Multipette® plus: This new manual hand-held dispenser is the ideal precision instrument for saving time and speeding up long series pipetting. Increased volume selection provides all-round support for research tasks allowing outstanding flexibility. The Combitips are replaced in the blink of an eye and the handling is more than kind to your hand and thumb muscles.
In detail: With nine combitips sizes, you can dispense 112 different volumes. Enjoy the unique advantage of dispensing e.g. 100 x 250 Âµl without taking a break, not even for a refill. You simply can't get any quicker than that!
The system: All Combitips plus are simply attached to the Multipette plus and then recognized by the dispensers built-in sensor, with the volume appearing automatically in the display. Time-consuming volume calculations and incorrect dispensing volumes are now a thing of the past. Addtionally, a contact- and contamination-free ejection of the Combitip plus is now possible just with a push of the buttons.
Ergonomy: If you have to tackle long series every working day,youâ€™re entitled to expect that health risks are kept to an absolute minimum.
For this reason, the Multipette plus ensures that the stress is on the word â€śergonomicsâ€ť and not on your body. The Multipette is superlightweight â€“ the stroke path has been drastically reduced in order to alleviate thumb strain. In short, the Multipette plus enables you to save time and energy during your liquid handling routines.

Eppendorf Multipette® plus Repeating Pipette consumables
Combitips® Advanced function according to the positive-displacement principle, which ensures the correct volume is dispensed, irrespective of density or viscosity of the liquid used. Dispensing radioactive, aggressive toxic substances and solutions with higher vapor pressure is now much safer with positive-displacement systems. No aerosols are formed and Combitip advanced tips can simply be ejected and disposed of after dispensing.
To allow you to fully enjoy the improved user-comfort of the Multipette® plus and Multipette® stream/Xstream, we have developed the Combitip Rack. The Combitip Rack is a box for 10 Combitips® plus. It enables the user to attach tips using one hand only, thus saving even more time.

POCD Scientific ~ Eppendorf’s Australian distributor for Multipette® plus Repeating Pipette ~ FAQs
Your feedback will help us provide products and services that respond to your needs. Please select the category your comments are most closely related to, so we can direct your comments appropriately.
Is there a 8-channel adapter for the Multipette plus or Multipette pro?
No, there is no multichannel adapter for the Multipette plus or pro.
I used the "Contrade" solution to decontaminate my Multipette. Can I also use this solution for the Multipette plus?
Since we do not know what the composition of this solution is we are unfortunately unable to answer this question. To disinfect a Multipette we recommend the use of 60 % isopropanol. Please take care that no solution enters the Multipette or comes onto the display.
How are the Multipettes tested?
According to EN ISO 8655 the nominal volume of a Combitip is measured with water 10 times. The calibration, testing conditions and the measurement ranges according to EN ISO 8655 are described in our "Eppendorf SOP - Standard Operating Procedure for pipettes". It can be downloaded from our homepage.
Can the Multipette plus be autoclaved?
No, it cannot be autoclaved. To disinfect the Multipette plus we recommend to wipe it over with a cloth moistened in a disinfectant such as isopropanol. Please take care that no liquid enters the device or comes onto the display.
For sterile working, sterile Biopur Combitips plus must be used.
Are the Multipette pro and Multipette plus resistant to acetonitrile?
Yes. However, direct contact of the multipette housing with acetonitrile can lead to discoloration. This has no effect on the random error (precision) or systematic error (accuracy) of the Multipette.
Why does the Multipette pro have better values for random error (imprecision) than the Multipette plus?
The Multipette pro works with an even reproducible rhythm during pipetting. This has a positive effect on the random error (precision).
Is there a Multipette plus in a 8-channel version?
No, there does not exist an 8-channel version for the Multipette plus, only for the old model 4780. Pipettes with 8 or 12 channels are only available for the Research pro or the Research multichannel.
How can the Multipette or the Multipette plus be tested?
The volume setting was set to position 1 for both Multipettes. 48 dispensing steps (measuring values) were given for the Multipette and 50 for the Multipette plus. Testing can be carried out with any Combitip size.
Information on testing and the limits of the ISO 8655 are also found in the SOP for Liquid Handling.
Is the material of the Multipette plus resistant against ethylacetate (acetic acid ethylester) and dichloromethane (methylene chloride)?
Why aren't the Multipette pro and the Multipette plus tested with the same test volumes on the technical specifications so that they can be compared?
Both pipettes are tested according to the same DIN or ISO standard. However since handling of the two dispensers can vary, the test conditions are also different. For example the Multipette pro can be completely emptied in one step whereas the M. plus cannot (this is in pipette mode of the MP pro). Therefore the M. pro is tested with the total volume of the fitted Combitip and 1/10 of this volume. Dispensers that cannot be emptied in one step are tested with other volumes.
Is the material of the Multipette plus resistant against methanol, isooctane, n-hexane or n-heptane?
Is the Multipette plus resistant to hydrochloric acid, nitric acid and hydrofluoric acid?
From factory number 1180012, the Multipette plus will be supplied with an improved sensor to protect it from corrosion due to aggressive chemicals. This will considerably improve straightforward use of the modified Multipette plus with concentrated acids (like 70 % HNO3, 37 % HCl or 40 % HF, for example).
Is the Multipette plus resistant to toluene, petroleum, and naphtha ?
These chemicals damage the Multipette plus through contamination ( = incorrect use) and if immediate measures are not undertaken!
With long-term use, damage may occur from the vapors. Short-term use (i.e. use for a couple of hours per day) will probably not cause damage to the device: the probability that no damage will occur is "very high" but unknown.
Is the Multipette plus suitable for dispensing hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)?
Combitips plus, the tips for the Multipette plus, are resistant to hydrogen peroxide. At high concentrations (30 %) and with prolonged exposure, however, hydrogen peroxide may attack the surface of the Multipette plus.
Can the Multipette plus be cleaned with 50 % bleach solution?
No. As the bleaching agent leads to oxidation, this would impair the electronics of the Multipette plus.
Can the Multipette plus be adjusted by the user?
The Multipette plus can only be tested by electronic methods. In the event of any problems with the multipette, it should be sent to the appropriate Eppendorf service partner or the Eppendorf Marketing office for testing.
Can the Multipette plus be used to fill a MTP?
Yes, but it must be dispensed very carefully so that no liquid splashes out.
Is it possible to put a battery other than the one we supply in the Multipette plus?
No, only our battery (4980.215.003) can be used. One reason for this is excessive current protection, for example.
Is it possible to dispense a viscous solution at a temperature of approx. 65 Â°C using the Multipette plus? For example, agar into Petri dishes?
Yes, this is possible. However, it is important to be aware that the agar may set in the Combitip/plus if the solution is not dispensed quickly enough. Of course, these applications lie outside the scope of applications defined by Eppendorf, with the result that the specifications given cannot be guaranteed.
Is it possible to dispense 2 Âµl of water with the Multipette plus as a free jet?
Yes, this is possible.
Does a Combitip always have to be filled with the total volume?
No, the Multipette can also be used with a Combitip that has not been completely filled. In this case please bear in mind that the first dispensing step has to be discarded!
What is the warranty period for the Multipette plus?
The warranty period for the Multipette plus is two years from the day of purchase.
Where can I find the batch number / lot number on the Multipette plus?
The batch number is engraved directly under the dispensing lever or in the battery chamber.
