Combining ultra lightweight ergonomic design with a highly intuitive user interface – VIAFLO II electronic pipettes are as easy to use as a single channel manual pipette but offer many advantages.

The VIAFLO II’s integral colour screen together with easy to navigate touch wheel user interface ensures set up and operation are both simple and fast. With the VIAFLO II touch wheel user interface, it’s a lot quicker and easier to change volumes than with a manual pipette. Forget about twisting/rotating a knob on the manual pipette to go from high to low volume (or vice versa). It’s slow and fatiguing. The touch wheel of the VIAFLO II pipettes can be operated single handed and you can jump from minimum to maximum volume within a second. Simply by running your finger across the Touch Wheel you can select your pipetting protocols and modify operating parameters such as volumes. All VIAFLO II pipettes include a choice of up to 10 predefined pipetting modes enabling a user to start working almost immediately with a minimum of parameters to define. For more demanding pipetting routines up to 40 personalized custom programs can be created and stored. The onboard help text provides easy-to-understand explanations of operating functions and options in the user interface’s language.

The ergonomic design of VIAFLO II electronic pipettes facilitates hours of tireless pipetting. With just one light press of the Run button a VIAFLO II electronic pipette can perform many procedures eliminating the time-consuming repetitive plunger motion required of manual pipettes. Available in single, 8-, 12- and 16-channel versions, VIAFLO II electronic pipettes offer an optimized precision pipetting solution from 0.5 - 1250 microlitres.

Together with INTEGRA’s wide range of GripTip pipette tips – VIAFLO II electronic pipettes form the perfect pipetting system. GripTips snap into place with minimal tip loading effort, providing a secure connection. GripTips never fall off and are always perfectly aligned, resulting in superior accuracy and precision results.
