Gilson Celebrates 40 Years of PIPETMAN®


A milestone is fast approaching for Gilson, Inc., as it celebrates 40 years of delivering innovation.  Four decades ago, the PIPETMAN pipette was created as the first adjustable volume pipette on the market with its patented volumeter registered in 1972.  Today, it is still one of the most popular pipettes in labs worldwide.  Since then, Gilson has focused on launching new, innovative products based around the reputable PIPETMAN.

In honor of its anniversary, Gilson will be hosting celebrations worldwide to thank customers for their continued support and will be raffling off special anniversary items throughout the next three months including limited edition PIPETMAN. 

Gilson, Inc., established in the 1950s as Gilson Medical Electronics (GME) Co. in Middleton, WI, was founded by the late Dr. Warren Gilson and originally produced instruments ranging from photographic chart recorders for cardiac catheterization to metal detectors for locating shrapnel. Having designed a device in the 1940s to measure respiratory volumes in a circular format with a digital readout, Gilson combined this with the features and the engineering of a German-made pipette to invent a pipette with a digital readout and counter wheels. It was compact and cheap to make. Importantly, it dispensed accurate volumes of liquid. British scientists were first introduced to PIPETMAN in 1971 and in 1972 the PIPETMAN Classic was launched.

www.PipetmanL.com Winner!

CONGRATULATIONS to Anthony Sutter of Proteos, Inc.!

In October, Gilson offered a chance to register on www.PipetmanL.com to win a free PIPETMAN® L mechanical pipette.  The newest in the PIPETMAN family, PIPETMAN L was created based on ergonomics, comfort and traceability research.  It combines the PIPETMAN Classic™ legendary robustness, a newly designed body, and state-of-the-art internal mechanism for secure locking of the volume.   This unique patented volume locking system fully disconnects the operating rod from the counter assembly during pipetting phases so once locked into pace (with just a push of the thumbwheel!), the volume will not be accidentally changed.

Anthony Sutter, Cell Biology Scientist with Proteos, was presented with his free PIPETMAN P100L, by Ryan Luther Gilson Sales & Service Representative, last month.  Proteos is a small company housed in the Southwest Michigan Innovation Center in Kalamazoo, MI.  The company specializes in protein production, expression and purification.  The new Gilson PIPETMAN was a much appreciated addition to his lab and will be used in several techniques they employ:

·         Preparing and loading samples to run SDS-PAGE/Western blot
·         Preparing samples for plate based protein assays (96-well)
·         Performing mammalian and insect cell transfections

Thank you to everyone who registered on www.PipetmanL.com for the chance to win the free PIPETMAN L.  Register for our bi-monthly newsletters for more opportunities to win PIPETMAN products from Gilson by clicking here.
