Application Note: The Impact of Sample Temperature and Pipetting Modes on Volumetric Pipetting Accuracy of Positive and Air Displacement Gilson Pipettes
9 August 2012

This application note details an experiment which was established to test the accuracy of pipetting hot and cold beverage samples using different pipettes and techniques. The different pipetting techniques included standard pipetting, pre-wetting pipetting and reverse pipetting. Both positive displacement pipettes (single and repeater) and air displacement pipettes (motorized and standard) were tested.
