How to ensure accuracy and reproducibility

When you go in search of honey you must expect to be stung by bees. Working with viscous liquids can be challenging. The same is true for volatile liquids like Ethanol or detergent-containing solutions (e.g., SDS, Triton X-100). Special pipetting techniques or using a positive displacement pipette can help you overcome these challenges. This will ensure pipetting these "problem liquids" accurately and reproducibly.

Problem liquids come in many forms. The Eppendorf Multipette® M4 and Combitips® advanced are perfect tools for successfully handling such challenges.

The Eppendorf Multipette M4®/Repeater® M4 was designed for pipetting problem liquids and for long dispensing series. It won the "Scientists' Choice Awards 2015" in the category "Best New General Lab Product". This award is presented by the online portal SelectScience® to products, which have significantly facilitated laboratory activities in 2014.
