For those of us who calibrate on a daily basis, the repeated routine of pipetting may have become almost second nature.  In fact, a metrology-centric calibration program should provide the standardized expertise necessary for proper performance assessment and maintenance.  However, periodically brushing up on the fundamentals of practice and procedure can refresh your skills, correct errors, and remind you that even the smallest mistakes can lead to major ramifications in the lab space. Understanding your process and having mastery of your chemistry lab supplies, or biology techniques, will play a huge role in your success or failure. So let’s go back to the basics to ensure the highest quality of service and measurement at every turn with these 5 things you need to know about pipette tips:

The Undeniable Value of Conference Exhibits

Conference exhibits and industry vendor shows have historically been excellent events for bringing buyers together with sellers through… wait for it… face-to-face interactions. Although the standard business transaction of placing paper purchase orders from colossal paper catalogs has shifted over to electronic systems, the process where supply meets demand still requires the development and nurturing of business relationships. For example, I recently attended the 2014 American Society for Microbiology Conference exhibit in Boston, where I introduced myself to 25 key business representatives in a four-hour period.  I have subsequently established a dialog with 10 of those people, each with whom a valid business opportunity was established.

Pipettes are the primary tools that laboratory scientists use each day, perhaps as a hammer is to a roofer. They provide accurate measurements of very small volumes of liquids in the user’s quest to obtain correct test results. But pipettes are mechanical devices that require regular calibration service to maintain their accuracy and precision.  The similarities are not unlike the maintenance of your car. Without regular service and repair, your car can break down, leave you stranded and result in high repair costs. Pipettes are no different. Let’s explore this further, directing our focus to the measurement science and relevant standards.
