The Transferpettor positive displacement pipette is ideal for use with liquids that render traditional air-displacement pipettes ineffective. Unlike air displacement pipettes, the piston of the Transferpettor directly expels the media from the tip, wiping the tip walls completely clean. This results in negligible residual wetting and highly accurate, reproducible results, especially with viscous, foaming, high-vapor-pressure, and other “problematic” liquids.
The Transferpettor is suitable for use with viscous solutions and high-density media such as concentrated protein solutions, oils, fats, resins, and glycerin. It is also suitable for use with high-vapor-pressure media (up to 500 mbar), including alcohols, acetone, and hydrocarbons that would otherwise vaporize in an air displacement tip.
