Innovative iPipet App Improves Medical Laboratory Pipetting Process

By |February 5th, 2015|Pipettes|Comments Off on Innovative iPipet App Improves Medical Laboratory Pipetting Process

Pipetting is an important but tedious laboratory procedure performed to transfer fluids. This process involves the transfer of precise amounts of liquid samples to different well plates within trays using a pipette. As this is a repetitive task, laboratorians can make mistakes and move a sample to the wrong location - with disastrous consequences. Researchers [...]
