Pipette Repairs

Pipettes are one of the most commonly used instruments used in the scientific and medical fields. These instruments work by aspirating a volume of liquid from one source, and releasing the specific amount to another container. Pipettes were designed to transfer precise amounts of liquid between one or more containers. They come in various types and designs with different levels of accuracy. Sometimes, your instrument may need to undergo a pipette repair to deliver the most accurate measurements.

In order to achieve the most precise results with your work, a high degree of accuracy is required. Don’t let your work suffer because of a faulty pipette!

A small difference can make a big difference.

COMPLIANCE:  Pipette calibrations performed in an environmentally controlled lab with state of the art equipment and software.

CONVENIENCE:  Pipettes picked up and dropped off right to your lab on a timely basis.

Signs you need pipette repair:

  1. It feels sticky
  2. It does not aspirate or dispense evenly
  3. It does not aspirate at all
  4. It does not power on or loses battery power quickly
  5. Your results just do not seem right

If your pipette qualifies for one or more of these symptoms, it’s time to call in the experts! Here at Raeyco, we provide pipette repair services for your medical and laboratory pipette needs.

Types of pipettes we service:

  • Micropipettes
