Socorex Introduction

Welcome to Socorex® - a world of expertise in precision liquid handling. Wheaton is exclusive agent in the U.S. for Socorex products used in the research or scientific laboratory for over 20 years. Socorex, founded in the late 1940s by two young watchmakers, manufactures a wide variety of high precision instruments used for reliably measuring, dosing, transferring, dispensing and injecting liquids in a large number of laboratory applications.

Millions of Acura® and Calibra® pipettes and other famous Socorex instruments are in use throughout the world. Socorex, which is based in Lausanne, Switzerland, is a well-known and trusted brand internationally. Its U.S. presence is growing every year as laboratory personnel demand the most precise, ergonomic and easy to use liquid handling instruments.

What new instruments are included in this offering? Socorex has recently expanded its state of the art micropipettes. The extra sharp Acura manual XS, mainly intended for research laboratories, represents a significant advance in metrology.
