The Ergonomics of Pipetting: Forces are Affected by Pipette Selection
25 January 2013
Pipettes are ubiquitous, providing a simple mechanism to complete workflow requirements, from the starting liquid sample preparation to introducing the sample into a final analysis system. Using many different pipettes throughout the day is common and each unit may have its own unique challenges – high volume, low volume or multichannel. The ergonomic factors associated with a variety of pipettes and applications are considered in this white paper – poor ergonomics can lead to fatigue, pain and the risk of injuries.
