About Glass Pipettes
The easiest way to transfer a small quantity of liquid is to use a glass pipette. This useful tube is often found in laboratories, but it is also handy in the kitchen, where it prevents spillage or wastage of highly concentrated ingredients, such as food colouring or flavourings. It is useful to keep a dropper in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom so that you can use it to administer eye drops or other treatments. Many products, available on eBay, work by creating a partial vacuum by squeezing a bulb on one end, to draw up a liquid. A second squeeze dispenses the liquid. Graduated pipettes typically measure volumes between 1ml and 10mls, and this influences the size of the item. Fluid droppers come in several shapes and lengths, and many are accompanied by a glass bottle. If you need a glass pipette for a highly technical application, you can find electronic versions that offer accuracy and precision.
