks, the manufacturer claims.
