Product Features

It is a good feeling to know you are doing the right thing – to know you are working with one of the most advanced pipettes in the world. A spring loaded tip cone, a secondary calibration option, an improved volume display – and all that in an ultra light, fully autoclavable pipette: That is the Eppendorf Research plus pipette.


Your next experiment will need new pipetting schemes. Your new laboratory might have different sources of contamination. Your new pipette should offer all the flexibility you need. Calibrate your Research plus to your needs, autoclave the entire pipette or only the lower part. Choose among single channel, multi channel and fix-volume pipettes in different sizes.


Feel the difference in weight, pipetting forces and the spring loaded tip cone. The more strain you experience, the less energy you have. And because energy is a very precious and exhaustible resource, we try to use it as efficiently as possible. Thus the Eppendorf Research plus has been developed within the strict criteria of the Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept®. PhysioCare Concept® stands for ultimate durability, intuitive operation and above all for perfect balance and minimal user exertion.
