"Pipet-Lite XLS is a stylish, authoritative and sturdy pipette with a smooth action."
Having a reliable and easy to use set of pipettes is essential for every researcher and, although they are the unsung heroes, they are undoubtedly one of the most important pieces of equipment used in everyday research. Inaccurate and cumbersome to use pipettes can make life difficult at more than one level and therefore, choosing the right pipettes is crucial. Having tried almost every pipette on the market, my lab seems to be divided between the Eppendorf, Finnpipette and Gilson brands. Ignoring special offers, all three can be purchased for essentially the same price and so it’s all down to personal preference. Having started in the lab in the early eighties, I was a traditional Gilson user but I was keen to test the accuracy, reliability, and robustness of the new Pipet-Lite XLS series to determine if they were as good as they looked.
The range of liquid handling from 0.2 μL (L-2XLS) up to 20 mL (L-20MLXLS) is impressive to say the least and covers every possible experimental need. I was particularly pleased to see the pipette range include volumes not catered for by the other brands e.g. L-300XLS and L-2000XLS. The accuracy was excellent and I experienced no shift in the pipette volume because of the locking system even after a large number of samples. The Pipet-Lite XLS is certainly not cheap and flimsy but a stylish, authoritative and sturdy piece of equipment with a smooth action and easy to read display that is remarkably easy to use and clean. The only downside I noted was the fact that the metal plunger and spring were uncoated making the pipette unsuitable for use with corrosive fluids, so maybe there should be a warning to unsuspecting users or an alternative model could be sold for such applications. These pipettes come with radio frequency identification as standard and, although a nice idea, I didn’t see it as a particularly useful feature but it might have its uses in another lab. After having used the Pipet-Lite XLS for an hour, I switched back to my Gilson pipette and was amazed at the difference in resistance and how much pressure I had to exert to dispense and the stiffness of the Gilson tip ejection.
I fully recommend the Pipet-Lite XLS as a nice to handle, low resistance pipette for everyday use and I am sure that once you have tried them you will assign your old ones to the drawer - just as I have.

We purchased a number of RAININ's Pipet-Lite pipettes from Anachem and we are very happy with them. They are nice comfortable pipettes and I would definitely recommend them to other pipette users. Sally Swift, Institute of Cancer Research
Rainin Pipet-Lite L-300XLS is a variable air displacement pipette for between 20µl and 300µl. This LTS pipette reduces tip ejection forces and has lower pipetting forces. Must be used with LTS tips.
More Comfort Means More Precision
Now the family of Pipet-Lite XLS pipettes brings you the exceptional accuracy, precision & assurance your science needs,
the ergonomics & comfort you deserve, plus unique asset management control to make your lab life easier. With their
sure-fit handles, lighter springs and Rainin’s patented Magnetic Assist Technology, the high performance Pipet-Lite XLS
instruments are designed for ultimate ease of use and ergonomic safety. They are also the world’s first pipette family to
be equipped with RFID tags for advanced calibration and asset management.
Ergonomic handle design with comfortable finger hook
Improved volume adjustment lock prevents drift
Built-in shock absorber reduces thumb impact
Autoclavable quick-release tip ejector on all models
Improved Shape and Balance for a Lighter Feel Whether it’s actively in use or resting in your hand, a pipette must fit and feel right at all times. Through subtle
improvements to the highly acclaimed Pipet-Lite grip, body, finger-hook & surface texture,we’ve made Pipet-Lite XLS
the most ergonomically balanced & comfortable pipette on the market.
Smooth, Fast Volume Change with Improved Locking Improved design snag-proof volume setting gives you smoother rapid volume adjustment, even when wearing gloves. Once your
volume is selected the new easy-to-use lock mechanism prevents accidental volume drift, ensuring consistent delivery of
Even Lower Spring Forces Lighter spring, low-drag seals and Rainin’s patented Magnetic Assist™ technology gives you a plunger that is smooth and precise, yet requires less force than ever.
Calibration Tracking The unique embedded RFID (radio-frequency identification) tag in every Pipet-Lite XLS gives you an easy and efficient way to keep track of your pipette inventory and maintenance schedules. Great for improving asset management and maintaining calibration records for all users and a clear benefit for ensuring compliance in regulatory controlled labs.
RFID technology is provided FREE of Charge The RFID tag in the Pipet-Lite XLS doesn’t consume power, does not emit radiation, nor does it add weight to the pipette. Its use is optional & the pipetting operation and performance is in no way compromised if you choose not to use the RFID-based calibration check.
Use of the RFID is optional and requires LabX™ Direct Pipette-Scan™ software and RFID reader
Further Reduce Thumb Stress with LTS™ Choose the LTS™ pipetting system to dramatically reduce the repetitive stress of tip ejection. With LTS, the cylindrical shaft and positive-stop in the base of the tip creates a firm, snug seal that requires minimal force. 85% less than traditional pipette designs.
The LTS pipettes use Rainin LTS tips but these cost no more than standard tips and with a contract from Anachem you could even reduce your costs.
