The microprocessor-controlled PMP-102 is designed to pull a pipette horizontally, producing two identical micropipettes. Different kinds of pipettes can be pulled repeatedly using the preset program sequences. You can create your own patch clamp electrodes, intracellular electrodes, injection micropipette and micro-needles using preset sequences.
Exclusive Optical-Digital Taper Measurement
Instead of the mechanical tip length setting like other pipette pullers, there is an exclusive optical-digital ruler in the PMP-102 to apply precise taper length settings, and for real-time measurement and control. With this feature, you can handle taper pulling precisely and easily. Equipped with a powerful computerize tip sensing function, the puller can automatically finish the tip pulling. You can pull the ideal tip every time.
Computerize Real-Time Feedback Heater Control
The PMP-102 includes an advanced microcontroller to perform real-time heater monitoring and control. When you select a heating level, the microcontroller measures the actual heating power applied during a pull. The real-time measurement is displayed, and the feedback to the control unit dynamically adjusts the power to match your setpoint. As a result, the puller always provides precise heating power, despite variables like thermal/electrical changes. When the heating level is set to AUTO, the heater automatically determines the melting point for different glass pipettes. The microcomputer control ensures smart, reliable heating.
Programmable, Savable Sequences
There are 25 manufacturer/user programmable pulling sequences with 18 steps in each sequence. You may easily program different pipette tip sizes, tip lengths and tip shapes in different sequences for a variety of applications. Time and length count, heat level, heat control and action parameters can be individually set in each step.
Pneumatic Pulling Force and Compact Size
Other pipette pullers use gravity or magnetic fields as the pulling force. The PMP-102 applies precisely controlled pneumatic pressure as the pulling force, which gives more control, plus even and consistent dragging characteristics. With double horizontal pulling, the PMP-102 can pull two identical injection tips or microelectrode tips at the same time. The PMP-102 is compact, requiring little bench space. And, it precisely and automatically performs multi-step pulling without manual interruption. A precision micro-linear ball bearing rail and advanced pneumatic components are used to provide no fault pulling movement. A simple 4x4 keypad and a full information display LCD let you easily control and monitor the pulling parameters directly. Parameters include sequences, steps, time, timing, heater level, heater control, tip length and actions. The heater power control and action time count up or down in real-time on the display.
With the versatility of the intelligent PMP-102, pulling an ideal micropipette is no longer an uncertainty of hand skill, but a reproducible, automatic process.
The PMP-102 pipette puller is well tested and comes with pre-installed programs. The User Manual includes sample pictures along with the characteristics of the pipettes you can expect from each program. Select your sequence and press START. Save time and money by using presets. If you can't find exactly what you need in the presets, you can use the presets as templates for creating new programs.
