This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series Evolution of the Pipette

By the year 2000, technology was rapidly evolving creating the landscape for improvement in all facets of science. This resulted in the Pipette being revolutionized even further to align to the technology available at the time. In this article we look at CTS and what VistaLab Technologies did to overcome this problem. Evolution of the Pipette – 2002 Pipettes already had evolved a very long … Read More

By the year 1974, the Pipette has seen major improvements evolving as new problems arose. By the year 1984, although the design and basic principals of the Pipette remained relatively in-tact, there were still concerns raised by Lab researchers relating to cross-contamination and bacteria. In our opinion, 1984 was the year that definitively set the precedence for the ‘Pipette of the future’. Evolution … Read More

Last week we covered some of the challenges experienced by Lab researchers and how one of the researchers, Heinrich Schnitger, modified the Pipette to overcome some of those challenges. In this article we jump to 1974 where there are rapid jumps in scientific technology and skills which required the Pippete to measure and dispense more accurately than ever before. Evolution of the Pipette … Read More

In our previous article, we covered the beginning of the Pipette. This article looks at the next noteworthy development which took place in 1958. The Evolution of Pipettes – 1958 While developing optical enzyme assays, lab researchers faced accuracy challenges while attempting to dispense microliter liquid volumes as well as handle the large volume of pipetting that was required for this task. One … Read More

Evolution of The Pipette – 1950

The Pipette in 1950
This entry is part 1 of 6 in the series Evolution of the Pipette

We came across an absolutely outstanding article written by John Buie which covers the detailed evolution of the pipette starting all the way back in 1950. It was so interesting that we thought it best to share this information with you. As such we’ll be posting a series of posts over the next couple of weeks detailing how the Pipette has revolutionized over … Read More
