Bulb Pipettes – Class AS, USP, Certified

Class AS, USP, certified single-volume bulb pipette. High contrast blue enamel print represents the optimum combination of resistance and readability. Available in all ISO sizes from 0.5mL to 100mL. Made of AR-GLAS®.

The optimized flow of geometry in the tip ensures reliable liquid dispensing from the pipette. The mechanical resilience of the tip and its fire-polished edges ensures a long service life.

All BLAUBRAND® USP bulb pipettes are supplied with a batch number and an accompanying USP batch certificate in the original packaging.

Volumetric instruments according to USP error limits

Companies producing pharmaceutical products for the US market are supervised by US authorities, e.g. the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), and have to meet the requirements of the USP (United States Pharmacopeia). The current USP prescribes in section 31 the use of volumetric instruments with accuracy in accordance to class A of the ASTM standards and list those for volumetric flasks, transfer pipettes and burettes in tables. For graduated pipettes up to and including 10 mL size the error limits are mentioned in the text. BRAND volumetric instruments are manufactured according to the current DIN EN ISO standards. As the construction specifications are differently defined in the DIN EN ISO and ASTM standards, the error limits differ as well. With included USP certificates BRAND confirms for the delivered USP volumetric instruments that the class A error limits according to the USP or, rather, ASTM standards are met.

Every glass volumetric measuring instrument is individually calibrated. Computer-controlled systems ensure maximum precision in a fully automated production line. The final step of this Statistical Process Control is random sampling of finished product according to DIN ISO 3951. The quality management system applied at BRAND, which is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001, is a combination of process monitoring and random checks with an accepted quality level (AQL) of approximately 0.4.

The batch certificate confirms that ASTM class A error limits required by USP are met. The certificate records the mean value, the standard deviation of the batch and the date of issue (batch number: year of manufacture/batch).

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Boro 3.3 glass?
The abbreviation Boro 3.3 stands for a borosilicate glass type 3.3 as specified in international standard DIN ISO 3585, for applications requiring very good chemical and thermal resistance (including resistance to thermal shock), and high mechanical stability. Typical applications are components for chemical apparatus, round-bottom flasks, and beakers.

2. What is AR-GLAS®?
AR-GLAS® is a type of soda-lime glass with good chemical and physical properties. Soda-lime glass is the most common type (90%) of manufactured glass. It is suitable for products which are usually subjected to short-term chemical exposure, and to limited thermal stress (e.g. pipettes, culture tubes).

3. What pipette controllers can be used with the bulb and graduated pipettes?
Any of the pipette controllers offered by BrandTech® can be used. Depending on your application, choose the macro™ for manual control or the accu-jet® pro for motorized control.

4. How should I clean my volumetric glassware?
For increased service life it is recommended that you clean your volumetric instruments with:
