PIPETMAN® Comfort Handle: —an iF DESIGN Award Winner 2016


Villiers-le-bel, France (April 21, 2016)—Gilson announced today that the PIPETMAN Comfort Handle, a new pipette accessory for PIPETMAN® Classic, Neo, or G pipette that provides better ergonomics and adds character, received the iF Design Award 2016 in the Medicine/Health Care Product Category for its unique design. Evaluation criteria included degree of innovation, ergonomics, functionality, durability, and quality.

There were many competitors—the international high-profile jury assessed more than 5,000 entries from 53 countries to determine who would receive this coveted seal of excellence.

With an additional large finger hook and soft texture, this ergonomic handle allows for a better fit in the hand. The PIPETMAN Comfort Handle creates a natural feeling balance for the pipette to support your daily pipetting activity and aids in reducing the risk of repetitive strain injuries (RSI). A dedicated identification zone has also been integrated into the finger hook of the accessory to enable quick and easy identification of the pipettes in the lab when a customized label is attached.
