We have a range of micro-pipette pullers to suit various applications. All our microelectrode pullers produce pipettes using two pulling stages and as a result they are easy to setup and operate.
Narishige PC-100 Micropipette/Microelectrode Puller
Like the obsolete PC-10 puller, the PC-100 pipette puller features an automatic stopper control which makes two stage pulls simpler to operate without user intervention. Similar in application and specifications to the PC-10 patch pipette puller, the PC-100 is simple and easy to use and set-up is easier than ever. It features a digital display which clearly shows status and setting; the heating value can be adjusted as required, even after the needle is placed in the heater coil; the acrylic cover closes securely; the elapsed time (from the “START” to end.) is displayed; the slider unit is protected from dust and debris.
Narishige PN-31 Micropipette/Microelectrode Puller
The successor to the discontinued PN-30 needle puller, the PN-31 produces sharp microneedles with tips of less than 1 micron. Accurate electric platinum heater adjustment is complemented by precise control of the force and timing of both magnetic pulls. This ensures a constant, high quality reproduction of micropipettes. Settings for the heater and both magnets are easily performed by reading the levels shown of the digital display and adjusting the dial accordingly.
Narishige PE-22 Micropipette/Microelectrode Puller
An improved version of the PE-2 and PE-21 sharp microelectrode pullers, the PE-22 is designed to produce sharp microelectrodes required for measuring the electrical potential of cells in biological experiments. It is a fully automatic, vertical type instrument suitable for pulling thick and thin glass tubes (1mm-4mm) and ideal for producing long and comparatively solid electrodes required for deep penetration. PE-22 is also capable of producing multi-barrel electrodes.
HEKA PIP6 Micropipette Puller
The PIP6 pipette puller makes use of temperature-controlled heating filament resulting in improved reproducibility of pipettes.
Pipettes are produced by a 2-step vertical pull using two independently selected temperatures. Different spacer disks determine the individual pull length and allow for the production of pipettes of different dimensions.
