Using a micropipette in your laboratory
Not only do micropipettes differ in size and volume dispensed, but depending on those particular aspects they also require specific pipette tips. Micropipettes use a disposable pipette tip to aspirate liquid, note that the tip is the only part of the pipette that makes contact with the solution. A new tip is utilized for every sample in order to prevent cross-contamination.
The most essential aspect of a pipette tip is its quality, whether youâre looking for a filter, low retention, or gel loading tip, make sure that the pipette tip will perform accordingly and as precise as your micropipette. Make sure to research the purity of your pipette tips.
