Good Pipetting Practice - 5 Steps to Better Results
A Specially-developed five step
programme for reducing the risks involved in the workflow process for liquid
handling and for maximizing the potential to produce accurate, reproducible
Good Pipetting Practice (GPP) has been developed as part of Mettler Toledo's GxP series which includes Good Weighing Practice (GWP) and utilises both Anachem's and Rainin's 40 years of expertise in liquid handling and pipette service.
As pipettes are an essential tool in most laboratories, their accuracy and precision are vital for producing good quality results. This comprehensive and systematic approach to working will enable you to maximise your pipetting accuracy and improve the reproducibility of your data.
The GPP programme consists of a comprehensive package of risk analyses, educational materials, and seminar offerings. It is divided into five major components; Evaluation, Selection, Training, Calibration and Routine Operation. The first two sections help you to understand your application workflows and aid you with the selection of the right tools for your requirements. The third component teaches you how to optimise your workflow through good technique and knowing which techniques to use for various liquids. The fourth and fifth principles cover how to understand your risks in order to alleviate them and the importance of keeping your pipettes well maintained.
By applying the principles of GPPTM everyone on your team will:
- Understand the array of liquid handling instruments and options available
- Know how to optimise their workflow for each of the liquid handling steps involved
- Gain the range of pipetting skills necessary to produce reliable data
- Appreciate how ergonomics can influence data production and their own well being
- Recognise the risk associated with out-of-calibration pipettes and the role of routine checks compared with professional service
