Quality-assured design by embryologists for embryologists

When you need a tool that will fit the task at hand, choose TPC

The Pipette Company was founded in 1999 by a group of Australian scientists working in reproductive medicine.

Strict principles of designing micropipettes for optimal clinical outcomes made the high quality pipettes a success from day one.

In 2000 the first micropipettes were shipped to embryologists and the popularity of the very carefully designed ICSI pipettes grew quickly.

  • Designed by embryologists and reproductive scientists
  • Precision manufactured to the strictest standards
  • Every pipette is checked and measured repeatedly during manufacture by experienced technicians

Design Principles

TPC offers a standard range of micromanipulation pipettes which have been designed to provide optimal clinical outcomes and minimise oocyte/embryo degeneration rates. Specific design features include:

  • Long, parallel tapers provide smooth, effortless fluid control during micromanipulation.
  • The bases of all pipettes are cut square and are lightly heat polished to prevent sharp edges from damaging silicon seals inside microtool holders.
  • Injection pipettes have a precision engineered ‘sharp-blunt’ spike which penetrates the zona pellucida easily, but does not tear the oolemma and cause oocyte degeneration. TPC spikes are very consistent and uniform in both shape and length.
  • Holding pipettes have a large, square, flat face and a proportionately large inner diameter, which provides better support for the oocyte and embryo and reduces distortion during micromanipulation.
  • Biopsy pipettes have a beveled or square face, and a lightly heat-polished tip without nicks or chips, which enables the user to safely remove cells with minimal damage to the embryo or the biopsied cells.
  • Zona drilling pipettes are square and lightly heat polished to reduce the possibility of damage to the embryo or polar body due to sharp edges.
  • Zona cutting (PZD) pipettes are stout and sharp, ensuring easy penetration of the zona pellucida.
