Good Pipetting – A Handy Guide

Pipetting is a central part of almost every life sciences research workflow, so laboratories need accurate and reliable pipettes to ensure high quality, reproducible results. Correct use and regular maintenance of pipettes is therefore essential to maintain precision and avoid the risk of cross-contamination.

The ‘Pipetting Handbook’ is a handy reference guide for laboratory staff, providing detailed explanations of how to maximize the accuracy and reproducibility of liquid transfers in virtually any environment – enhancing performance and improving results.

It provides a complete overview of the various factors that affect pipetting performance, from how to choose the most appropriate pipette and tips for your application to correct pipetting techniques. Crucially, it also offers in-depth explanations of how to identify common causes of pipetting errors, and mitigate their effect on future experiments.
