Pipetting is a basic function in the laboratory that requires careful handling of precise volumes of liquid. Error-free pipetting is very important for obtaining quality results. Air displacement and positive displacement pipettes are two types available. Air displacement units are generally used with aqueous solutions such as buffers, diluted acids or alkalis. This device is [...]
Badly fitting pipette tips allow air to escape when drawing up and dispensing, thus leading to inaccurate results. Different types of tips are now available in the market - extended length pipette tips that can reach to the bottom of sample vessels without contact by the pipette, solvent safe carbon filtered tips that offer pipette [...]
Pipetting, a standard laboratory procedure to transfer fluids, is routinely performed in life science experiments as well as in research and development labs in the chemicals, foods, materials, and paints industries. There are different types of pipettes such as fixed volume and variable volume pipettors, and single channel and multichannel pipettes. While single-channel pipettes use [...]
