December Pipette of the Month: The Brandtech Transferpette S
For the coming months, the pipette experts at TTE Laboratories will isolate a few excellent pipettes that qualify for the title: Pipette of the Month.
While you can use these pipettes any month out of the year, we like suggesting tools you can depend on for excellent results.
