Top Tips for Handheld Pipetting

Best pipetting practices are key to producing optimal results. Pipetting errors can occur when common technique mistakes are made that lead to volume discrepancies. Volume discrepancies in turn can tarnish data quality and lead to false test results, especially when pipetting in small volumes.

Maintaining a high quality pipetting technique and reducing technical errors are easy fixes that just require a little training, and are a great way to increase experimental efficacy, accuracy and precision.

Calling on a wealth of experience in the industry, INTEGRA, have produced an easy to follow guide to help reduce errors and optimize your handheld pipetting practices.

INTEGRA’s best practice guide provides expert advice in each area of pipetting and is backed up with an explanation of why this produces optimal results.

Available in English, French and German this new highly informative illustrated guide provides unbiased tips before starting pipetting, as well as how to pipette and optimize pipetting performance with different types of liquids. The guide is available in different sizes including a wall poster.
