Recommended for laboratories with large pipetting demands, electronic pipettes like the A&D MPA series can perform pipetting tasks for time sensitive samples while ensuring high-accuracy and precision. Whether working on PCR, protein assays, enzyme activity or preparing solutions, these electronic pipettes can lower chances of skewed pipetting results and can increase lab productivity. Compared to using manual pipettes or even automated pipetting systems, a variable volume, single channel, electronic pipette like the A&D Weighing MPA-20 is an economical alternative if you generally measure and transfer relatively small amounts of liquids, enhancing efficiency of laboratories and at the same time reducing user-related errors.
How much media can the single channel, variable volume, A&D MPA-20 lab pipette dispense?
The AND MPA20 electronic pipette can transfer liquid samples with volumes ranging between 2 - 20 uL.
I run a wide range of pipetting tasks involving small amounts of liquids on a daily basis, is the MPA-20 pipette a good electronic pipette to get?
Yes since the A&D MPA-20 electronic single-channel pipette is convenient to use, lightweight, and durable, perfect for meeting everyday pipetting tasks of scientific labs, universities, and even commercial facilities.
Is the A&D MPA-20 a fixed volume pipette or a variable volume pipette?
The A&D MPA-20 single channel pipette is designed to provide adjustable volumes, offering flexibility to users and their applications.

Compared to other electronic, single channel, variable volume pipettes, how much accuracy can the A&D MPA-20 provide?
Achieve true pipetting values and deliver equal volumes of liquids with the A&D MPA-20 pipette as it offers an accuracy of 4.0/2.0 (%/uL).
How much precision does the A&D MPA-20 laboratory pipette offer?
Get consistent pipetting and close pipetting results with the A&D MPA-20 as it provides repeatability of 2.5/2.0 (%/uL).
Does the A&D MPA-20 electronic pipette come with multiple pipetting modes?
Yes, the AND MPA20 presents different modes to help reduce user-stress and improve user productivity. Confidently transport and dispense liquid samples with the following:
AUTO mode for standard automatic aspiration and dispensing
Multiple Dispensing mode (MD) for dividing an aspirated volume into multiple dispensings of a lower volume
Mixing mode (MIX) that allows users to set aspirating-dispensing cycles to mix and homogenize samples
Reverse Operation function that is best for when working with viscous samples
Is the A&D MPA-20 single channel electronic pipette better than large-volume mechanical pipettes?
Yes, the AND Weighing MAP-20 pipette is engineered with an electronic control for reliable accuracy. This ensures all dispensed sample quantities do not vary depending on user or user pipetting motion applied. Unlike manual pipettes, these electronic MPA pipettes come with better ergonomics for pain-free operations thus reducing user stress. Aside from presenting easy calibration/adjustment by volume (mL) or by weight (mg) to make sure any error caused by differences in tips used are corrected, A&D MPA pipettes are also considered cost-effective since these can also replace pipette controllers in various applications.
Any other features that would make me want to purchase the A&D MPA-20 single channel pipette?
The AND MPA-20 is feature-packed with its 9 program storage for fast recalls of operations and dispensing volume combinations. It is also built with an audio alert that lets users know when an operation has started. Designed with padding on all four corners of the pipette head and with a long curved finger hook for solid grip, the MPA laboratory pipette ensures safety from impacts. Through its electronic control, instances of unnecessary or excessive sample suctions are avoided.
Is the A&D MPA-20 pipette easy to clean and maintain?
Yes as it is autoclavable. The lower part of the AND MPA20 single channel pipette including the piston and tip holder can be quickly separated for sterilization as well as replacement purposes.

A&D MPA Pipettes - How the Multiple Dispensing (MD) Mode Works
Watch a complete demo on how users can switch to the MD mode for efficient and consistent delivery of samples into microplates and other vessels. Learn how to set volume for each dispensal as well as how to set number of dispensings to be completed.
Industry leading price/performance ratio
True alternative to mechanical pipettes - for nearly the same cost!
Eliminate repetitive thumb strain by using light keystrokes with the index finger
Dispense by volume (μL), or weight (mg)
Easy calibration (adjustment) by yourself – User CAL function*
Frequent, outsourced pipette calibration services can be expensive and impractical. With the MPA, you can ensure pipette accuracy by performing calibration at your own facility when needed, increasing the precision of your analyses.
This function also corrects error due to differences in tip characteristics, therefore assuring accurate pipetting with tips manufactured by other companies.
Calibration and display in a unit of weight (mg)*
The MPA Series enables you to calibrate and display the pipetting amount based on weight (mg) as well as volume(µL).
This makes it easier for you to 1) handle liquids that need to be managed by weight, such as a diluted solution of a solid or powder; and 2) control more precisely the dispensing amounts of high-viscosity liquids, which are prone to error with normal volume calibration.
Increased resistance to impacts from falls
One of the most common repairs of electronic pipettes is for a broken LCD display due to drops and falls. With padding on the four corners of the head*, the LCD panel of the MPAis designed to be protected from impacts from falls.
User-friendly industrial design
The movement of the trigger can be controlled with the ball of the index finger instead of the thumb while maintaining all fingers in a natural, effortless grip.
