The Tacta range of pipettes handle a range of volumes and liquids.

The Tacta range of premium mechanical pipettes from 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.

The ergonomic design enables low pipetting and tip ejection forces; the handle and finger hook design allows the pipette to rest lightly in the user’s hand, without gripping the handle tightly.

The 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. The Sartorius Optilock system provides flexible volume adjustment and locking functionalities, and prevents accidental volume changes during pipetting, the company reports.

The pipette has a large 4-digit display, which makes the volume easy to read even when the pipette is at an angle and it can be adjusted for a variety of liquids, using an 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.
