Metropolia graduate, Mr. Miika Lönnqvist, is a member of a team, which designed a novel Picus electronic pipette, the winner of the Red Dot Design Award of 2012.
Picus is a lightweight (100 grams), feature-rich pipette, which revolutionizes the way modern laboratories handle liquids. The excellent ergonomics of Picus prevents injuries, the features make any task easy and quick to perform, the repeatability and accuracy of the results are unparalleled, and the pipette is fun to use.
Metropolia Embedded Engineering department prepared the fresh engineer Lönnqvist for this task by providing an outstanding environment for learning. Course projects encouraged self-study and taught valuable practical prototyping skills. Lectures with quality hands-on laboratory exercises guided the student towards new discoveries as their skill in the craft increased. The intensive courses and projects conducted with exchange students promoted teamwork in international environments.
