(PLI-10) Low Cost Pico-Injector

Product Summary

The PLI-10 Pico-Injector reliably delivers ejections from femtoliters to nanoliters through micropipettes by applying a regulated pressure for a digitally set period of time.

  • Femtoliter to microliter injections
  • Digital readouts for injection pressure, time, and count
  • Reliable optically encoded circuit for injection time set
  • Easy to use

The PLI-10 Pico-Injector reliably delivers ejections from femtoliters to nanoliters through micropipettes by applying a regulated pressure for a digitally set period of time.

Pressure to the pipette is controlled precisely through a multi-turn regulator and is reported digitally for reproducibility. Injection time is set using an optically encoded circuit that permits both fine and coarse settings from a single control knob. System timing can be controlled in three ways: push button, foot switch, or external trigger.

Typical applications include large volume injections, extracellular sample delivery, and Xenopus oocyte injections.

Selection Guideline

The PLI-10 comes with a foot switch. Pipette holders are sold separately and can be viewed on the "Pricing & Ordering" tab at the top of this page.

All PLI-90A's require a micromanipulator and support stand, which must be purchased separately.
For labs lacking bottled gas or pressurized air, the AIR-1 compressor is available.
