Sartorius Presents New Premium Mechanical Pipette Tacta

publication date: Mar 16, 2016
author/source: Sartorius Group

Responding to the needs of users in the laboratories, Sartorius presents a new range of mechanical pipettes with a perfectly balanced design offering reliability, accuracy and comfortable use.

Tacta pipettesNow available from Sartorius, the Tacta range of premium mechanical pipettes. Tacta has perfectly balanced design that it is easy, safe and comfortable to use. Tacta meets the most demanding pipetting requirements, delivering consistent and accurate results time after time. Manufactured from carefully selected materials, each component is designed to meet the highest standards of comfort and reliability. The new pipettes are available in a range of volumes from 0.1 to 10,000 µl in single channel models, and from 0.5 to 300 µl in multichannel models.

Tacta’s ergonomic and clever design enables extremely low pipetting and tip ejection forces that reduce the risk of Work Related Upper Limb Disorder (WRULD). The unique handle and finger hook design let the pipette rest lightly in the user’s hand, with no need to grip the handle tightly, providing reliable and accurate results during lengthy pipetting sessions. The new Sartorius Optiject, levered tip ejection technology, enables controlled and smooth tip ejection with minimum force. The Optiload feature, with spring-loaded tip cones in both single and multi-channel models, ensures tip loading with perfect sealing and minimal force.

In addition, the new Sartorius Optilock system provides flexible volume adjustment and locking functionalities, and prevents accidental volume changes during pipetting. Tacta has a large, clear 4-digit display, which makes the volume easy to read even when the pipette is at an angle. Furthermore, Tacta is very easy to adjust for a variety of liquids, using a simple adjustment key. An integrated adjustment functionality and scale show the degree of adjustment and, by noting this value for a specific liquid, the user can return to that setting any time.

With only three parts to disassemble and requiring no tools, Tacta pipettes are particularly quick and easy to clean. They can also be autoclaved without disassembly and are highly resistant to exposure to UV and chemicals. Additionally, Safe-Cone Filters are available for all Tacta models with volumes of more than 10 µl and offer a cost-effective method to reduce contamination. The unique Safe-Cone Filter ejector enables easy removal of used or contaminated filters without human contact. All Tacta pipettes are fully compatible with original Sartorius “Optifit” and “SafetySpace” pipette tips, enabling maximum accuracy and precision.
