Vertical Micropipette Puller (Sutter Instrument)
Sutter Instrument  P-30  Vertical Micropipette Puller



The Model P-30 vertical micropipette puller is designed for the fabrication of basic micropipettes and patch-type pipettes. It will pull micropipettes with tip diameters as small as 0.3µm and moderate taper lengths (10 to 15mm). Using an included patching attachment, the P-30 will pull the standard double pull patch-type pipette. Used with thin wall glass capillaries it will generate pipettes or needles suitable for microinjection studies. The P-30 is ideal for student laboratories and other situations which call for an economical, reliable pipette pulling device.

The P-30 is available with either platinum/iridium or nichrome filament. Platinum is more efficient at heating and cooling but is more prone to damage. While nichrome is suitable for many applications, platinum is recommended for large diameter, thick wall and aluminosilicate glass and applications requiring shorter taper lengths.
