Pipetting Calibration and Technique: Their Effects on Experimental Outcome
26 July 2012
This white paper discusses the importance of accurate pipetting, with examples from genomic and proteomic papers. The pipette and pipetting technique can play a major role in a success or failure of an experiment. Operator technique is important, but also maintaining a calibrated pipette is essential for accurate results. Regular physical checking of pipette by the gravimetric method is good practice.
