Basic of Pipetting: Principles, Proper Handling and Maintenance
In the field of molecular biology, laboratory technicians, researchers and scientists perform minute microlitre
pipetting every day.
Achieving accurate, precise and reproducible pipetting is thereby critical in today’s laboratory experiments and analytical processes because a tiny pipetting error may produce false results or even ruin a whole experiment, leading to wastage of reagents and time.
In this pipette clinic, we would like to share with you tips to enable optimum pipetting:
> Handling of problematic liquids
> Correct pipetting techniques to achieve reproducible results
> Importance of ergonomics
> General maintenance of pipettes and decontamination procedures
