Fully Compliant Picus® NxT Electronic Pipettes with Added Benefits

Designed for Working in Regulated Areas


  • Every Picus NxT is delivered with a certificate of accredited 3-point calibration according to ISO 17025 and ISO 8655 standards.

ISO 17025 Accredited Calibration Guarantees:

  • All measurements are traceable to national and international methods and standards
  • Uncertainty can be precisely identified as due to pipette performance or pipetting process
  • The laboratory issuing the calibration certificate has been approved by independent experts and authorities including UKAS


  • New Two Level Password. Separate password protection for administrator and user profiles in Picus NxT prevents unauthorised modifications to settings. This ensures work is always done in accordance with laboratory guidelines and Standard Operating Procedures.
  • New Pipette Locking feature prevents the pipette being used while awaiting service or repair. No more sticky notes to say a pipette is “damaged” or “awaiting service” or risk of using an uncalibrated instrument.


  • Each pipette is RFID-enabled to support asset management and record keeping.

New Service Calibration Reminders

  • According to GLP guidelines and ISO Standards pipettes are precision instruments that need regular service and calibration. The Picus NxT can be programmed with service and calibration reminders according to time and/or cycle intervals


  • New User-Defined Pipetting Protocols
    Most pipetting tasks involve several pipetting modes in sequence. With the Picus NxT you can create and save custom pipetting protocols for up to nine pipetting series at a time. This enables you to carry out an entire workflow simply by pressing a button.

Ergonomics & Performance

Likewise, if your accuracy and precision of your results are critical, the performance aspects will be key.
