Control pipettes with SmartStand and EasyDirect software

SmartStandMettler Toledo’s Rainin SmartStand and EasyDirect software offers an intelligent, highly scalable pipette asset management system that helps busy lab proactively handle compliance and save time on recordkeeping and reporting.

By reading the RFID chip in every Rainin XLS and XLS+ pipette, the new Rainin SmartStand transforms how labs manage their pipettes. When a pipette is placed in one of the SmartStand holders, the colour screen instantly displays its current status: green is ‘good,’ yellow indicates that service is required and red signals that the pipette is beyond its service or calibration date.

EasyDirect Pipette Asset Management software simplifies and streamlines how labs manage their pipette data. Whether a lab has 50 or more pipettes, EasyDirect is a flexible, infinitely scalable Windows-based pipette asset management tool that can connect to multiple SmartStands simultaneously via Bluetooth.

Users simply place the pipettes on a SmartStand to transfer new service data from their RFID chips into the EasyDirect software. Likewise, EasyDirect maintains a profile with 11 customisable fields for each pipette, so lab managers can assign unique information, such as the user and lab, applications and ID/inventory number, to a pipette and record it to its RFID chip. EasyDirect can also help users find pipettes by identifying which SmartStand they are hanging on.

In addition to graphically showing which pipettes are due for service or calibration, EasyDirect prepares and prints the relevant service forms. By capturing usage data through the SmartStand, EasyDirect helps lab managers reduce asset costs and eliminate pipettes that are no longer in use.  EasyDirect interfaces with Excel and most LIMS applications via file export and import.

SmartStand is highly customizable and easily adapts to any lab’s standard operating procedures. Each Rainin SmartStand holds up to four manual or electronic Rainin XLS pipettes and automatically charges electronic pipettes when they are placed on the stand. Using the optional clamps, magnets or fasteners, SmartStand’s detachable head quickly mounts to a wall or shelf.
