Lighter, more compact pump
Specifically designed to minimize operator fatigue, the new Portable Pipet-Aid XP is smaller and lighter weight than the original Portable Pipet-Aid. It accepts most pipets from 1 to 100 mL. Depressing the top button fills the pipet, depressing the lower button empties it. The flow rate is proportional to the amount each button is depressed.
Each button has three speeds, F Fast, M Medium, S Slow. The medium speed is suitable for most routine techniques. Fast can be used for rapid filling of large pipets or breaking up cell clumps. Slow is ideal when using small pipets or when more precise delivery is required. The gravity drain model substitutes a gravity drain (G) function for the fast (F) mode on the dispense button.
The XP incorporates a Tissue Culture Nosepiece which features a unique filter element. The TC filter prevents air from passing in either direction if it becomes wet, alerting the user to possible contamination of the rubber insert.
The XP is powered by a nickel metal hydride (Ni-MH) 9 volt rechargeable battery and is supplied with holster / wall bracket, 110 V recharger and 4 replacement filters. Weight: 7.5 oz.
