This article was published in Lab Manager Magazine in September 2009 as a full magazine spread. A part of the Evolution series, the article centered on a crucial laboratory instrument called the pipette.
This article documents the evolution of the pipette dating back to 1950 when pipettes were constructed in the lab through heating a glass tube over a Bunsen burner while pulling at one end until a capillary can be pulled, to the creation of the modern-day mechanical pipette. The article also traces the development of different kinds of pipettes such as the piston-stroke pipette, the mechanical adjustable pipette and the first Ovation BioNatural Pipette.
This editorial article was made possible through a collaborative effort by the team at SCI Global Services Inc. and was authored by our President, John Buie.
