New PIPETMAN® M: Red Dot Product Design Award Winner, 2016

Villiers-le-bel, France (11th of March, 2016) —Gilson announced today that its newly redesigned and expanded line of electronic pipette PIPETMAN® M, received the Red Dot Product Design Award 2016 in the Life Science and Medicine product category for its unique features, design and performance. Recently launched, the pipettes now include guaranteed performance in repetitive pipetting mode and a programmable custom mode, enhancing results and reliability.

Winning products were chosen by a panel of 41 judges composed of renowned specialists: outstanding products designers, respected design professors and specialized journalists, from all over the world. Evaluation criteria includes degree of innovation, ergonomics, functionality, durability, and quality. This year’s Red Dot competition received a record number of 5,214 entries from 57 countries, across 31 categories.

Gilson now guarantees accuracy and precision of the PIPETMAN® M in repetitive pipetting mode and ensures reliable performance from the first to the last aliquot. In the absence of ISO recommendations for repetitive pipetting mode for air-displacement pipettes, Gilson volumetric specifications for the repetitive mode are within ISO 8655-2 recommendations for standard pipetting.

PIPETMAN® M is easy to use and with only two buttons you can reach all menu options including five pipetting modes: Pipet (standard mode), Reverse, Repetitive, Mix, and Custom. The new custom pipetting mode lets researchers create their own multi-step pipetting protocols, using the simple PIPETMAN M Software interface.
