Precise and Repeatable Pipetting of Problem Liquids

Pipetting seems easy, but some tips and tricks can help you to get consistent and reproducible results - even with difficult liquids.

Reproducible DNA Amplification in PCR

Nowadays, PCR can be robust and easy—but you can still run into difficulties. Make sure to get the most out of your PCR with some simple tricks.

Aerosols in the Lab

Aerosols are colloidal systems of droplets and / or solid particles suspended in air. Aerosols can be found almost everywhere in the world and we inhale them continuously, so we should differentiate between harmful and harmless aerosols. The most important aerosols in the laboratory environment are bio-aerosols.

Pharma Centrifuge Solutions

Therapeutic Antibodies

The use of monoclonal antibodies (mAb) has been accepted as an effective cure for the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases. Today antibodies dominate the biopharmaceutical market and their development and production using hybridoma cells is widely established. Rising time and cost pressures in combination with the demand for higher throughput make the development of therapeutic antibodies challenging.

Many factors have to be taken into account and alternative solutions are evaluated to battle challenges like sample protection, efficiency, and reproducibility. In addition, optimized ergonomics can reduce hands-on time, protect lab staff from work-associated injuries and improve overall performance.

Drug Discovery Workflow

The mAb drug discovery process includes several centrifugation steps with individual requirements for the used device. Eppendorf solutions of centrifuges, rotors and vessel adapters are based on protocol evaluation and customer interviews within mAb drug discovery community.

We offer a variety of comprehensive packages for R&D from our large centrifuge portfolio which best fit your needs - so you have the peace of mind to focus on the medicine of tomorrow.

Shake faster! Ready for current high yield expression protocols

Current microbiological DNA and protein expression protocols lead to optimised yields with specialised flasks at shaking speeds of up to 400 rpm (e.g. Ultra Yield flasks from Thomson Instrument). Compared to other shakers in the market, the Innova S44i can provide and sustain high speeds at an orbit of 2.5 cm (1 in) 24/7 with maximum platform loads. This makes the Innova S44i a real workhorse for protein production. You can further increase your yield per footprint by triple stacking the device.


Shake more! Up to twice as many flasks as other shakers in the market

Platform, chamber, and the heavy duty Eppendorf X-drive of the Innova S44i are optimised for high vessel capacity and load – to maximise the throughput of your lab. If vessel capacity is crucial for you, compare the capacity of the Innova S44i with other shakers in the market. Of course, the Innova S44i is also compatible with online in-flask monitoring systems like CGQ (by aquila biolabs) or PreSens, and microplate-screening systems like the Duetz-System.
