Acura® manual and Acura® manual XS digital reading micropipettes
Acura® manual are precision pipettes combining high-tech materials with exceptional, user friendly ergonomics. There is a choice between 825 model, the classic one for all applications and 826 XS micropipette specially dedicated to research. Both lines bring much more than superior performance and make pipetting safe and comfortable.
I purchased a total of 32 Socorex Acura manual pipettes through a pipette exchange program from Wheaton for use in two biology laboratory courses I teach at The Catholic University of America. All representatives were very courteous and met my multiple demands to ensure I had the correct set of pipettes for my students and my teaching assistants with customized color-coded caps for each pipette. In addition to the pipettes, I also purchased universal pipette stands and universal pipette tips/boxes, which all worked perfectly with the old pipettes we had and the new ones we purchased. Our students used to shuffle through different brands of pipettes and made lots of mistakes in volumetric adjustment, tip selection, and pipetting. Furthermore, most pipettes were old and/or lost their calibration quickly, resulting in experimental variation between student groups. With the new pipettes, all students now use the same brand of pipettes and are able to perform their lab tasks more efficiently and accurately. In addition, these pipettes can be calibrated in house and come with a 3-year warranty. I am very pleased with our purchase and the timely service Wheaton provided. I recommend their products to all research and teaching labs.
