Different Types of Serological Pipettes

Understanding Serological Pipettes


Serology is the study of serum and its uses. In this case, serum transfer pipettes are the pipettes used to carry and transfer serum and other liquids. One major advantage of serum transfer pipettes is that they also aid in measurement. This is done by setting the scales/marks on the side of the pipette, which are used to measure the amount of serum or liquid in the pipette. They are usually measured in milliliters. Serological pipettes are used either for dispensing the fluid or for aspirating it. They are very popular because they allow for very precise measurements.


Understanding Different Types of Serological Pipettes


There are many different types of serum transfer pipettes. They are usually made of high-quality polymers or plastics or, in many cases, glass. These materials are used for sterilization and safety purposes. Sterile serological pipettes are also designed for single-use.


Open-end Pipettes


Open-end pipettes have their rear ends exposed. Therefore, they are very suitable for measuring high-viscosity liquids. Because they are open-ended, the release rate of the pipette is very fast. This allows for thick liquids such as paint and oil to flow freely through the pipette. These serum transfer pipettes also have a sterilizing effect. They do this by containing a fiber filter plug. This reduces the chance of foreign particles contaminating the fluid. The individual packing serological pipette are tightly packed in separate plastics.


Bacterial Pipettes


Bacterial products are used when dealing with substances that contain bacteria, such as milk or other dairy products. These serum transfer pipettes, also known as milk pipettes, can be used for various measurements. They are usually made of polystyrene. These pipettes are highly sensitive, non-thermogenic and disposable. They are sterilized with gamma rays and individually wrapped in plastic film to protect them from any damage or contamination. They also have fiber filters to prevent the enclosed liquid or fluid from becoming contaminated.


Droppers


For pure liquid transfer, the best option is droppers. They are completely transparent with no scales or marks on top. They are also disposable, non-thermogenic and made of polystyrene. They are designed specifically for mixing fluids during vacuum or pipette suction processes. These serum transfer pipettes are wrapped in heat-molded high-quality plastic and individually wrapped to minimize the possibility of contamination. Like the bacterial pipettes, they are also sterilized with gamma rays.
