Looking for a quality source for affordable laboratory equipment? From capillary glass and adhesives up to micromanipulators, pumps and microscopes, we offer the full range for the well stocked scientific laboratory.
Whether you are making your own electrodes or using ours, we have a variety of microelectrode holders, along with a variety of accessories for filling glass micropipettes. We even have opitical quality glass bottom dishes for delicate cell work under a microscope.
Every laboratory needs quality appliances, whether it's in a school or research facility. We offer a range of appliances for a variety of applications.
When you are making your own glass micropipettes and microelectrodes, you need a few reliable appliances you can count on, including a puller for custom pulling your own pipettes, a microforge for fire polishing and a beveler for putting precise angles on your tips.
Micromanipulators are used when precision work is conducted under a microscope. A micropipette, electrode or probe can be mounted on a micromanipulator and move as little as a micron at a time. This tool can be used for in vitro fertilization, patch clamp experimentation, extracellular recording, microinjection and any application requiring fine mechanical placement (resolution). In addition to micromanipulators, WPI offers tilt bases, piezo translators and a variety of stands.
Micromanipulators can be broken out into three broad categories: Manual, Manual/Motorized and Motorized.
Microscopes are a standard laboratory tool, but purchasing the right microscope for a particular application can be a challenge. First, consider how you will use the instrument. Are you looking at slides, dissecting a small animal or performing a surgery? (The application dictates the necessary working distance and power of magnification.) What kind of a stand will you be using? (Boom stand, articulating arm or post stand) Will the microscope be used in a classroom setting? (A trinocular scope offers the option of including a camera.) Will you need a camera? (A camera allows you to project the microscope image on a PC or TV or to take still images.) The answers to these questions help you determine the required working distance, level of magnification, type of mounting stand and hardware required.

Pipetters and Tips
Stands and Clamps
A pipetter, often called a pipette, are used to deliver precise volumes of liquids in a laboratory setting. Below is some information on selecting the appropriate pipetter for your use. WPI offers a variety of pippetters.
We offer a variety of pumps for many different laboratory application. Compare our syringe pumps, peristaltic pumps, pneumatic pumps and ultra micropumps.
