The Thermo Scientific Finnpipette Focus fixed-volume single-channel pipettor has a visible volume display, a soft-touch tip ejector, and a short nose cone. This fixed-volume single-channel micropipette is used for transporting a measured volume of liquid. The volume display with white digits on a black background is located on the side of the pipette for visibility. The soft-touch tip ejector helps reduce hand strain, and a textured finger rest provides a secure grip and correct pipetting angle during pipetting operations. This pipette has a short nose cone for ease of handling under fume hoods or with microplate pipetting operations. It is fully autoclavable for decontamination and sterilization. Single-channel pipettes are typically used in biotechnology research, microbiology, and chemistry applications to aspirate, transport, and dispense a small, measured volume of liquid.
The Finnpipette Focus has a blow-out piston in pipettes with volumes up to 25μL to ensure accuracy and precision at low-volume settings. This pipette disassembles for in-house cleaning, calibration, or repair. It comes with a service tool, a sample Finntip pipette tip, a tube of grease, a shelf hanger, a calibration certificate, and instructions.
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.
