apricot liquid handling instruments

Whatever your application, there's a flexible apricot liquid handling instrument to suit your lab's budget and needs.


"The S range pipettors are easy and simple to use. It is an indispensable instrument for our high precision assays"

Edward P. Amento MD, Molecular Medicine Research Institute

Reliable liquid handling for every lab

Empower your lab staff when copying, mixing, pooling, aliquoting, and preparing multi-step assays and serial dilutions.

Accurate pipetting

apricot instrumentation provides accurate, precise and intuitive automated pipetting technology for convenient general use across your entire team.


Easy-to-use software

Intuitive software that requires no previous automation experience. Powered from a PC or touchscreen interface depending on the instrument.


Compatible with your labware

Compatible with a wide range of labware to support many different applications, including 96/384 well plates, PCR plates and deep well blocks, microcentrifuge tubes (1.5/2.0/5.0 mL), PCR tubes and PCR tube strips, and liquid reservoirs.


EZ-Load tip technology

EZ-Load technology simplifies semi-automated pipetting with disposable tips without the need for any additional tools or fixtures for loading or unloading.


Seamless API integration

Seamless API allows you to integrate with third-party robotics.


Small benchtop footprint

Small footprint designs allow laboratories to maximize available space without compromising on pipetting performance.


Trusted by industry leaders 

"I am very impressed with the services that the Apricot Product Specialist at SPT Labtech provided. Based on the training and email communications, we are all benefitting from his extensive experience and knowledge in learning how to use the PP5 to its full extent."
