Another source of glass micropipettes which we use in our lab is Sutter
Instrument Co.  in California.  All I have is the phone number: (415)
883-0128, but they probably have a web site as well.  We also use one of
their programmable micropipette pullers which does a great job of pulling
different sized tips.  I hope this gives you some help.
