Poorly selected pipettor tips can cause major error to pipetting accuracy
9 May 2008
In liquid handling, the pipettor and the tip form a system.
The best pipetting results are naturally achieved by those manufacturers who, in order to ensure complete compatibility between pipettors and pipette tips, develop them at the same time.
As the tip is an integral component component of the pipetting system, its shape, material properties and fit have an influence on accuracy. Other concerns include the nominal volume of the tipand the tip geometry.
