A pipette verification device saves time and money by verifying the performance of a pipette before working with precious samples or reagents. SmartCheck™ is the only benchtop pipette volume verification device capable of determining if a pipette is dispensing accurately in less than 60 seconds. Compact by design, SmartCheck reduces the risk of experimental failure.
With SmartCheck, pipette verification is simple: Just choose one of SmartCheck's pre-set volumes that are within the operating range of the pipette and dispense that volume into the vessel. After automatically detecting the volume, SmartCheck prompts you to dispense the same volume three more times. SmartCheck runs a number of calculations, and then clearly indicates pass or fail.
Not only is SmartCheck fast – it's the only automatic ISO 8655-based pipette verification tool available. SmartCheck takes volumetric measurements using the gravimetric method and calculates the random and systematic error based on four measurements. It then determines the measurement uncertainty of the delivered volume in percentages, comparing it to the pipetting tolerance in percentages, yielding a quick pass or fail statement of the instrument and user within 60 seconds.
Use SmartCheck to verify the performance of any brand of pipette that dispenses volumes between 10–1000 μL. Verify individual channels of multichannel pipettes too. It's simple: dispense deionized water into the liquid chamber and SmartCheck automatically detects the test volume, then prompts you to dispense the same volume three more times. From start to finish, SmartCheck delivers a pass/fail result in less than 60 seconds. This compact device is also perfect for training and improving pipetting technique.
METTLER TOLEDO supports and services your pipettes through their entire life-cycle, from good pipetting techniques to preventive maintenance and calibration to equipment repair.

Verifying the performance of a pipette before working with precious samples or reagents saves time and money. In less than 60 seconds you will know if a pipette is aspirating and dispensing correctly. Between calibrations, SmartCheck provides a fast, practical way to verify that a pipette is dispensing accurately and provides reassurance that the pipette you are using is performing as expected.
Pipette verification allows the user to determine if the pipette is dispensing accurately before starting an experiment. Regular pipette calibration and preventative maintenance can significantly reduce the costs, risks, and liabilities associated with out-of-calibration pipettes. However, in-between calibration intervals failures and out-of-tolerance issues can arise. Several factors can compromise the integrity of your pipettes – causing them to deliver incorrect volumes and irreproducible results.
SmartCheck is a new verification technology from Rainin that allows life science researchers to verify the performance of their pipettes right at the bench. It takes just 60 seconds to know whether a pipette is accurate or not. Quickly and easily verify the accuracy of your pipetting prior to critical experiments.
SmartCheck provides a fast, practical way to verify that a pipette is dispensing accurately and reduce the risk of experimental failure. It may be used to verify single channel or individual channels of a multichannel pipette.
SmartCheck does not replace regular pipette calibration and maintenance. Rainin recommends verifying every pipette at least once a month. Regular verification helps ensure consistent, accurate pipetting in between scheduled pipette calibrations or maintenance.
Both devices use the gravimetric principle and have a weighing cell, but the comparison ends there. SmartCheck uses an advanced load cell technology that is designed to be fast, simple and very robust. SmartCheck automatically performs ISO 8655-based calculations and delivers a clear pass/fail result. Balances only deliver absolute values that need to be converted, calculated and require a high level of skill and technique.
SmartCheck verifies all brands of pipettes.
