A micropipette is a lab apparatus for measuring and transferring liquid samples. Micropipettes come in many different varieties, with typical volumes from 1 μL up to 1000 μL. The user inserts the tip of the micropipette into the desired sample and presses down on the plunger to extract the sample. A micropipette can be calibrated to measure in precise increments, making it an essential tool for scientists and lab technicians.
An aspirator is a piece of lab equipment that’s used to suck fluids such as water and wet chemicals out of a dry container like bottles, dishes, or teacups. They use suction to remove the liquid by enveloping the inside surface so all the air is eliminated and then releasing it. Subsequently, aspirators can also be hand-operated which means they squeeze and release your fingers every time you want them to suck/release air. What types of micropipettes are there?
