Ergonomic pipets (View forum version)


Posted 10 December 2010 - 07:51 AM

Does anyone have recommendations on ergonomic pipets? I am looking to replace outdated pipets with something ergonomic for the lab's increasing repetitive pipetting tasks. So far, I am considering VistaLab's Ovation pipets and Rainin's ergonomic models. Any others worth looking into? Also, is it worth spending the extra money for electronic vs. manual? Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.

I quite like Capp pipettes. Electronic is fine, but battery life can be a problem. It might be a good idea to get a retailer representative to give you some to try.

Personally I do not like electronic pipetts, always had technincal problems after a short time. Personally I perefer Gilson-style pipetts, they are very robust and reliable.
For repeptitive tasks we have some multi-stepper pipetts in the lab, they are very useful and good to handle (here also the electronic ones that have a real point because you can use every volume; but still I prefer the manual ones).

But you really should ask companies if they can give you a try, so you will find the best pipetts for your lab.

I used this http://www.lhp-labor...lhppipettes.pdf
It was the only pipette that I used that did not cause me pains.
