In a recent blog post, TTE highlights the quality, convenience, and standard compliance offered by metrology-based pipette calibration service providers. Here at TTE, our lab technicians take conscious steps to utilize the best procedural practices, making sure we are compliant with every aspect of FDA regulations and ISO 17025 and ISO 8655 standards. In order to obtain the most accurate results, we practice a number of tried and true pipetting techniques, lowering our risk of error.
The following is a list of 8 helpful tips for your lab to consider, based on our own successes. These techniques are intended to further improve your pipetting practices and ensure the most accurate test results. Consider these best practices the next time you pipette:
1. Use consistent force when installing the pipette tip: When installing your pipette tip, it’s important that you apply the same, consistent force to ensure a proper fit each time. Do not jam the tip in place; this can damage your pipette tip and negatively affect your results.
