Advanced Pipetting at Your Fingertips
Pipetman Ultra is the latest member of the
Pipetman family, sharing many of the same
characteristics, robustness, accuracy and precision
with additional improvements and innovations.
Ultra Comfort in Daily Use
• Ergonomic design fits naturally
in your hand and requires less
effort to use. Less force is needed
to set the volume, to pipette and
to eject the tip, which makes for
smoother pipetting on a daily
basis.
• Quick volume setting
Only ten turns are needed to
change from the minimum to the
nominal volume setting.
• Easy ejection & higher tip
compatibility
Adjustable tip-ejector
stroke (patented) for maximum
compatibility with tips and for
improved comfort when
ejecting tips. Fitted to all
models including
U5000 and U10ml
(not adjustable).
• Natural movement
3-position tip-ejector may be set for
left or right-handed users, and less
force is required to eject the tips.
Ultra Easy Maintenance
• Removable tip-ejector for easy access to the
user- serviceable parts.
Tip-ejector is made
of PVDF to avoid
corrosion.
• Two-part tip holder for easy maintenance
and cleaning.
• Electronic adjustment is simple, only one
tool is needed.

PIPETMAN
P
The Pipetting Standard
Pipetman P is a fully adjustable, air-displacement
pipette with the selected volume shown on a digital
indicator (volumeter). Designed and manufactured
to provide you with a range of robust, accurate and
precise pipettes. Eight models cover the full range
of volumes from 0.2 µL to 10 mL.
The Standard for Robustness
• Built to last, constructed of stainless-steel and PVDF
(a plastic with very high-resistance to chemical
attack).
The Standard for Accuracy
and Precision
• Unique “dry seal” technology avoids using grease
to obtain an adequate airtightness, and guarantees
long-term performances.
• Thick body (handle) in PVDF to minimize
the hand-warming effect during pipetting.
• Rigourous quality control - each piston is checked
using a microscope.
Easy Maintenance
• Routine cleaning is all that is required
to keep Pipetman in top condition.
No lubrication is required.
• Parts that may come in contact with liquids
are easy to clean or replace. The tip-holder
and tip-ejector are fully autoclavable.
OUR PIPETTES CONFORM TO

ISO8655
• P2 and P10 equipped
• P5000 and P10ml are safer
with dual position tipejector, allowing the use of
Diamond D10 (short) and
DL10 (long) tips : a plus
for protection and
precision when using
microtubes.
and more accurate than glass pipettes.
They are equipped
with a polyethylene
filter that prolongs piston
life expectancy and prevents
contamination.

Right Pipette ! Right Volume ! Right Price !
Pipetman F is a fixed-volume, air-displacement
pipette. Thirteen robust models cover a large
volume range from 2 µL to 1000 µL, with
Pipetman legendary accuracy and precision.
Right Pipette
• GLP compliance - no risk of volume selection errors.
Using a dedicated fixed-volume Gilson pipette for a
specific test assures reliable and consistent results.
Right Volume
• Can be readjusted by users in the laboratory, for dense
or viscous fluids (once reset the new volume cannot be
changed accidentally).
Right Price
• An economical choice for clinical diagnostics, quality
control, and any routine testing.

MICROMAN
Your Partner for the Pipetman Pipette
Positive Displacement Pipette
The desired volume is
aspirated rapidly and
completely
No air-to-liquid
interface
The positive wiping action of the
piston against the capillary wall
assures accurate dispensing of
even the most viscous sample
and avoids any carry over
Proven Accuracy and Precision
• Can pipette all kinds of liquid with a high degree of accuracy and precision.
• Large volume range from 1µL to 1000 µL.
• Capillary Pistons (CPs) are precision molded from chemical resistant,
non wetting polypropylene.
• No need for calibration when you change the capillary - piston.
Complete and rapid
pipetting of viscous,
dense, volatile or above
temperature samples
Positive displacement pipette no viscous liquid remains in the
capillary-piston.
The best choice
for PCR and Biological
samples
Air displacement pipette viscous liquids adhere to the
inside wall of the tip.
Safest Pipette
Contamination Free Pipetting
• Prevents aerosol formation.
• Protects against residual sample carry-over.
• Unbreakable plastic capillary and piston.
• Built-in tip ejector, no need to touch

DISTRIMAN andSimplify
DistriTips
Repetitive Pipetting
Distriman is a positive-displacement,
continuously adjustable repeater-pipette to
simplify multiple dispensing when used with
Gilson pure-polypropylene DistriTip syringes.
Direct Volume Readout
• With the Distriman you can dispense the exact
volume, eliminating tedious calculations.
Only 3 Syringes Are Needed
• Micro 125 µL, Mini 1250 µL and Maxi 12.5 mL
cover the entire volume range (from 1 µL to
1.25 mL). DistriTips are the only syringes capable
of dispensing at least 100 aliquots.
Wide Selection of Packaging
Options
• Each model of DistriTip is available in standard
or sterilized (ST) version, in boxes of 50 syringes.
Sterilized DistriTips are individually wrapped
and certified free of RNase, DNase, DNA, RNA
and protease.

Quality Accessories for Quality Pipettes
Gilson accessories are of the same high quality as
Gilson pipettes. Gilson considers accessories as a part
of the pipetting system. All pipettes should be stored
vertically to avoid the possibility of liquid running back
into, and contaminating or corroding, the interior of
the pipette.
Carrousel™ Pipette Stand
• A convenient, rotating stand–holds up to seven Gilson pipettes
(any model) with exceptional stability. Protects your precious
pipettes from possible damage or contamination.
Trio™ Pipette Stand
• Trio is a portable pipette stand that keeps your Gilson pipettes
within easy reach. A great accessory for use in fume hood.
Single™ Pipette Holder*
• An adhesive-backed holder, designed for use where space is limited
(fume hoods, sterile hoods, etc.). Sticks to any smooth, dry surface
without damage. Resistant to chemicals and UV light.
Coloris™ Identification Clips
• GLP friendly, new brightly colored clips are used to identify or
personalize your Pipetman pipette. Made of polyacetal, Coloris
clips accept permanent ink - they just snap into place.
Pipetman® Ultra Name Tags
• Personalize
your Pipetman Ultra by writing your name or
application on one of the color coded stickers (protected by the
plastic window).
* Suitable for all Gilson pipettes except for the Pipetman Ultra range. New single holder will soon be available
for all Gilson pipettes.

QualiTrace™: Quality Management Software for Pipettes
QualiTrace is a complete calibration and quality management package for GLP
laboratories. The software is compatible with all Gilson pipettes.
• Software is easy to configure for gravimetric calibration and is
compatible with any balance. Use the standard method or enter
your own parameters (number of weighings, volumes, temperature,
pressure, etc.).
• QualiTrace automatically manages the calibration protocol with direct
transfer of the measurements from the balance to the software, which:
establishes the calibration schedule, guides the user through the weighing
process, calculates accuracy and precision, accepts or rejects the pipette,
and prints a calibration report.
• The audit trail features record entries by the user and any changes in key setup options.
Complete device history is conserved intact.
