Drummond Pipet-Aid: Expertise & Innovation for Precise Liquid Handling Applications
Drummond Pipet Aid – Leading Pipette Controller
The Drummond Pipet-Aid is the world’s first motorized pipette controller. It was created and developed by Drummond Scientific as an alternative to mouth pipetting. A patented, easy-to-use volume control mechanism permits precise fluid intake and delivery. A check valve protects against accidental fluid intake into the handle and the optional Tissue Culture Nosepiece will prevent cross-contamination due to over-pipetting. A special filtration unit for use with biohazardous materials is also available.
With a unique, ergonomic design built for hours of comfortable, single hand operation, the Drummond Pipet-Aid reduces stress from pipetting on your arm and forearm. This pipette controller was introduced in 1972 and single-handedly changed laboratory pipetting applications forever. Now, Drummond is synonymous with the terms pipet aid, controller, pipet aid filters and microdispensor. Durability and leading-class quality are two characteristics of the Drummond Scientific product line. This reputation for excellence and reliability is one of the reasons Drummond Pipet Aid is such a trusted product in laboratories all over the world.
The legacy of Drummond Pipet Aid continues to grow with the recent expansion of the product line which now includes;
- Drummond Pipet Aid XP2 (Pipette.com Part # DP-501 / Drummond Part # 4-000-501)
- Drummond Pipet Aid XL (Pipette.com Part # DP-105 / Drummond Part # 4-000-105)
These models are an example of Drummond Scientific’s commitment to understanding and resolving common laboratory application challenges. The Portable Drummond Pipet Aid XP2 is smaller and more lightweight version of the original Pipet Aid. The Pipet Aid XP2 model comes with speed adjustment. Each button has three flow speeds; fast, medium and slow, to provide optimal flow rate performance and control for various liquid handling applications and needs across a variety of laboratory tasks.
The Drummond Pipet Aid XL is designed for those laboratory specialists who are required to work under a fume hood. The Drummond Portable Pipet Aid XL has a longer handle which reduces the amount of arm lifting necessary to carry out the same procedure as with a conventional pipette controller. The ergonomic design includes an adjustable sliding hand rest and a removable stand. The Portable Pipet Aid XL also features a quieter, more powerful pump, and an EZ Grip nosepiece.
