Oocyte ICSI Zygote Two Cell

General Information

Standard Specifications
Our range of standard pipettes has been designed to produce optimal results for all micromanipulation techniques, including intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), embryo biopsy, polar body biopsy and assisted hatching.
The range includes:
  • Holding pipettes
  • Injection pipettes
  • Embryo biopsy pipettes
  • Zona drilling pipettes
  • Zona cutting (PZD) pipettes
Standard pipettes all have a 1.0 mm tip length and 30 degree bend, but they are also available without any bends (straight) or as custom pipettes with other bend angles.
Injection and bevelled embryo biopsy pipettes are manufactured for both right and left handed use.
Custom Specifications
If our standard pipettes do not suit your requirements, we can manufacture custom pipettes to your specifications. We maintain stocks of many custom pipettes, so we may already have suitable pipettes in stock. If not, please contact us and provide a custom specification form. We will evaluate your requirements and then contact you as soon as possible.
Pipettes for Other Applications
We also manufacture pipettes for other applications, such as micromanipulation of non-human gametes and embryos, DNA injection into cells, stem cell research and other specialized research applications in the biological and physical sciences. These may be listed on this website as custom pipettes. If not, please contact us and provide a custom specification form.
Precision Engineering
TPC pipettes are precision crafted in Australia to exacting standards by highly trained, full-time specialist technicians who take great pride in their work.
Every stage from materials evaluation through manufacture, testing and packaging is meticulously supervised by scientists with decades of experience in reproductive medicine and micromanipulation.
Pipettes are manufactured from high quality 1.0 mm (OD) borosilicate glass capillaries which are cleaned, extensively rinsed in 18.2 MΩ per cm ultrapure water, and then heat-treated to destroy endotoxins, RNA, DNA and enzymes.
Strict rejection criteria are used during all stages of manufacture.
Pipettes which do not strictly conform to dimensional specifications and standards of cleanliness are rejected without compromise.
TPC pipettes are single packed and gamma sterilised, ready for use.
Every unit package and outer package has a gamma indicator dot which changes colour from yellow to red after irradiation.
We can also supply non-sterile pipettes for research applications.
Pipettes are packaged in protective holders, which are colour coded for easy identification of the different types.
Pipettes are supplied in boxes of 10.
