Narishige's MF2 is a versatile tool to fabricate pipettes of your preference.
The MF2 Microforge offers a wide range of functions for making many different kinds of microtools by processing the microneedle tips. The MF2 fabricates various kinds of pipettes by micro-works of cutting, fire-polishing, bending or forming a spike. Being able to view the tip of the pipette in the microscope ensures efficiency in producing the pipette tip of your preference. The microscope is designed as a compact yet robust unit which reduces the risk of pipette breakage during handling. All of the fine controls are performed by reliable knobs installed on the microscope. The focusing knob can be switched to the left side of the microscope if needed. The readout of the heater level, which is essential for the work, is indicated on display. The heater can be turned on and off with a foot switch. The LED lamp as the light source allows brightness adjustment from low to high.

* Eyepiece/objective lens are sold separately. Please select one best suits your needs from designated sets.
