A Pipetting Revolution

publication date: Nov 29, 2016
author/source: Mettler Toledo Rainin

Rainin LTS pipettes are helping scientists at the University of California, Santa Barbara to perform research in the fields of ecology and evolution.

Danielle BlackDanielle Black, a graduate student in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology, explained: “Our lab is focused on the study of fungal communities associated with plant leaves. As part of this research, we use PCR to amplify certain regions of fungi DNA for analysis, and this involves a lot of pipetting. Our Rainin LTS pipettes are ideal for this work. They are very comfortable to hold and smooth to operate, and so your hands don’t get as tired. This is a real benefit for repetitive pipetting tasks.”

“When you are doing sensitive molecular assays, sterility is important. We use both filtered and unfiltered tips, and find the Rainin TerraRacks an advantage. Previously, we used refillable tip boxes which had to be autoclaved each time. TerraRacks are ready to use – eliminating the need to autoclave and refill tip boxes – and this saves a lot of time. The lab is also tidier, as we no longer have empty boxes waiting to be autoclaved and refilled and, since TerraRacks use less plastic, it is better for the environment too. They are just so much more convenient.”
