Selecting The Right Pastette

Application Considerations

With over 50 designs to choose from there are various considerations to be made when selecting the best pipette for your application.

Pipette Length

From the shortest (36mm) to the longest (300mm), you can select the length that allows you to reach into deep vessels or delicately draw fluid from small wells.

Bulb Draw Volume

Each Pastette® in the range is shown with the maximum liquid volume that can be drawn in a single transfer allowing you to select the one most suitable to your typical volume transfers.

Tip Design

Alternative tip sizes allow you to choose smaller drop sizes in a variety of tip lengths, where work with small volumes and delicate applications is critical.

Wide bore designs are ideal for viscous fluids or whole cells reducing shearing to a minimum.

Drop Volume

All Pastettes are accurate to ±10% of the stated specification allowing you to deliver drops of known µl volumes.
