PLT unit – Pipette Leak Testing Unit!

Monitoring of measuring instruments according to ISO 8655 prescribes that air-displacement pipettes have to be checked at regular intervals. However, a calibration certificate only reflects the results at the time of testing. The time between these calibrations is crucial, since leaks can occur at any time. Well over 80% of pipettes sent in for repair have leaks and are outside their volume tolerances, even if they don’t drip. Daily pipette checks with the PLT unit can provide a safeguard during these periods. Even the smallest leaks are detected! This arises from damage either to the seals, pistons or tip cones.

Special Features:

  • Limit values for the commercially available single- and multichannel pipettes in the volume range from 1 µl to 10 ml are pre-programmed
  • Testing with and without tips, dynamic or static
  • Test results in seconds
