Pipette

The pipette is the long thin tube that connects to the dropper cap. When the dropper cap’s bulb is squeezed, it creates a vacuum that pushes liquid into the pipette.

  • Plastic

Pipettes can be customized with measurements for accurate dosing using graduate marking or laser etching.

Controlled Dispensing

The ability to dispense liquids in small, controlled quantities is the main attraction when it comes to dropper bottles.
