The Eppendorf Reference fixed-volume single-channel pipette has a red control button and provides one-handed operation. This single-channel micropipette has a fixed volume and is used for transporting a measured volume of liquid. The pipette provides one-handed operation for aspirating and dispensing liquid, and for ejecting the tip. It is color coded by volume for ease of selection, and has an area to label for identification. Its short length assists handling under fume hoods, and the removable tip ejector sleeve provides access into narrow containers. This pipette is fully autoclavable for decontamination and sterilization, and it is resistant to UV rays for long life and durability. This pipette is compatible with 2.5mL pipette tips (sold separately). It comes with a certificate of quality. Single-channel pipettes are typically used in biotechnology research, microbiology, and chemistry applications to aspirate, transport, and dispense a small, measured volume of liquid.
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.
Eppendorf manufactures instruments for cell manipulation and automated devices for liquid handling, for use in life science research laboratories. The company, found in 1945, is headquartered in Hamburg, Germany.
