"I don't like these. They are easy to use but don't allow for low volumes on dispersal. Other brands that I've used will disperse below the minimum volume range marked of the pipette, for instance the P200 of the Gilson M line has a range of 20-200uL but will disperse volumes of 5uL. The Transferpette p200 won't disperse amounts under 20uL, and the P1000 won't disperse under 100uL. We also experienced fairly meh customer service when trying to get a battery fixed/replaced. Ultimately we are looking for a replacement set of electronic repeat pipettors. "
Manufacturer's ResponseThank you for taking the time to review our Transferpette® electronic pipette. The lower end of the volume range of the instrument you purchased has been limited by design. The relative accuracy (% of volume dispensed) for air displacement pipettes from all manufacturers drops off significantly once the volume is set to less than 10% of the nominal (maximum) capacity of the pipette. For this reason, the lower ranges of the Transferpette® electronic pipettes are limited so the user is not given a false sense of accuracy. This is also why all manufactures offer pipettes in a wide variety of volume ranges. We’re sorry to hear you were unhappy with the service you received. We were unaware the issue was not resolved to your satisfaction. Please reach out to us so we may find a resolution.

"Those electronic micropipettes are very reliable and economic. The price is comparable to the one of a manual micropipette and the reproducibility is unbeatable. I particularly like the design of the high volume tips (5-10 mL) that allow you to spike directly from a volumetric flask without pouring out the liquid"

"This is an excellent pipette to pipette liquid of any kind. It is reliable, highly accurate and easy to use. I would recommend these pipettes to anybody working in a laboratory. "
The BRAND Transferpette® electronic is an ergonomic, intuitive electronic pipette for use in most laboratory applications.
The Transferpette® electronic Single Channel Pipette is available in five volume ranges for reliable dispensing of volumes from 0.5µL to 5mL. The soft-touch pipetting key, adjustable finger-rest, light weight and innovative tip cone of the Transferpette® electronic Single Channel Pipette minimize static strain and operational forces, reducing the risk of repetitive stress injuries (RSI).
Five convenient operating modes of the Transferpette® electronic Single Channel Pipette are simple to set and simple to use: standard pipetting, sample mixing, reverse pipetting, step dispensing, and gel loading. Easily removable autoclavable shaft protects sterile operations. The microprocessor controlled Transferpette® electronic greatly reduces the imprecision and inaccuracy caused by operator inconsistency. Rechargeable battery powers over 4000 pipetting cycles with each charge. Accepts universal tips.
