Pipettes are small, thin tubes used to transfer small amounts of liquid from one container to another. They are commonly used in laboratories to measure and dispense small volumes of fluids.
Although they appear simple, pipettes require regular and careful cleaning to keep them functioning properly and to prevent contamination of the results of the experiences. As with any other equipment, cleaning should be performed according to the manufacturer's specifications.
Pipettes are manufactured in a wide variety of sizes and materials, and can be used manually or automatically. Manuals are the most common and are used to transfer small and medium amounts of liquid, while automatics are more accurate and are used for larger amounts.
