      The Ergonomics of Pipetting White Paper

    Get the Knowledge to Protect Yourself

     Repetitive Strain InjuriesPipetting is a forceful and repetitive activity, and it is now widely accepted that there is a strong association between pipetting forces and the occurrence of developing Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI's). In fact, pipetting for just over an hour a day over the course of a year is enough to put you at risk, and these risks tend to increase with workload and age. But for most scientists pipetting is an unavoidable daily task, so reducing or even preventing your risk of RSI should be high on your list of priorities.
