The Global Name for Transfer Pipettes

Available in over 50 designs, Pastettes are flexible, unbreakable, transfer or Pasteur pipettes and are ideal for a multitude of tasks.

From quick and easy liquid transfers to precise control for small sample handling, Pastettes can be used for sampling from bottles or delivering to micro-cuvettes. Whatever your application, a choice of known drop volumes and specific tip designs allow you to select the Pastette that exactly meets your needs.

Availability in handy non-sterile bulk packs and sterile packs of 10, 20 or single wrapped pipettes offers complete flexibility.

Plus don’t forget our custom design service if you ever need a bespoke format pipette.

Key Features

Pastette® Means High Quality, Smart Design and a Wide Range

  • Length

Unless otherwise indicated Pastette® illustrations are shown as ‘life-size’. From the shortest (36mm) to the longest (300mm), you can select the length that allows you to reach into deep vessels or delicately draw fluid from small wells.

  • Tip Design

Alternative tip sizes allow you to choose smaller drop sizes in a variety of tip lengths, where work with small volumes and delicate applications is critical. Wide bore designs are ideal for viscous fluids or whole cells reducing shearing to a minimum.

  • Bulb Draw

Each Pastette in the range is shown with the maximum liquid volume that can be drawn in a single transfer allowing you to select the one most suitable to your typical volume transfers.

  • Drop Volume

All Pastettes are accurate to ±10% of the stated specification allowing you to deliver μl drops of known volumes.

  • Graduations

Graduated Pastettes allow you to quickly and easily deliver measured volumes.


Pastette®- Liquid Transfer Pipettes to Suit Every Application

Many procedures within life sciences, industrial research, testing, clinical and general purpose laboratory applications require the transfer of small amounts of liquids between vessels.

Thousands of scientists worldwide rely on plastic transfer or Pasteur pipettes to achieve this. A safe and convenient, unbreakable alternative to glass pipettes, they are available in numerous shapes and sizes for use in multiple tasks. Whilst the principle of these simple dropper pipettes remains the same, their designs have evolved significantly over the years to improve performance and ease of use in specific applications.

Alpha Laboratories has over 30 years of expertise in plastic pipette manufacture and has worked with scientists to develop the Pastette® brand specifically to meet user needs.

Whether sampling from bottles or delivering to micro-cuvettes, a wide choice of sizes, known drop volumes and tip designs allows you to select the Pastette to best suit your application.
