The Ergonomic Design of the Drummond Pipet-Aid® XL is Proven to Reduce Neck and Upper Arm Strain

The Longer, Lightweight Handle Enables a Lower,

More Comfortable Arm Position

 

Pipetting under a hood doesn't need to be a pain in the neck. The Drummond Portable Pipet-Aid® XL has a longer handle to reduce the amount of arm lift required to perform the same operation as with a conventional pipettor. The ergonomic design includes an adjustable sliding hand rest and a removable stand which enables the unit to be set down without contaminating the pipet.

IconWhat Pipet-Aid® XL Users Are Saying

"I've been using a Drummond Pipet-Aid® in cell culture hoods for 20 years. When we got a Pipet-Aid® XL in our lab, I wasn't sure what to make of it. Why change the good old Pipet-Aid? As soon as I used it during a long experiment in the cell culture hood, I was sold. It's angled so that you can set your elbow down and continue to pipet correctly. This is so helpful during long experiments when normally your arm would get fatigued. We use it with the attachable stand so it can be set down with the pipet still attached. We love this pipet in our lab! Pipet-Aid® XL rocks."

— Laurie Davidson, Ph.D. (Texas A&M University)

"We purchased several Pipet-Aid® XL units to accommodate a range of people of different sizes culturing cells. Having the longer handle allowed us to reach into flasks and bottles much easier than the traditional shorter Pipet-Aids. The handle of the Pipet-Aid® XL made it much easier to read the pipets without straining and twisting."

— Joe Provost (Professor University of San Diego)

"I have to do many bioassays, which involved a lot of pipetting. Through the years I had developed a pinched nerve and carpal tunnel. The Physical Therapist told me that I needed to support my elbow when I pipet. The Pipet-Aid® XL is ergonomical, with a longer handle and lightweight. With the longer handle I can rest my elbow on the front counter top of the hood, this reduced most of the strain on my shoulder and hand during pipetting."

— Susana Pang, Ph.D. (Laboratory of Cellular Oncology at the National Institutes of Health)

"The Drummond Pipet-Aid® XL is the only pipettor I would want to use while working in the tissue culture hood. I spend a lot of time aliquoting various reagents, so the Drummond Pipet-Aid® XL design works great for this purpose. The Pipet-Aid fits comfortably in my hand, and since it has a longer design, I do not have to hold my arm up so high. My arm has never gotten tired while using it."

— Kara Benninger (Indiana University School of Medicine)
