Single Channel Mechanical Pipettes

A Single Channel Mechanical Pipette is used to transfer small amount of liquid, usually down to 0.1 µL and up to 10,000 µL, from one thing to another.  In a molecular biology lab, it is likely to be one of the first tools you learn to use, and one every scientist spends much of their day using. It is an essential tool for molecular biology lab, chemistry, pharmaceutical and forensic labs. That being said, it is very important to spend time selecting the best single channel pipette for your lab, and to meet your needs.

Variations between each single channel mechanical pipette can include its ergonometric features, pipette tips, volume ranges, ejector buttons, and more. Read through user manuals to get a feel for how that specific single channel pipette performs.

Single Channel Mechanical Pipette Or Electronic

Single channel pipettes are available in both electronic and manual formats. The manual format offers cost effectiveness and a classic design. The electronic single channel pipette format justifies a higher price with its added benefits of increased ergonomics, enhanced repeatability, and increased accuracy and precision.  A focus on ergonomics has become increasingly important as more scientists have developed Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) due to constant pipetting.  New features such as light weight models, low plunger forces, and hand hooks have stifled much of the RSI occurring in the lab today.
