The Eppendorf Research Plus adjustable single-channel pipette set is a set of four adjustable single-channel pipettes with a manual volume control and secondary calibration option. This adjustable single-channel micropipette is used for transporting a measured volume of aqueous or viscous liquid. Its four-digit counter indicates the selected volume and has a magnified shape for visibility. The plunger requires low operating force to aspirate and dispense liquid, reducing user fatigue and thumb muscle activity. It has a spring-loaded tip cone for ease of connecting and ejecting pipette tips. This pipette 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 pipette has one-handed operation for aspirating and dispensing liquid, and ejecting the tip. It is color coded by volume for ease of selection. This set comes with a box of pipette tips for each corresponding pipette and four certificates of quality.
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.
