Eppendorf’s Liquid Handling Solutions

Evaluating all your options for manual or automated liquid handling can be overwhelming. When considering an electronic pipette or workstation for your lab, it is important to understand the level of flexibility needed. Larger and more complex systems are typically used for workflow standardization, i.e. running the same protocol every time. For the freedom to either bulk dispense reagents, set up PCR reactions, or run a library prep method, a user-friendly, reliable liquid handler is a great choice.

Depending on the application, you might need an electronic pipette upfront for sample reformatting from tubes to plates and an automated liquid handler for downstream processes. Purification of DNA or RNA from samples such as tissue, cultured cells, blood, or bacteria is a common method used for applications such as next-generation sequencing (NGS), PCR, and cloning in cancer, genomics, and microbiology research areas.

In nucleic acid extraction steps, samples may be stored in vials or unique labware and need to be reformatted to 96-well or 384-well plates. The process of reformatting tubes to plates to prepare for purification steps can be time-consuming and monotonous. An electronic spanning pipette such as the Move It® pipette can help with such tasks. Additional sample preparation steps, including purification and library prep, can be labor-intensive, making an automated liquid handler such as the epMotion® a more efficient choice.

Move It® Pipette

Eppendorf’s new Move It® adjustable tip spacing pipette enables quick and easy sample transfers between different vessel formats providing a more efficient and safe pipetting solution The new adjustable tip spacing pipette Move It® accelerates and simplifies synchronous pipetting of a series of samples helping you save up to 70% on time when pipetting. The Move It pipette also features:

  • Adjustable tip spacing by turning the adjustment knob
  • A tubeless system that can be autoclaved, is tangle-resistant, and has a stable air-cushion temperature
  • Fast and easy format change that minimizes transfer time

Automated epMotion® Liquid Handler

Eppendorf offers a wide range of liquid handling solutions from the epMotion® 96 to fully automated workstations such as the epMotion® 5075. With simple step by step application programming and installation, the epMotion® is your automated solution for trusted pipetting accuracy and precision that features:

  • 1 channel and 8 channel pipetting tools with a range of 200 nL to 1000 µL
  • Optical sensor for labware, tips and liquid detection
  • Compatible with 0.2 µL to 50 mL tubes, 96 well and 384 well plates
  • CleanCap option with UV lamp for decontamination and HEPA filter for clean air inside. Optional for epMotion® 5073 & 5075 version


epMotion® 96

The epMotion® 96 is an easy to use bench top system for high precision pipetting in 96- and 384-well plates. It overcomes the limits of manual multichannel pipetting with its ergonomic design and intuitive controls. epMotion® 96 is a great tool for anyone who needs fast and precise liquid handling in 96- or 384-well formats.

epMotion® 5070

Our smallest member of the epMotion® family is the most compact solution for accurate and reproducible automated pipetting. 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.

epMotion® 5073

These automated pipetting systems are uniquely tailored for PCR setup and nucleic acid purification, yet retain the flexibility that allows their use as open platforms for diverse automated liquid handling applications. They automate and simplify what are traditionally complex, labor intensive pipetting tasks, saving time and improving the reliability and reproducibility of results.

epMotion® 5075

This epMotion® configuration is the ideal solution for diverse liquid handling demands. It offers the same outstanding accuracy and precision as epMotion® 5070 & 5073. The available options make the 5075 an excellent tool for applications such as next generation sequencing, real-time PCR set-up, magnetic bead based purification, cell based assays or any routine pipetting tasks.
