支 - appears to be the measure word for the implement (pipette)


Explanation:
I did a quick Google and found that 支 is the measure word for
DLAB 微量吸管 可調式 Adjustable Volume Pipette (among other implements) - so as far as I can tell - as 'pipette' is the tool that is generally used to measure in microliters I would translate 支 as pipette in this instance.

µl/each


Explanation:
Here "Zhi" is a unit, but we don't know exactly what it is, so I prefer "each" or "piece"
