epMotion® 5070

epMotion® 5070

With 4 worktable positions it is our most compact solution for accurate and reproducible automated pipetting of the epMotion family. This makes the epMotion 5070 a perfect match for any routine application such as serial dilutions, reagent distribution, sample transfer from tubes to plates, and sample normalization.

Product Information

The epMotion 5070’s pipetting technology is based on the classic Eppendorf piston-stroke pipettes; thus, protocols previously carried out manually are easily transferred to epMotion 5070. Its compatibility to a wide range of predefined consumables also allows established procedures to be maintained. Before every run the optical sensor checks that the required labware is correctly positioned on the deck and it also checks tip type and quantity available.

Optical Sensor - Verify set-up before the Run

The optical sensor feature is included in all epMotion 5070, 5073 and 5075 systems. It checks the worktable loading for tips, differentiating between volume types and with or without filter. For partly filled epT.I.P.S. Motion boxes the optical sensor can count the available tips. The scanning feature is also useful to verify the labware type that was defined in the method by the user is at the right deck position before the run. The optical sensor even checks liquid volumes in vessels for safe operation.

Ease of use and flexibility - EasyCon

The Eppendorf EasyCon tablet is optimized for simple and comfortable access to liquid handling automation. Its space saving size is designed especially for the smaller membersof the epMotion family, 5070 & 5073. It has a large color display and is operated by touch or mouse control. The key feature of the Eppendorf EasyCon tablet however is its flexibility with pre-installed software assistants for easy and fast application runs and the epBlue studio software for programming more complex liquid handling tasks.› Touchscreen or mouse control› Pre-installed software assistants› epBlue software› 4 × USB 2.0 ports for data transfer› Data backup› CSV and XML file exchange› No extra mains/power supply device needed
