Press Release | Ritter GmbH
February 16, 2015
Schwabmünchen, Germany: – Ritter Medical, the German-based manufacturer of sterile and technically advanced plastics for medical and research use, will exhibit its latest Ritips pro® range of syringes and advanced Ripette®genX electronic liquid dispenser at next month’s landmark Pittcon expo in New Orleans.
The Ritter team at Booth 2106 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center will be able to demonstrate Ritips pro’s advanced features. These include individual coded tips for auto recognition and calibration, while individual color-coding ensures faster identification of required tip.
Ritips® pro – greater precision and versatility
The new elongated Ritips® pro tips are ideal for use with long laboratory vessels. Ritips® pro are available in nine newly-designed standard and sterile variants, from 0.1ml to 50ml. Using direct displacement, the tips can handle viscous, infectious and volatile liquids with zero risk of contamination. The tips’ fine conical heads increase the precision, even at very low volumes in the nano litre range, eliminating need for additional pipette tips.
Ritips® pro fit all Ripette dispensers and are also compatible with most common mechanical and electronic brands, including Biohit, Rainin, Brand and Eppendorf.
Ritips® pro tips are individually tested to DIN EN ISO 8655-6 standards and manufactured to comply with IVD Directive 98/79/ EC. Independent laboratories have certified the sterile tips for purity and free of endotoxin, ATP, RNase and human DNA.
Ritter will also show new generation liquid handling dispensers including the latest Ripette®pro, with clear vision display of volumes and dosing, advanced ergonomics, maintenance-free construction and freedom from need for additional power sources or batteries.
The Ritter stand will also display the new Ripette® genX dispenser, demonstrating its precision in automatically dispensing precise volumes that match targeted dose and aliquot, as well as its ability to select the optimum tip size and electronically eject used tips.
Setting new benchmarks
“The Ripette® genX takes liquid handling technology to a new level of automation, precision and user-friendliness,” said Ritter Medical’s Melanie Wendel.
“All in all, our new Pro and genX range of liquid dose dispensers and sterile tips and needles set new international benchmarks for clinical-standard precision, ergonomics and hygiene,” she added.
“We’ve had to think and work very hard to meet increasingly sophisticated demands from our customers in healthcare systems worldwide,” said Ms. Wendel.
