Bangalore: Eppendorf, a leading life science company that develops and sells instruments, consumables and services, launched a Mobile Pipette Calibration facility in Chennai. This was launched to facilitate easier calibration of the pipettes. As inaugural offer, the calibration will be done for variable volume pipettes at $13.65 (Rs750) per pipette.
The company noted that customers, who intend to calibrate their pipettes can contact Eppendorf's Chennai office in order to avail the service. Once the calibration is done, the certificate will be issued instantly. No hassles will be faced by the consumers during the process and they will not have to wait for days in order to get the report.
Eppendorf also highlighted that pipette calibration is a very important part of any laboratory's routine. To ensure that pipettes are always working according to expectations is particularly important when work is being done according to defined regimes or work protocols. This facility is created keeping in mind small laboratories that do not have enough pipettes or cannot wait longer to get their pipettes calibrated. Even if the customer has only few pipettes, they can call the company's vehicle for getting their pipettes calibrated.
Eppendorf's product range includes pipettes and automated pipetting systems, dispensers, centrifuges, mixers, spectrometers, and DNA amplification equipment as well as ultra-low temperature freezers, fermentors, bioreactors, CO2 incubators, shakers, and cell manipulation systems. Associated consumables like pipette tips, test tubes, microtiter plates, and disposable bioreactors complement the instruments for highest quality workflow solutions.
Eppendorf products are most broadly used in academic and commercial research laboratories, in various domains ranging from pharmaceutical and biotechnological to chemical and food industries. They are also used at clinical and environmental analysis laboratories, forensics, and at industrial laboratories, performing process analysis, production and quality assurance.
