Guide To Ergonomic Pipette Use & Handling

ibspr114-image.jpgINTEGRA has announced the availability of an informative guide that discusses ergonomic pipette design and provides useful tips regarding proper use and handling of these popular laboratory tools.

Working with pipettes in laboratories demands a lot of concentration and precision. Pipettes are often used to carry out reactions involving valuable reagents. Further, health risks are often present if working with chemicals - thus information relating to the proper use of pipettes is critical for professional and safe working. Using pipettes for extended periods of time has been associated with an increased risk of hand and shoulder ailments. There are a number of ergonomic factors that should be considered while working with pipettes, such as the weight and length of the pipette, the force required to operate the pipette and how the pipette fits into the hand. Today pipettes are available in a large range of makes and models from a growing number of suppliers. Each of these pipettes has varying features in terms of ease of use, technical specification and price. The various features of your chosen pipette will influence comfort, ease of use and productivity.
