Pipettes & Pipette Tips
Pipettes for the Medical Lab
Pipettes are laboratory instruments that allow for precise dosing of liquids, such as blood or urine. They are often used in medical labs and research labs to apply blood to microscope slides or the measure reagents
There are various pipettes that differ in their design and purpose of use.
Pipettes with clear scaling are known as graduated pipettes. Since graduated pipettes can withdraw and measure different volumes, they are particularly flexible to use.
While the classic graduated pipette is a reusable glass pipette, there are also single-use plastic pipettes that are ideal for medical application. Due to its scale in ul or ml steps, this pipette type is much more versatile than a volumetric pipette.
Plastic Pasteur pipettes offer many advantages. Firstly, their number of drops per ml is easy to calculate and they can be used to store liquids. If heated, the pipette tip melts and seals itself shut, which keeps the pipetted fluids inside.
Otherwise, the pipette can be frozen together with its contents, to be thawed if needed. As a result, this type is also known as a transfer pipette.
Micropipettes or piston stroke pipettes are reusable pipettes that are equipped with disposable pipette tips. This makes them particularly hygienic to use and ideal for medical labs.
A mobile piston in the devices allows for extra precise work. They either operate via air cushion or positive displacement principle and can be ordered as fixed volume pipettes or with an adjustable volume of 0.1μl – 10ml.
