  Pipette Tips and Pipettes – an Infallible System?

In research involving pipetting, it has, on occasion, often been the case that experimental results were not easily reproducible, even though all variables within the experimental procedure have undergone a thorough review. 

Eppendorf pipettesSo in these instances, can it be said that all sources of error have truly been accounted for? In many cases the assumption is made that the pipetting system, consisting of pipette and pipette tip, is not a source of error as long as the tip fits the pipette. However, even if this is the case, it does not guarantee that the pipetting result will be accurate. Therefore, with good reason, the international standard...

  The Eppendorf Research plus pipette – lightweight, reliable and ergonomic In today's research environment, attention on pipettes no longer focuses exclusively on precision and accuracy; instead, user-friendly operating features, which reduce strain during pipetting, have moved into the foreground. Therefore, ergonomics plays an important role for the user. Primarily mentioned aspects are the weight of the pipette and the forces required during use. Included in the handling force are, among others, the force required for attachment and securing as well as ejection of the pipette tip. The new mechanical pipettes of the pipette family Eppendorf Research plus have demonstrated optimal performance in all those areas.

 

  User Report on epMotion from the research laboratory of the Institute of Pathology at the Technical University of Munich After our work group in the department of pathology in the University Hospital rechts der Isar had established a method for the extraction of proteins from fixed materials embedded in paraffin, we wanted to analyze these samples on a antibody specificity, and to avoid entering the saturation range during quantification, serial dilutions need to be spotted onto the slide. These must be prepared in 96-well and/or even 384-well plates.

 

  Transformation of Bacteria and Spreading onto 24-well Agar Deepwell Plates with Eppendorf epMotion 5075 Transformation of bacteria with DNA and spreading onto agar deepwell plates has been automated using the Eppendorf epMotionÂź 5075. After overnight incubation, positive colonies could be observed. The described method is very effective and can be fully automated. It provides significant advantages for all steps of the process of distributing DNA in small aliquots onto agar plates. The method is inexpensive and simple, as we can routinely generate 24-well agar deepwell plates to obtain desired colonies.

 

  Performing Cell Growth Curve Experiments with different Substances on the Eppendorf epMotion 5075 LH In the present Application Note we make use of the liquid handling system epMotionÂź 5075 LH to analyze simultaneously the influence of seven different concentrations of three substances dissolved in three different solvents on the growth of the fibroblast cell line NIH/3T3. Three independent experiments were performed and each experiment is divided into 5 steps: Cell seeding, Cell treatment, Culture media change, Fixation and Sulforhodamin B staining and measurement.
