Kalstein laboratory pipettes are instruments for measuring small volumes and transferring them from one container to another, the advantage of these automatic pipettes is that they can measure liquids with great accuracy, it is achieved by turning a wheel integrated into the pipette, and shows us the volume on the digital display.
There are different types of pipettes, but one of the most used is variable volume micropipettes, they are the ideal precision instrument for the needs of measuring liquids in clinical analysis and quality control laboratories. A micropipette is a laboratory device used to absorb and transfer small volumes of liquids.
The volumes that can be captured by these instruments vary according to the model and type of pipette: the most common, called p20, p200 and p1000, admit a maximum of 20, 200 and 1000 μl, respectively. It is noteworthy that the use of micropipettes allows the use of different liquids without having to wash the device: for this, disposable plastic tips are used, which are usually sterile.
The characteristics of the fluid and the precision required in the volumes of liquids transferred in microliters (µL) are key factors in choosing a micropipette. It is also important to consider the operator's expertise and ergonomics.
