The American Educational Glass Mohr Measuring Pipette has a 5mL capacity for measuring the volume of liquids, and is calibrated to deliver with white graduations that start at the tip. The amount of liquid delivered equals the difference between initial and final volume readings. This glass pipette resists chemicals and has a color-coded band at the top that identifies its capacity. Mohr pipettes, also known as graduated pipettes, are used in laboratories and scientific applications to deliver small amounts of a liquid or solution.
Pipettes are laboratory tools for collecting, transporting, and dispensing a small amount of liquid. Sometimes called pipets, pipettors, or chemical droppers, a pipette is composed of a tube that collects the measured substance and a mechanism to aspirate and dispense the substance. Some pipettes can measure a fixed volume of liquid, others are graduated to show the volume, while others can be set to measure a volume within a range. Pipettes can aspirate and dispense liquid manually, electronically, or with a pipette filler that can be motorized. Pipettes are available in a variety of sizes and designs, offer ergonomic features for often-repeated functions, can be autoclavable for reuse, or disposable. The type of pipette used is determined by laboratory applications. Pipettes are typically used in medicine, biology, chemistry, and biotechnology for liquid handling, sampling, testing, and cell culture applications.
