A pipette every bench should have

While commonly used air-displacement pipettes are accurate for most pipetting applications, their performance is adversely affected by the physical properties of the solutions handled, such as viscosity, volatility, surface tension and temperature.

However, positive displacement pipettes like Gilson's ergonomic MICROMAN E and Capillary Pistons (CPs) work differently, and volume delivery is unaffected by the nature of the sample.  The CPs work just like a syringe,  eliminating the air cushion between the liquid and disposable piston, making it perfect for pipetting non-aqueous samples. 

The MICROMAN E is a pipette every bench should have when handling viscous, volatile, foaming, hot or cold, radioactive or infectious liquids. In addition to precision and accuracy, MICROMAN E also provides triple protection from contamination when dealing with highly contaminated or hazardous samples.

  • Your Protection: With the inbuilt tip ejector, there is no contact between your hand, the sample and the contaminated disposable capillary piston. 
  • Sample Protection: Residual carryover, which can interfere with highly sensitive experiments, is eliminated.
  • Pipette Protection:  As the pipette shaft is never in contact with hazardous or corrosive samples, aerosol contamination is avoided.

Another benefit of the MICROMAN E is how easy and convenient it is to use.  Capillary pistons can be safely and securely fitted onto the pipette in only two steps, thanks to the patented QuickSnap system. The volume switch button also reduces the risk of accidental volume adjustment for complete confidence in results.  As such, MICROMAN E is ideal for both new and experienced users for consistent, reliable results.
