Micropipette Accessory

Description (Brief)
This micropipette accessory was used to draw very small amounts of liquid into thin glass micropipettes. A micropipette would be inserted into the bottom of the object and liquid could be pulled in with very good control by turning the screw at the top.
It was used in the laboratories at Genentech, a biotechnology company.
