Looking for better results while pipetting?

This poster illustrates basic pipetting techniques for everyone working in your lab.

Pipetting techniques include:

  • Proper dispensing to help improve accuracy by up to 1%
  • Rhythm and speed of pipetting to improve accuracy up to 5%
  • Immersion angles and depth
  • Pre-rinsing to help neutralize any capillary effects in pipette tips from micro or large volume pipette tips

Your pipette and the environment you work in also makes a huge difference!

Heat transfer from your hand to the pipette, "mechanical backlash" when setting the micrometer, and incorrect volume vs. range can all affect the success and reproducibility of your experimental results.
