Custom Pipette Design and OEM Manufacturing

Custom Plastic Pasteur Pipette

With more than 20 years experience in custom pipette design, Alpha Laboratories is your best source for a bespoke specification.

Nearly 40 years ago Alpha Laboratories was the first company to introduce a  plastic disposable Pasteur pipette into the European market. That product, the standard Pastette, is still available today. Since then, users have favoured the Pastette for its convenience and safety and seen multiple opportunities for its use. Plastic, unlike glass, can be used to produce almost any design, with the additional benefit of being unbreakable and therefore safe!

Keen to find the best solutions for the people who use the pipettes, Alpha Laboratories responded and over the years applied various modifications to the basic design.  These provided additional features and functionalities to suit particular applications, creating a Pastette range that now includes more than 50 standard models. In addition, Alpha has created many more specific designs for kit manufacturers and other users. Sometimes you cannot find the tool that works perfectly for your application, you may want something a little different or need to personalise the product or packaging in some way.

The current Pastette range has evolved over many years to keep pace with laboratory and technique developments. Many of the current designs were the result of requests from users: adding graduations, lengthening/shortening stems and narrowing/widening the tip. If you have a specific need, we can help.

Ask the Experts! Alpha Laboratories is highly qualified to provide a range of customised solutions, tailored to your specific requirements.
