Design Solution: Phase II
An Economic Solution for the Dispensing of Liquids from Multiple Pipettes.
The the slide ratchet rail system — a feature that allows multiple pipettes to equally dispense liquid at the same time — had to be sturdy and rigid to prevent the misalignment of the pipettes entering the microplate. We concluded that by using a cross-rib, truss-like design, we could achieve a stronger backbone, while at the same time, reduce excess material, resulting in cost savings. The system includes an easy-turn ratchet system that allows for smooth and precise up and down movement of the Finnpipette™ Novus Electronic Multichannel Pipette device. Additionally, we designed a complimentary pipette storage case with an easy view protective lid, a removable surface tray for easy cleaning and integrated cord management for the electronic pipette device.
