The Global name for Transfer and Pasteur Pipettes

Celebrating 45 Years of Simple, Efficient, Liquid Transfers

Back in 1978 Alpha Laboratories pioneered the introduction of plastic disposable transfer pipettes (pasteur pipettes).
Branded Pastette®, the initial standard pipette (LW4000) is still available today!
Pastette, the original and still the best!

Responding to Customer Needs Since 1978

Since its introduction users have shown a preference for the convenience and safety of Pastette plastic disposable transfer pipettes. They have become renowned for their soft responsive bulb that makes them extremely easy to control.

Recognising their versatility, many customers have requested modifications to the original design to meet their own specific application needs.

Thus began the journey of the ever evolving and expanding Pastette range that has now developed to include over 50 standard designs. In addition, many bespoke designs have been created for kit manufacturers and other users.

Pastette® Product Categories

Graduated Pastettes

For measured transfers of 1, 2, 3 or 5ml in fractions of 0.25ml to 1.0ml. Ideal for preparation of fixatives and stains, aliquoting and other drop by drop work.

Non-Graduated Pastettes

Ideal for liquid transfers which do not need to be measured. With a variety of shapes and sizes they can be used for a multitude of applications including transferring supernatant, adding reagents or extracting samples.

Fine Tip Pastettes
For careful control and small volume transfers. Ideal for supernatant removal, slide preparation and gel loading.
Micro Pastettes
Micro Pastettes have a long straight stem rather than the tapered design which most pipettes of this type have, enabling easier access to tall narrow sample containers.
Dual Bulb Exact Volume Pastettes
Designed to dispense a known volume of liquid. Simply squeeze the upper bulb to fill, and squeeze again to dispense the exact volume.
Paddle Pastettes
Paddle Pastettes have an additional paddle on top of the bulb which can be used for mixing. They are ideal for use with latex agglutination tests, pregnancy tests and blood grouping cards.
Aspirator Pastettes
The flexible, unbreakable, safe alternative to aspirating with glass pipettes on vacuum lines or with pipetting aids.
