Contracting with a service provider to properly and correctly service your laboratory pipettes is an important step in the security of your laboratory liquid handling system. Unfortunately, there are many different providers to choose from with widely varying procedures and competencies. Even among accredited providers, quality can vary from poor to excellent, so it pays to make this decision carefully. Be careful! Choosing the wrong provider can cause added expense and problems.
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.
Pipette - The Primary Laboratory Measurement Tool
Typical force and repetition rates in manual pipetting rates in manual pipetting add up to 5,000-10,000 lbs/day, enough to push over an elephant.
What Does the Symphony Have to Do with Pipetting?
Proper pipette repair service must include established, model-specific components, maintenance and repair processes in order to ensure valid compliance to tolerances, as well as maintaining measurement performance between service intervals. With our team of trained technicians and former biology scientists, we have over 50 years of pipette expertise and metrology experience contributing to the proper servicing of your pipettes. At TTE Laboratories, we routinely provide comprehensiv preventative maintenance on every pipette we receive and are capable of correctly repairing 99 percent of pipettes that are received broken, malfunctioning or are merely performing out of tolerance, without delay.
If you’re reading this article about brushing up on the basics of pipette calibration, it’s clear that you recognize the importance of keeping yourself sharp in the calibration lab. In this post, we have outlined what you need to know about the basics of proper calibration, from maintaining your equipment to proper preparation to the importance of metrology-driven calibration.
