I will never be able to use a different pipette again.
Application Area: Molecular biology/microbiology/liquid handling
"As someone who suffers from joint issues in my fingers, Pipetman L and its ultra-light pipetting force has allowed me to work without straining or pain in my fingers. Without these pipettes, I would not be able to work anymore. These are ultra-easy to use, and the entire pipette is autoclavable without disassembly (I can’t think of ANY other pipette that can do that), super ergonomic, adjustable for left or right-handed use. Features a locking volume selector so you never have to worry about the volume changing while you work. Super accurate and super precise. The cost of these pipettes is cheaper than a lot of the poorer quality pipettes, plus “starter kits” are available including multiple sizes in one kit at a discount. These come with both metal and plastic tip ejectors, so you do not need to worry about working with corrosives. Gilson also has amazing and cheap calibration services that are easy to access, quick, and always produce amazing results. They are always so willing to help."
The PIPETMAN® L pipettes improve on the legendary PIPETMAN Classic with a newly designed body for enhanced comfort and a state-of-the-art volume-locking mechanism for precision. The air-displacement-based PIPETMAN L is available in eight single channel models covering a volume range of 0.2 µL to 10 mL and eight multichannel models covering a volume range of 0.5 to 300 µL.
The PIPETMAN L pipettes, the most comfortable models in the Gilson portfolio, offer an ideal weight and handle shape. The more natural fit of the pipette lets you relax your grip to make pipetting less fatiguing for your hand. To decrease the risk of repetitive strain injuries, the PIPETMAN L features an updated piston assembly with more responsive springs, which reduces pipetting forces. The tip ejector is also adjustable for right- or left-handedness, whichever is most comfortable for you.
Optimized Safety and Precision
PIPETMAN L offers a true volume-locking mechanism to guarantee no accidental volume change during pipetting cycles, which could alter the accuracy and precision of your results. The patented locking system fully disconnects the operating rod from the counter assembly during pipetting so that once locked into place, the volume cannot be accidentally changed, preventing accidental volume drift during pipetting tasks. To help you minimize cross-contamination, PIPETMAN L is fully autoclavable with no disassembly required for maximum convenience.
PIPETMAN L features a 2D identification bar code for easy traceability that covers the product part number, date of manufacturing, and serial number. Using a universal scanner, the pipette information can be downloaded to a spreadsheet or other software for tracking, which is particularly suited for enhanced GLP compliance. The PIPETMAN L also has a color-coded push button that corresponds in color to Gilson PIPETMAN Tip packages.
