Portable Pipet-Aid® XP Pipette Controller

Comfort and quality in one user-friendly device.

Robust Functionality in a Comfortably Small Package

Take the pain out of laboratory work with the ergonomic Portable Pipet-Aid® XP. Designed to alleviate operator fatigue, the lightweight, compact Portable Pipet-Aid XP offers state-of-the-art functionality in a small, convenient size.

Powered by an easily accessible 9 volt (Ni-MH) rechargeable battery, the convenient device accepts most pipettes from 1 to 100 mL. And the EZ Grip nosepiece with double membrane filter prevents cross-contamination.

Three-speed settings for pipet filler and dispenser modes provide precise control and accuracy. Fast speed can deliver up to 50 mL in 5 seconds and can be used for rapid filling of large pipets or breaking up cell clumps. Slow speed is ideal when using small pipettes or when more precise delivery is required. A gravity drain model is available which substitutes a gravity drain function for the fast mode on the dispense button.

Holster-type wall bracket and removable stand included.

  • Lightweight
  • Three-speed settings
  • Ergonomic Pipetting with Precision
  • Made in the U.S.A.

What Portable Pipet-Aid® XP Pipette Controller Users Say

The New Nanoject III Is Now Available!

Nanoject II vs. Nanoject III Comparison

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.
