Dear Netters!

We are looking forward to buy new pipetters, too. Are there any
additional to companies mentioned above, like Pipetti from Labsystems.
First tests showed that they`re even more exact than Gilsons. Our
PCR-people said that`s possible to pipette amounts smaller than 1 ul,
which is rather difficult with a Gilson. Further you can use all common
tips, but this never has been a problem with Gilson anyway.
Please e-mail any proposals, and thank you in advance,
