The new Gilson Microman pipette, exclusively available in the UK from Anachem in Luton, is fully adjustable and uses disposable capillary pistons (CPs) to ensure sample security.
The syringe-like Microman eliminates any air space between the pipette body and the sample, protecting it against contamination and any trace carry over, the company said. Sample integrity is safeguarded, which is essential for critical procedures such as PCR, forensics, cancer diagnostics and genetic disease testing.
With no elastic air space to expand or contract, the aspiration force remains constant, unaffected by the physical properties of the sample, the company added. This means even very viscous or high-density liquids such as 50% glycerol solutions, detergents, oil, syrup or even toothpaste can be easily pipetted with accuracy and precision.
The risk of pipette damage from aggressive solvents is eliminated as the sample or its vapours cannot come into contact with the Microman's internal parts, the company said. Similarly, there is no risk of contaminating the pipette when working with hazardous materials such as radioactive compounds.
Available in six models from M10 (1-10µl) up to M1000 (200-1000µl), the Microman is lightweight (50g) and can be adapted for right- or left-handed users.
