Next Generation Micropipette Puller

Developed through years of experience with the Flaming/Brown style micropipette pullers and infused with leading edge technology, Sutter is proud to introduce the P-1000 micropipette puller. The most obvious new feature is the color touchscreen display that provides an intuitive and full-featured interface.

The extensive library of programs found in the popular Sutter Cookbook has been incorporated into the P-1000 puller and is available to the user via the touchscreen display. You need only specify the glass, filament, and type of pipette you require and a suitable program will be identified and available for installation. This takes the guesswork out of pipette pulling and simplifies programming.

The Pre-heat mode actively heats and controls the jaw temperature and assures that the jaws have reached a specific temperature before the glass is pulled. This can increase the stability of the program from pull to pull. Copy and paste functions assure that programs can be easily written and the line repeat mode simplifies multi-line programming. A safe heat mode is an additional feature that helps the user avoid using heat settings that might damage or burn out the filament. When the safe heat mode is turned on, the puller will “check” the installed heat and alert the user when a given heat value is too low or too high in relation to the ramp value. User notes can be added to each program for annotating important information.

New features for the P-1000 include: diagnostic testing of all puller components, built-in error detection of air pressure loss or filament burnout, easy access to ramp test, measurement of jaw temperature, and access to previous pull results with the heat on times for each cycle of the program. In addition, help topics are pre-loaded to assist with on-site troubleshooting and the built-in glossary includes text, pictures, and diagrams explaining the terms used in micropipette fabrication. A rotary dial is offered as an alternative to the keypad for numerical entry.

Every Sutter Instrument P-1000 Micropipette Puller undergoes a stringent quality control procedure. Finished pullers are run in for 48 hours to expose any issues that might lead to premature failure. During the run-in process, the pull cycle is triggered over 2800 times. After this, seven pipettes are pulled and examined in a scanning electron microscope to ensure good quality pipettes are being made. Only after passing all these tests, the puller is shipped to the customer. We perform this test on every single P-1000 Puller we sell to guarantee the quality. Our other pullers, micromanipulators, light sources, imaging products, microscopes and amplifier systems undergo similarly demanding quality control procedures before they ship to you.

With over 100 collective years of experience, our product managers are always available by phone or email to help you program your Sutter puller to help you get the pipettes you want. No other micropipette manufacturer has as much experience and expertise.
