White Paper: Effects of Shipping on Pipettes

Regular service greatly improves the consistent performance of pipettes. But does shipping to and from service locations adversely affect the precision of their calibration? This white paper examines the potential risk. It presents findings from two sources: first, a randomized shipping experiment involving multiple packages of pipettes shipped to multiple locations, and second, a case study drawn from a major-account customer that ships thousands of pipettes to Rainin's Massachusetts facility for calibration.

White Paper: Pipette Tip Quality. Influence on Experimental Results

To produce reliable experimental results, pipette tip selection should be prioritized alongside technique and pipette calibration.

This paper provides background and criteria for evaluating and choosing tips that won't adversely influence an experiment's results. From materials and manufacturing to the fit and forces required to load and eject, pipette tip quality plays a key role in application outcomes.

Learn more about tip dynamics and the influence of pipette tips on your results.

Comparative Carbon Footprints. TerraRack vs. Injection-molded Tip Racks

The designs of most pipette tip racks have not changed for many years, and come from an era when autoclaving was necessary to eliminate any nucleases or microorganisms which may have been present on the tips.

METTLER TOLEDO Rainin is the pioneer of high purity ‘BioClean’ tips, creating a range of super-clean tips which are certified to be free of biological contaminants. Gamma or electron (e-beam) irradiation can be used to sterilize the tips, eliminating the need of autoclaving. Given the reduced need to autoclave and an increased concern about the lasting environmental impact of plastic, the time to develop greener tip rack packaging solutions is now. This white paper compares different rack options available with regard to rack weight, type of plastic and resulting carbon footprint. It shows that Rainin TerraRack is an easy recyclable and low environmental impact tip packaging.
