Abstract

The underlying technical and operational knowledge of micro-pipetting is essential for scientists, technicians, and students to achieve precise results from their experiments in Biomedical Sciences and other related disciplines. Since it is one of the crucial prerequisites for Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs), the key fundamentals of the micro-pipetting methods, such as forward and reverse pipetting and the importance of ergonomics and maintenance etc., are revisited in this Editorial report.
