The Acura manual XS 826 was developed as an extension to the Acura manual pipette line. It integrates all features of the Acura family – its weight has, however, been reduced, and the instrument features ultra low activation forces. A shorter pipette shaft with narrow, conical end cares for superior instrument drivability and easy access to microtubes. The pipette is supplied in a single box or in Twixs pack containing two units and one free shelf pipette holder. There are six different Twixs packs to choose from, each covering specific volumes. The full coverage stretches between 0.1 μl to 1,000 μl, thus allowing any lab to find the best suitable volume combinations.
