ATMOS Revolution pipette accuracy testing
With ATMOS, you can everyday check, in 30 seconds, the accuracy of all your pipettes.
This allows a continuous monitoring of performance between the usual calibration procedures.
ATMOS is measuring in dry conditions the exact volume of air displaced by the movement of the pipette's piston.
Direct measurement, no need of liquid
Easy to use, compact (can be placed at the bench)
Pipette accuracy monitoring done in less than 30 seconds
Upload the calibration check report to a computer or direct print with Bluetooth mini-printer (optional)
2 ATMOS models to cover most used pipette type
Atmos 1000: P10 to P1000 pipettes, minimum volume at 2µl
Atmos Multi: P20 to P1250, 8 channels pipettes, P10 to P1000

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1) Can I use ATMOS to calibrate my pipettes ?
ATMOS for daily monitoring of the accuracy of your pipettes. ATMOS displays the error compared to the set volume.
This allows you to put damaged pipette on hold and not use them until your next campaign of calibration by gravimetry.
You can use ATMOS to readjust a pipette in case of shift of accuracy (most of pipettes have a special tool to adjust the volume).
2) What is the leak measurement ?
ATMOS is measuring the air leak of the pipette or of the tip during its function. High leak can be related to a damaged piston in the pipette or to a defect in connection of the disposal tip.
The leak value is give in percentage of volume loss per second. A leak of less than 1% is acceptable.
3) How ATMOS accuracy compares with gravimetry method ?
The random error of ATMOS readings are similar to those observed in gravimetry measurement with a laboratory scale.
The absolute accuracy of ATMOS stay within ± 1% of the measured volume ( ±0.1 µl for volumes below 10 µl )
4) Does the ATMOS need re-calibration service ?
ATMOS is measuring the volume dispensensed by the pipette by comparing with an internal fixed volume cavity.
This reference volume, made of metal, is calibrated at the factory within 0.1% accuracy. ATMOS does not need re-calibration.
5) Is it possible to export data ?
ATMOS is designed to be compatible with automated platform and can be interfaced to any computer system (Window, Mac, Linux or other). Connection to the microUSB port allows a direct interface that can be used for pipette calibration.
The program ReadATMOS (Mac OSX and Windows) allows extraction of data.
