Use of Micropipettes in Blood Tests

Micropipettes are small portable devices that can be used to measure and transfer small amounts of fluid. They are often used in laboratories to transfer small volumes of fluids, such as DNA, RNA, and blood samples.ย  As micropipettes are increasingly used in blood tests, it is important to understand how they work and how they can be used effectively.

Micropipettes are an essential tool in blood testing and play a vital role in ensuring accurate results. By understanding how they work and using them correctly, you can ensure that your blood samples are accurately measured and transferred.

At Kalstein, we have micropipettes designed to take samples in microliters, highly resistant and ideal for special laboratory analysis.

Functions of Micropipettes

Micropipettes work by suctioning a small amount of liquid into the device and then dispensing it in another container. The volume of fluid that can be aspirated and dispensed is usually between 0.5 and 10 microliters.

There are two types of micropipettes: manual and electronic. Hand pipettes are operated by a plunger that is pressed to aspirate the liquid and then released to dispense it. Electronic micropipettes are operated with a button or lever switch and can be programmed to aspirate and dispense specific volumes of liquid.

When in use, it is important to hold it properly and use the correct tip size. The tip should be inserted into the liquid container so that it is just above the surface of the liquid. The plunger or button should be pressed slowly and evenly to aspirate the desired volume of liquid. To dispense the liquid, release the plunger or button.

When aspirating and dispensing blood samples, it is important to avoid forming air bubbles in the blood. To do this, the tip of the micropipette should be inserted just below the surface of the blood and the plunger or button should be pressed slowly and evenly. Air bubbles will rise to the top of the blood and can then be removed before the blood is dispensed.

What should be considered when using a micropipette?

When using a micropipette, it is important to note that the sample size to be transferred. They’re very precise, but they’re not perfect. If a very small amount of fluid is aspirated, the entire sample may not be transferred. If a very large amount of fluid is aspirated, some fluid may leak out.

It is also important to be careful when handling the syringe from the micropipette. If the syringe is too tight, some liquid may leak out. If released too quickly, the entire sample may not be transferred.

Here are some things to keep in mind when using a micropipette:

Make sure it is clean before use. If it is not clean, you can transfer impurities to the sample you are measuring.

Remove the tip cap from the micropipette before use. If it does not, it will not work properly.

Do not touch the tip with your hands. If you do, you can transfer bacteria or other contaminants to the sample you are measuring.

Do not move the micropipette during measurement. If you do, you can change the amount of fluid being transferred.

Do not use a micropipette if you are not sure how it works. If in doubt, consult a laboratory technician or read the user manual.
