Gilson is proud to announce the release of PIPETMAN® L, the latest innovation from Gilson PIPETMAN®, the pipetting standard for nearly 40 years. PIPETMAN L is an adjustable volume pipette that features a Gilson patented volume locking system. This GLP feature, among other features, meets the current needs of intensive pipette users who desire accuracy and precision without sacrificing comfort. Once you lock the thumbwheel, the operating rod is no longer in contact with the counter assembly which is responsible for changing the volume; as you pipette, the volume cannot be accidentally changed – a concern in some manual pipettes.
PIPETMAN L boasts the most natural and patented tip ejection system that reduces forces through a pulley system offering low tip ejection forces with any brand of tip. An adjustable tip ejector button has further improved the comfort of PIPETMAN L by adapting to both right- and left-handed users.
PIPETMAN L incorporates a newly engineered body yet keeps the legendary robustness, accuracy and precision of the PIPETMAN Classic. An improved design with an enhanced hook feature reduces tension and fits naturally in your hand allowing users to increase productivity and pipette longer while using a lightweight and comfortable pipette. The body consists of polypropylene giving an excellent compromise between lightness and robustness. The piston assembly is composed of new seals, lighter springs, and high quality lubricant, drastically improving the pipetting, purge, and ejection forces and reducing the risk of Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI).
Offering two tip ejector styles, plastic and stainless steel, PIPETMAN L is perfect for both corrosive and non-corrosive samples. Both tip ejector styles are equipped with a clip ejector for convenient access to serviceable parts.
PIPETMAN L is available in a full volume range from 0.2µL-10mL in eight single channel models. GLP features include volume-locking mechanism, a traceable serial number, color-coded push-button that corresponds to matching Gilson tip packaging, and unique 2D identification code. Like other PIPETMAN families, PIPETMAN L is fitted with a universal tip holder that allows for a secure fit of most leading brands of tips, so there is no need for a dedicated tip brand. You asked, we delivered; comfortable pipette to help you increase your daily throughput without forfeiting accuracy and precision.
