Eppendorf Inaugurates Pipette Service Centre at Dubai Science Park
New facility promises to increase efficiency of scientific testing across MEA region
Dubai-UAE: 10 September, 2018 – Eppendorf, a leading German life science company headquartered in Hamburg, has inaugurated its pipette service centre at Dubai Science Park, a holistic science-focused business community.
Pipettes are widely used across many science-related sectors to accurately measure and transfer very small amounts of liquid necessary to conduct tests, particularly in the chemical, biological and medical fields. Correct calibration is crucial for accurate and precise pipetting results. The new Eppendorf facility is equipped with the latest technologies to deliver quality maintenance and calibration services to customers across the Middle East region in line with global best practices.
Dr Erich Müller, Managing Director of Eppendorf Middle East & Africa, underlines: “Since establishing a presence in Dubai in 2006, we have provided significant support to the life sciences and biotechnology sectors in the Middle East and Africa region. Our approach is very customer-centric, and with our new pipette service facility now in operation, we can offer even more technical support to our customers.”
Marwan Abdulaziz Janahi, Managing Director of Dubai Science Park and Chairing Member of the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Equipment Taskforce of the Dubai Industrial Strategy 2030, said: “The new service centre of Eppendorf is a welcome addition to the ever-increasing number of manufacturing and service facilities at Dubai Science Park that support the development of the local life science, healthcare and pharmaceutical industries in line with the ambitious goals of the Dubai Industrial Strategy 2030.”
Pipette calibration is the process by which a liquid handling device is checked and adjusted to match the manufacturer specifications, which in turn must match global standards of operation. Calibration of pipettes is of great importance for accurate and precise pipetting results. Furthermore, the ambient conditions such as air pressure, humidity and temperature.
Dubai Science Park, which is home to more than 350 business partners employing around 3,600 industry professionals, provides infrastructure that caters to the specific needs of science-focused companies, such as Eppendorf that seek to efficiently service its clients across the Middle East and Africa region.
