Simple, fast and precise with untiring battery power – You deserve it!
The Eppendorf Xplorer electronic pipettes are single-, 8-, 12-, 16- and 24-channel pipettes designed to aspirate and dispense liquid volumes from 0.5 µL to 10 mL while eliminating many of the potential error risks associated with manual pipetting. The intuitive operating concept and ergonomic design, supported by Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept® set new standards in simplicity, precision and reproducibility. The Xplorer digital pipettes are the ideal instrument if you need precisely adjustable parameters, reproducible and accurate results while experiencing fatigue-free pipetting and always maintaining full control over pipetting procedures.
Discover the exciting extras of Eppendorf Xplorer plus
The expanded version Eppendorf Xplorer plus offers exciting extras such as additional applications, individual fixed volume settings, individual programming and a history function to make work much easier and faster. During longer periods of inactivity, the electronic pipette can be switched off to save energy. The extended version of the Eppendorf Xplorer is the perfect choice for all users who simply need advanced speed, safety and reliability every day.
Modes of operation in Xplorer and Xplorer plus
Everything under control
All information on the pipette display is clearly readable, regardless of your hand position or work position. The optimally angled high-resolution display with a controllable brightness setting guarantee a comfortable work environment.
Logical pipette operation with the unique multi-function rocker: The switch enables precise control of liquid aspiration and dispensing. It follows the unique »Up is up and down is down« principle: Press the rocker up to aspirate liquids and down to dispense liquids.
Ergonomics means to never feel the effects of hard work!
The perfect balance and hand rest of the Eppendorf Xplorer electronic pipettes guarantee a low-impact position and efficient means for relaxation periods. The handle and size of the control buttons feature a user-friendly design, irrespective of hand size. Because your performance is the most valuable resource, we have significantly reduced the weight and required operating force of the Eppendorf Xplorer pipettes.
Ergonomics – A history of practiced innovation
All Eppendorf Xplorer single-channel and multi-channel pipettes up to 1,000 µL are equipped with the unique spring-loaded tip cone and SOFTeject function to reduce operating forces to a minimum. With the new 16 and 24-channel pipettes which build a system with the new pipette tips epT.I.P.S.® 384 operating forces could be further reduced.
Spring-loaded tip cone for reliable tip fit and low tip attachment forces
The spring-loaded tip cone saves your energy and time. With haptic feedback there is no need for rocking and banging. It indicates a perfect and reliable tip fit. Just one gentle push-down until you receive the haptic feedback and you are done. The spring limits the attachment forces and at the same time guarantees a reproducible and safe tip fit. It provides increased user to user reproducibility for more uniform results among members of the lab. All Eppendorf micropipettes up to 1,000 µL are equipped with this spring-loaded tip cone.
SOFTeject reduces tip ejection forces by 50 %
During a single tip ejection stroke, the outside tips eject before the inside tips. You just slightly press the ejection button once, and automatically the tips are ejected successively. You will not notice that at all. But what you will notice is that this technology reduces tip ejection forces by 50 %. Enjoy it in all Eppendorf multi-channel pipettes.
Get your work done faster with multi-channel pipettes
You want to easily and quickly fill a 24-, 96- or even 384-well microplate? With the efficient Eppendorf Xplorer/Xplorer plus 8-, 12-, 16- and 24-channel pipettes you get a higher volume of precision work done. The spring-loaded tip cone helps to load multi-channel tips quickly and securely without a need for rocking. Get extremely consistent sample pickup across all channels and maximize user to user reproducibility for more uniform results among members of the lab.
Easily fill 96-well plates with 8- or 12-channel Xplorer/Xplorer plus pipettes. The 1,200 µL volume is ideal for filling deep well plates.

NEW Xplorer® plus - 16 and 24-channel pipettes for 384-well applications
Do you work with 384-well plates and strive for more efficient manual pipetting methods? Alternate well pipetting with 8- and 12-channel pipettes belongs to the past, your worries are over! Eppendorf’s new 16- and 24-channel pipettes make working with 384-well plates convenient, ergonomic and safe.
› Tedious alternate well pipetting with 8- or 12-channel pipettes is a thing of the past
› Start 16 or 24 reactions simultaneously for equal starting conditions
› Protects from accidental well misidentification and repeating of experiments
› Processing one 384 instead of four 96-well plates improves pipetting efficiency as the number of steps is reduced by 50 %
Our new epT.I.P.S. 384® are designed in perfect harmony with these microliter pipettes. The pipettes and tips for 38-well formats build a system which fulfills the high demands of processing the fine wells of the plate.
NEW epT.I.P.S. 384® with SOFTattach technology for 16- and 24-channel pipettes
A key innovation: For the first time, pipette tips are equipped with elastic forming groves. They allow the tips to stretch as much as the shape of the tip cone predefines. Meanwhile, the tip attachment and ejection forces are greatly reduced. With this continued development of our Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept, this system enables a perfect tip seal while operating forces are reduced to a minimum.
- Reliable tip fit and tightness
- Smooth and even tip attachment
- Tip attachment forces reduced by 40 % per cone compared to 8- and 12-channel pipettes
- Reduced ejection forces
- Perfect tip alignment by extraordinary coaxiality for safe plate maneuvering and liquid transfer
- Extremely fine tip shape to perfectly hit all 384 wells
