Micropipetting

Micropipetting

Overview

Micropipettes are devices that are used to deliver small volumes of liquid; usually in the range of 0.5 to 1,000 microliters. Like other forms of laboratory instrumentation, the micropipette must be operated with precision so that your measurements can be reproduced consistently.

In this video, we'll demonstrate the correct technique for using a micropipette. We'll also examine some common micropipetting mistakes.
