We are highlighting our new product the Assist Plus.
What makes this product different from anything else on the market?
The Assist Plus is extremely flexible, small and very affordable. The Assist Plus, has adjustable tip spacing, and can do reformatting applications with multiple channels, which is very unique for its price and size segment. Users can click in Intergra pipettes and protocols are automatically formed.
Typical applications are tube to plate and plate to plate transfers and serial dilutions.
What makes Integra a leader in the field?
We have always had very unique and innovative instruments. We have a special tip interface, so our tips don’t leak or fall off. Our pipettes also have a unique touch user interface that you won't find in the industry.
Then, of course, our 96-channel handheld Pipette is user controlled and guided. This means that users don’t have to provide pre-programmed positions for all their plates. It's just a very, user friendly, unique approach, which is easy for customers use with minimal training.
Which industries will benefit from this product?
I would say the whole Life Sciences Industry. We have customers mostly in research, but that can be bio-tech, pharma, academia or diagnostics. All life science industries use our pipettes.
