INTEGRA announces the VIAFLO ASSIST - an innovative new device that, in combination with a VIAFLO II electronic handheld pipette, enables the pipette’s protocols to be performed automatically. This unique new product from INTEGRA reduces the need for traditional handheld pipetting to a minimum, relieving lab personnel from activities that may cause repetitive stress injuries. Lipofectamine® 3000 demonstrates the highest transfection efficiency in the broadest spectrum of cell types with improved cell viability and reproducibility. Eppendorf has launched five new models to its epMotion range of automated pipetting systems. Designed for effective, automated liquid handling applications, epMotion 5075 systems provide a precise, accurate alternative to time-consuming manual pipetting and liquid handling tasks. The Titrette® is the new generation of bottletop burette from BRAND.
