As the leading manufacturer of liquid handling systems, we continue to supply the best, most precise and innovative equipment to professionals in the bio and life sciences professions. Beginning with an innovative breakthrough in 1976 when we introduced the first Pipet-Aid pipette controller, we began blazing a trail and changed pipetting in the laboratory forever. We continued to design and manufacture high-quality products that solidified our place as an industry leader.
Drummond Scientific Company, located outside of Philadelphia, is a vertically integrated company that leverages more than 70 years of experience to maintain its position as an elite developer of custom, precision, microvolume liquid transfer devices. Through the years, Drummond developed the gold standard of precision liquid handling devices for
the lab, the handheld Pipet-Aid®, the bench-top Pipet-Aid®, the Nanoject Controller and The Positive Displacement Microdispenser. These products are used in laboratories across the globe and are recognized for durability and reliability.
From pioneering the charge for a more efficient way to measure liquids to working with early-stage companies to offer design and manufacturing, we develop and manufacture products known for quality and performance.
We apply our unique manufacturing capability and technical expertise to specialized products and requirements to work through collaborations and investments for those without the resources. Our services help solve unique challenges with custom supply capillary glass and plastic tubing, injection molded, plastic components, and electronic controls.

Both units utilize the same glass capillaries for pulling micropipettes. Due to the new improved method of securing the micropipette, smaller tips can be pulled and utilized on the Nanoject III. No O-rings to wear out. A micro “chuck” is used, and it simplifies attachment of the micropipette once backfilled with oil. The Nanoject III’s auto HOMING feature will eliminate the need to “rehome the unit as in the Nanoject II. This can reduce, if not totally eliminate, jamming of the plunger. Now available for the Nanoject II is the new Digital Control Box which has all the functionality of the original control box but now features a user friendly, easy to read touchscreen.
