We use Gilson Pipetman. They are accurate and durable. The oval barrel
fits smaller hands. People with larger hands tend to prefer newer
models with round barrels.

Don't get Finnpipette - they are not as accurate, and although they are
supposed to fit standard tips, if you're using filtertips it won't work.
They are also much harder on your hands.
