Pipettes

For more than 60 years, Gilson has created pipettes with accuracy, comfort, and reliability as a top priority. Today, they offer a variety of pipettes in a range of ergonomic designs and volume sizes that enhance your pipetting experience and help you achieve reproducible, reliable results.

Pipettes are used to transfer or measure set volumes of liquid, ranging from 0.1 µL to 10 mL. Start by choosing a displacement method: Air-displacement pipettes are often recommended for aqueous samples since there is always an air cushion (dead volume) between the sample and the piston. Samples that are viscous, radioactive, corrosive, or volatile tend to require a positive-displacement pipette, which has a disposable piston and direct piston–sample contact. No air cushion means more accurate pipetting of high-density samples. Next, choose manual versus electronic operation. Manual pipettors tend to be very durable and easily maintained, while electronic pipettors have the advantage of increased accuracy, reduced force, and a lower risk of repetitive stress injuries. Repeating electronic pipets are useful in biochemistry, microbiology, and immunology. Single-channel pipettes are workhorses in liquid handling; multichannel pipettes are common in PCR and ELISA applications, with the number of channels ranging from 4 to 64.
