This improved model is a convenient hand operated precision
applicator for a fixed range of droplets. Aliquots 0.25µl
to 5µl and 2.5µl to 50µl in 5 steps using the
1cc and 10cc syringes respectively. Applications include agricultural
research, chemistry, physiology, etc. Supplied complete with
1cc syringe and two packets of hypodermic needles.
The Burkard hand micro-applicator can be used anywhere. It is
convenient, reliable, sturdy and portable and needs no battery
or mains electricity. Our improved version is a further example
of Burkard Scientifics engineering and maintains our reputation
for quality and precision.
There are many laboratory uses for micro-dispensing devices,
however few manually operated instruments prove convenient, for
one reason or another. The instrument has been developed to combine
simplicity with speed and ease of operation.
The hand applicator has had an international appeal for more
than 20 years typically in areas of topical application, micro-injection,
micro-titration and precision dispensing. Widely employed in
agricultural research laboratories, this attractive, free standing
instrument is invaluable for the application of pesticides. It
provides easy selection and delivery of reproducible aliquots.
The rigidly mounted, precision all glass syringe enables the
operator to carefully apply microdroplets for a variety of individual
With the applicators universal support the syringe needle
may be angled downward for injection into cells, etc. More complex
dispensing may require an alternative laboratory stand or a micrometer
positioned platform for use under a microscope.
The applicator has indexing enclosed for protection, easier
volume selection, and a base plate manufactured from inert stain-resistant
The applicators are constructed from stainless steel or anodised
materials which withstand chemicals in the laboratory. The design
protects precision parts to maintain long term accuracy, and
improves the droplet selection. The standard aliquots are 0.25,
0.5, 1, 2, 5µl when the all-glass 1ml syringe is used.
However droplet sizes up to 50µl are possible with the
optional 10cc syringe and adapter; all scale volumes are multiplied
Syringe mounting is quick and simple, and the volume selection
is reliable with positive location of the index and drum when
the selector datum coincides with any graduation on the scale.
Free rotation of the drum is possible when the lever is depressed
for rewind. The universal mount with single clamp positively
secures the instrument in any desired position. Special mounting
adapters will be provided to order if required.
Standard equipment includes
- 1ml syringe
- 1 box each 5/10 + 3/10 luer syringe needles
- 10cc all glass syringe and adaptor (for volumes up to 50µl)
- Alternative syringe needle sizes
