In chemistry, biology, and medicine, a pipette is a piece of typical equipment for transferring a precise amount of liquid. It is one of the most important advancements in pipetting. Different designs, capacities, and technical capabilities are available in electronic pipettes. To get accurate findings, pipetting should be done with extreme precision.
Why use electronic pipettes?
You should use manual pipettes if you either pipette a few times or use little quantities of samples. In situations where pipetting must be done repeatedly over an extended length of time or when employing enormous amounts of liquid, electronic pipettes excel.
Electronic pipettes are more precise than manual ones. You may use your fingers dozens of times each day while using a mechanical pipette. Achieving precision requires applying the same amount of force at the same precise angle.
Electronic pipettes do away with the ability to control the pipette by hand. There is no opportunity for human mistake since the volume is controlled electronically, and the plunger travels up and down electrically with the press of a button.
How is the usage of an electronic pipette different than a manual one?
Here is how a manual pipette can be used:
Firstly, adjust the pipette's volume and plunge the plunger back in. Once you've reached the right depth, gently release the plunger to return it to its resting state. The liquid should pour into the tip in approximately a second. After this, place the pipette against the receiving chamber's wall and gently depress the plunger to the very first stop. Now, depress the plunger until the second stop after one second pause. Remove the pipette by sliding the tip along the vessel wall and wait until the plunger is back in its resting position.
Here is how an electronic pipette can be used:
A few of these procedures can be done for you when using an electronic pipette. All you have to do is use the digital display to adjust the volume and speed. Then, press the button down and move it allowing easy pouring of equal quantities of liquid.
Working Principle Of Pipettes
the piston achieves liquid suction and discharge through the telescopic movement of the spring
Advantages of choosing an electronic pipette over a manual one:
- Repetitive Strain Injury is less likely with electronic pipettes because of their superior form and design, as well as the fact that they need fewer hand motions.
- Using an electronic pipette will save you time and effort. Manual pipettes need frequent pauses due to hand pain when pipetting large amounts. Pauses aren't necessary in electronic.
- Electronic pipettes may be charged and used without interruption.
- Pipetting may be made much safer by eliminating the possibility of human mistakes. Consistency in data and outcomes improves.
- Electronic pipettes improve accuracy and precision. Since they include a programmed monitor and motor, they can accurately and precisely dispense quantities.
- Electronic pipettes are simpler to use since they need fewer hand motions. Automated and programmed pipetting processes are available.
