Practicing good bench posture while pipetting can significantly reduce your risk of pain or injury that accumulates after spending extended periods of time in the lab. 

Pipetting involves long hours and a lot of repetition that, over time, can cause chronic muscular-skeletal disorders. With a good pipetting technique and body mechanics, you can increase accuracy and significantly reduce your risk of pain or injury.
