HandyStep® Touch S

23 Jul 2021

Repetitive pipettes are the first choice when it comes to efficient liquid dispensing. Positive displacement pipettes are often the correct solution for pipetting viscous media. The new HandyStep® touch from BRAND combines both features.

With the intuitive touchscreen display, you are able to conveniently swipe back and forth between functions and always have an overview of the essential information on your work steps. Operation is easy, even with protective gloves on. The days of manually changing tips are over as on the HandyStep® touch, lightly tapping the eject icon on the display is enough to eject the tip.

The HandyStep® touch repetitive pipette automatically recognises the volume of the new BRAND PD-Tips II. This saves time and reduces the risk of error. Tips from many other manufacturers can also be used, providing maximum flexibility.

Charging is easy and efficient: simply place the HandyStep® touch in the inductive charging stand and the battery automatically starts charging.

The Haier Biomedical CO Incubator with Internet of Things (IoT) functionality and a 180°C dry heat sterilisation feature, provides a safe reproducible growth environment for biological cell cultures.

Ideal for use in a typical Life Science Laboratory setting with the added benefit and flexibility of installing in an under-bench setting, or even in a stacked configuration. Please see our video review below: 

The key features and benefits of the Haier HCP-168 CO incubator are as follows: 

  • Uniform and Stable Temperature:
    Temperature is precisely controlled within the fluctuation range of ±0.1℃ to ensure the normal growth of cells throughout their life cycle.
  • Precise CO Concentration:
    A new type of IR sensor controls CO concentration sensitively to keep the culture medium stable in a weak alkaline environment.
  • 180℃ Dry-heat Sterilization:
    Easy and effective sterilization of microorganisms including bacteria, fungi and strong resistant microplasma, all achievable at 180°C high temperatures without the need for consumables. Simply press the “sterilization key” to activate and complete the sterilization process automatically in just 12 hours.
  • IoT (Internet of Things) Mobile Application: The operation of incubator can be monitored at any time through a mobile APP or computer terminal. The alarm and service functions are available with just the touch of a button.
