Liquid Handling Systems epMotion® 5070 - Eppendorf AG

With 4 worktable positions it is our most compact solution for accurate and reproducible automated pipetting of the epMotion family. This makes the epMotion 5070 a perfect match for any routine application such as serial dilutions, reagent distribution, sample transfer from tubes to plates, and sample normalization.

Product Information
The epMotion 5070’s pipetting technology is based on the classic Eppendorf piston-stroke pipettes; thus, protocols previously carried out manually are easily transferred to epMotion 5070. Its compatibility to a wide range of predefined consumables also allows established procedures to be maintained. Before every run the optical sensor checks that the required labware is correctly positioned on the deck and it also checks tip type and quantity available.


  • 4 ANSI/SLAS worktable and 3 virtual positions
  • Maximum pipetting accuracy from 1 to 1,000 μL
  • Calibrated 1-channel and 8-channel pipetting tools
  • Optical sensor 1) for detecting liquids, labware, tips
  • Compatible with tubes (0.2 mL to 50 mL) and microplates with up to 384 wells
