Discover the 5 Distinct Steps of Pipetting With This Tutorial Video
The Pipetting Cycle is part of a series of tutorial videos; this first tutorial demonstrates the five distinct steps of pipetting and how to do them correctly. These have been created as part of Anachem's Good Pipetting Practice Programme (GPP).
The majority of scientists will agree that pipetting is normally the most frequently practiced activity in the lab. The accuracy and precision of pipettes is vital for producing good quality results. However it is not just the pipette that needs to be considered when evaluating the accuracy of experimental data. There are a number of factors that can influence the accuracy, quality and reproducibility of the generated data, including pipetting skill, pipette maintenance and calibration.
A complete pipetting system is comprised of the pipette, the pipette tip and the pipette user. All of these three elements affect experimental outcomes and therefore must be considered as a whole when attempting to produce good, reliable results.
Anachem has over 40 years of expertise in this area, which is why, alongside Mettler Toledo; we have created a Good Pipetting Practice Programme (GPP) which consists of risk analyses, educational material and seminars. This specially developed five step programme has been designed to help you understand and reduce the risks involved in your workflow process for liquid handling and for you to improve the consistency of your results.
As part of this programme we have developed a set of 6 video tutorials covering the Pipetting Cycle, Volume Setting, Pre-Rinsing, Aspiration, Immersion Depth & Angle and Dispensing.
The first tutorial – The Pipetting Cycle, demonstrates the five distinct steps of pipetting and how to do them correctly. Click here to watch this video now.
