Sartorius Picus & Picus NxT

The Pipette For Your Regulated Lab


Sartorius electronic pipettes are ideal tools to accompany you in daily, repetitive liquid handling in laboratories, where the accuracy of your results, speed and ergonomics are mission-critical. Their fully electronic control guarantees consistent, user-independent results, and their lightweight, ergonomic design gives you total convenience. With their multiple pipetting modes, you may perform our liquid handling tasks faster than with mechanical pipettes, and with their wide volume ranges, the Sartorius electronic pipettes often cover the volume range of two mechanical pipettes reducing the amount of pipettes you need.

Picus® and Picus® NxT - Highly Sophistecated and Ergonomic

Picus® NxT and Picus® are Sartorius’ user-friendliest and most sophisticated electronic pipettes. Exceptionally compact and lightweight, these pipettes have been specially designed to ease your daily workload and protect you from repetitive strain injury (RSI).

The unique, multi-purpose adjustment wheel enables fast one-handed operation. A conveniently located operating button and one-touch, feather-light electronic tip ejection help minimize muscle strain during pipetting. The comfortable design of the handle and the finger hook enables the pipette to rest lightly in your hand, without requiring you to grip the pipette tightly. The electronic brake stops piston movement rapidly and accurately, ensuring high precision, which is especially advantageous in serial dispensing. The unique microwell plate tracker guides you to pipette into the correct wells.

• Uniquely lightweight and compact design maximizes user convenience
• Superior technology ensures highly accurate and repeatable results
• Intuitive user interface in a choice of language options for total ease of use
• Advanced reliability and safety with Picus® NxT for highly regulated environments
