  • The positive effect of ergonomics on pipetting accuracy

    Pipetting can be an extremely repetitive task with many researchers commonly pipetting for several hours each day. It is also a high-force activity where conventional pipette plunger forces, tip loading forces and tip ejection forces can easily approach or exceed safe levels. Apart from hand pain and the risk of injury, these forces can cause fatigue and tired hands increasing pipetting ...
