The Eppendorf Pipet Helper is designed for use with glass and plastic pipets to aid filling and dispensing. Vacuum is applied by a slide lever, reportedly eliminating hand stress caused by the conventional "squeeze bulb" apparatus. The product enables one-handed control of aspiration, dispensing, and vacuum. Features include a lightweight handle; single rocker-switch for control of aspiration and delivery; and a disposable, in-line filter. The device holds 0.1 ml to 100 ml pipets. The filter
