Good pipetting technique: Pre-rinsing pipette tips video


Pre-rinsing is a fast, easy way to increase accuracy by up to 0.2%. Why? It helps neutralise the capillary effect in micro-volume pipettes, and for larger volume tips, equalises the temperature of the air inside the tip with the temperature of the sample.

Good Pipetting Technique: Pipette tip immersion video


Immersing the tip to the correct depth will improve your accuracy by up to 5%. Immersing the tip too deeply can cause too much liquid to be aspirated and create bubbles. Conversely, positioning the tip too close to the surface can aspirate air.
