Eppendorf pipettes come with great precision, quality and good look. I love this.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Research

"I have used Eppendorf pipettes ranging from volume 0.1 μl to 1000 μl for regular lab work. I have also used Eppendorf pipettes for performing ELISA. These pipettes have an excellent feel, and using them is a great experience. At lower volumes, these pipettes are of great precision. If I do MTT assays and add a small volume of drugs, and likewise when I do qRT-PCR analysis for taking samples, I find Eppendorf pipettes are the best. These pipettes are both user friendly and look great. Don't look for cost, look for quality."

Great for a specific function in the lab.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Pipetting

"I recently purchased an Eppendorf Research Plus pipette. The pipette works like any other pipette; adjust the dial to the desired setting and aspirate and dispense the desired volume. What I like about this pipette is that it uses universal pipette tips. This is essentially important for my work because I need to use extra long tips and my other pipettes (from a different well known brand) does not make long pipette tips that are supported their own pipettes. The Eppendorf Research Plus pipette does have a specific function for my lab use. I purchased this as part of a trade-in program, where I would purchase this new pipette at a discounted price on the condition that I submit an old pipette back to Eppendorf. I received the new pipette, but there was no instructions on how to send my old pipette for the exchange."
