The difficulties associated with using handheld multichannel pipettes
are familiar to every lab scientist; tips need 'hammering' on to ensure they are picked up, but this still doesn't always ensure correct tip alignment or a good seal, potentially affecting assay results.
volumes can be automatically set, and various wizards enable quick and efficient programming of complex processes.
Fast replication or reformatting of 96 and 384 well plates and high precision transferring of reagents, compounds and solutions to or from microplates is now as easy as pipetting with a standard electronic pipette
into a single tube.
Design challenges for the pipette
system included the need for a mechanism that would withstand substantial axial loads during the pressing-on of the pipette
For a multichannel pipette
(or robot for that matter), it is best practice to check each channel as carefully as we would for a single-channel instrument; but this best practice is not necessarily standard practice.
5 million mechanical pipettes
and 100,000 electronic pipettes
sold each year, and more than 10 billion pipette
tips sold worldwide.
Few studies have investigated the force applied to a manual pipette
and the role of thumb muscles during pipetting, and no study, to our knowledge, has investigated how latch pipettes
affect thumb muscle activity.
One key element that impacts the accuracy and precision of countless laboratory procedures is pipette
Accuracy is extremely important in the laboratory and the Fast Release Pipette
Forty-nine of these are 28-ton models, but Point also runs a few larger presses - up to 77-tons - for some of its bigger parts, such as a rack for pipette
The Microlab 300 achieves this range with just one probe and two tip sizes, instead of the three pipette
sizes and three tip sizes typically required.
The Rainin SmartStand intelligent pipette
system from Mettler Toledo can be easily adapted to any laboratory's standard operating procedures, helping to drive compliance in regulated environments, such as pharma, GLP and QC laboratories.

While quality assurance efforts in liquid handling typically place much emphasis on pipette
calibration, repair, and maintenance, ensuring pipette
operator competence is a crucial, albeit often neglected, area.
With a light touch, each tip is clipped securely on the F1-ClipTip pipette
using a three-interlocking clip design.
