Gilson’s Microman is a fully adjustable positive displacement pipette which uses disposable capillary pistons to ensure accurate, safe and fast contamination free pipetting.
The Microman’s syringe like capillary pistons eliminate the air space between the pipette body and the sample, protecting it against contamination and any trace carry over. Sample integrity is essential for procedures such as PCR, forensics, cancer diagnostics and genetic disease testing.
Even viscous or high density liquids such as glycerol solutions, detergents, oil or syrup can be easily pipetted with accuracy and precision.
The risk of pipette damage from aggressive solvents is eliminated as neither the sample or its vapours can not come in contact with the Microman internal parts. Similarly there is no risk of contaminating the pipette when working with hazardous materials such as radioactive compounds.
The Microman is available in six models from M10 (1-10µl) up to M1000 (100-1000 µl). Microman is lightweight (only 50g) and designed to adapt to all users, right or left handed. The Microman is easy to hold, has extra support through the gentle hooked top and the handle is insulated to prevent hand-warming effect.
The Microman requires little maintenance, as there is no need to recalibrate it when the piston capillary is changed. Capillary pistons are available in pre-assembled, sterilized and racked models.
