getting started with the pul-1000 puller

The PUL-1000 is a microprocessor controlled, four-stage, horizontal puller for making glass micropipettes or microelectrodes. Here is a quick overview to get you started quickly.



Quick Start Setup

  1. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet. An LED light on the power supply illuminated when the unit is connected to power.
  2. Plug the power cord into the rear panel of the PUL-1000. Then, the power switch on the side panel illuminates.
  3. Press the Power button to turn on the display.
  4. To open the glass capillary clamps, place your thumb under the clamp and depress the release button with your index finger. This allows the carriages to move freely.
  5. Push the carriages together toward the center.
  6. Install the silicone glass capillary clamp pads matching the outer diameter (OD) of the glass capillary, by sliding them into the clamp pad spots on the clamps.
  7. Mount the glass capillary onto the carriage and secure it with the glass clamps.
  8. On the LCD display, choose the correct sequence. If you do not have a sequence yet, choose one from the program storage.

NOTE: Program sequence 00 is designed for OD 1.0 mm borosilicate capillary glass (WPI# 1B100-4). Refer to the PUL-1000 Cookbook containing the installed program sequence.

  1. Close the cover.
  2. Press START, and the puller will do the rest. Each pull results in two identical micropipettes. Refer to the PUL-1000 Cookbook for details about the factory installed programs.
