PCS® Overview

The PCS is a fast, accurate, and precise system for verifying the volume dispensed from any single-channel pipette and calibrating single-channel pipettes. Portable and easy-to-use, the system is ready wherever and whenever you need it. Because the system uses ratiometric photometry and standardized dye solutions to determine the dispensed volumes, it is robust against differences in environmental conditions. Calibration results are traceable,1 enabling straightforward comparison of pipettes, operators, methods, and locations.

Optimize Pipetting Technique

  •     Perform fast and easy, calibrations and interim performance verification
  •     Improve pipetting proficiency and standardize technique with immediate feedback
  •     Calibrate pipettes in the location where they are used
  •     Verify pipette performance immediately before critical procedures and assays
  •     Verify pipette calibration following outsourced service
  •     Quickly check a pipette when a problem is suspected
