METTLER TOLEDO Rainin PipetteX and SmartStand for pipette calibration tracking

Research organisations may have dozens to thousands of pipettes spread across labs — and even across separate buildings or sites. Many companies struggle to compile an accurate and complete list of active assets, as pipette serial numbers become unreadable and calibration stickers wear off.

All Rainin XLS-brand pipettes have RFID tags that store information including the model, age and calibration data — the latter updated during services by METTLER TOLEDO. To leverage this rich data source, METTLER TOLEDO Rainin launched PipetteX along with SmartStand, an ‘intelligent’ RFID-enabled pipette stand. PipetteX monitors pipette inventories both by reading from and by writing to pipettes on SmartStands. It centrally tracks calibration dates, displays days left to upcoming service on SmartStands at the bench, stores calibration certificates, and tracks pipette age, usage, users and labs.

PipetteX sends notifications to scientists when their pipettes are nearing service dates and creates pickup lists from last-seen locations. It minimises administrative time and tasks for pipettes, reducing audit risk, and puts in place a system to monitor calibration compliance. It thus simplifies a process that once took a lot of time to manage.
