John Morris Scientific are pleased to announce the winner is Denise Lupton, chief technician at The University of Western Australia submitted a working Gilson P200, manufactured prior to 1979.
Lupton was presented with the latest Gilson Pipetman M.
"We always knew Gilson pipettes were good, that's why we make a case for them and spend a bit more to get them," Lupton said.
"We like them because they are great for teaching; our students are very rough on them and they hold up well.
"They are also great because they are so easy and simple to maintain. However, we were still very surprised at the age of this pipette."
Andre Wyzenbeek, General Manager of John Morris Scientific, said in announcing the winner: "A working pipette after over 30 years is testament to Gilson's renowned precision, robustness and longevity."
