Discover the Rainin SmartStand, the World's First Intelligent Pipette Stand

publication date: Apr 25, 2017
author/source: Mettler Toledo Rainin

Mettler Toledo's recently launched Rainin SmartStand™ is set to transform pipette management.

smartstandThis intelligent, customizable and highly scalable pipette asset management system is easily adapted to any laboratory’s standard operating procedures, helping to drive compliance in regulated environments, such as pharma, GLP and QC laboratories. Non-regulated laboratories can also take advantage of SmartStand to conveniently and efficiently monitor large numbers of pipettes. Each SmartStand can accommodate four manual or electronic Rainin XLS™ and XLS+™ pipettes, reading the embedded RFID chip to determine the current calibration status, which is instantly and clearly displayed on the color LCD screen. A detailed view of the pipette’s service history and calibration status is revealed whenever it is removed from the stand, enhancing compliance by minimizing the risk of accidentally using out-of-specification equipment.

SmartStand is supplied with EasyDirect Pipette Asset Managementä software, a flexible, infinitely scalable Windows®-based tool that simplifies and streamlines data management. It can connect to multiple SmartStands simultaneously via Bluetooth®, monitoring anything from tens to hundreds of pipettes, identifying their location and capturing usage data to help laboratory managers reduce asset costs and eliminate obsolete equipment. Customizable fields allow information such as the user and lab, application and ID/inventory number to be entered for each pipette, and transferred to its RFID chip. An interim quick check can be scheduled – enabling deviation from specifications to be identified at an early stage – and service due dates indicated graphically, with the relevant documentation automatically completed and printed. After servicing and calibration, the updated record is conveniently exported to EasyDirect by replacing the pipette on any SmartStand. Data can also be transferred from EasyDirect to Microsoft Excel® and most LIMS applications, eliminating manual record keeping.
