PLT Pipette Leak Testing Unit

The BRAND PLT Pipette Leak Testing Unit detects even the smallest leaks in air displacement pipettes. Leakage, arising from damage either to the seals, pistons or tip cones, is the most frequent cause of inaccuracy in piston-operated pipettes. To ensure accurate pipetting results, air-displacement pipettes must be calibrated at regular intervals. While the PLT cannot replace regular gravimetric testing, daily pipette checks can provide a safeguard during the periods between calibrations.

Now available! New PLT Connect Software allows tracking of instruments and printing of test results.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I use the PLT unit instead of sending my pipettes for calibration?
No. The PLT unit does not replace regular gravimetric testing of your pipettes. However, what it does provide is a safeguard during the periods between calibrations. Daily checks with the PLT unit can detect small leaks which affect the accuracy of the pipette, ensuring greater process reliability.

2. What is the purpose of testing my pipette both with and without a tip attached?
When you perform the test with a tip attached, the entire pipette system is checked. If a leak is detected, repeat the test without the tip. If no leak is detected without a tip attached, the pipette is funtioning fine. The leak is arising from the tip cone/tip coupling region. Most likely the tip is not a good fit. Try a different brand of tip.

3. Can I test my multi-channel pipette with the PLT unit?
Yes. The multichannel pipette adapter is not provided with the PLT unit, but is available for purchase. It is catalog number 703977.

4. Can I get replacement filters for the pipette adapters?
Yes. The replacement filters are sold in packs of 10 - catalog number 703978.
