Stay Informed

Staying on top of the techniques used in your laboratory is crucial for the research you do. The basic techniques are often the ones that cause most of the problems because they are so widely used.

  • Does everyone in your lab know how to do reverse pipetting?
  • Does everyone know what is influencing homogeneous cell growth in your cell culture?
  • Is everyone preparing a mastermix the same way?

Our Stay Informed Infographics Series helps you stay on top of techniques and make sure procedures are consistent throughout your lab. See how we create our infographics in our latest animation.

Precise and Repeatable Pipetting of Problem Liquids

Handling Magnetic Beads during NGS Library Preparation

alt text
The preparation of high-quality NGS libraries is a cost-, labor-, and time-intensive process that requires a lot of focus. One of the most critical steps in this process is the handling of the magnetic beads. Pipetting robots like the epMotion® 5073 and 5075 NGS solutions allow automating this process. This step not only brings much-needed relief to the operator but also streamlines the process and increases productivity.

Aerosols in the Lab

alt text
Aerosols are colloidal systems of droplets and / or solid particles suspended in air. Aerosols can be found almost everywhere in the world and we inhale them continuously, so we should differentiate between harmful and harmless aerosols. The most important aerosols in the laboratory environment are bio-aerosols.

The Basic Components of a Bioreactor

Bioreactors are more than a just a vessel. Understanding the individual components and which role they play help to maximize the effi­ciency of your process. Learn more about the basic components of a bioreactor to get more out of your vessel.

Reproducibility and Speed in PCR

Even if PCR is one of the most common techniques in labs nowadays, to achieve stable and reproducible results can still be a challenge. Especially for advanced applications such as fast PCR, the instrument performance is crucial. Below are some facts you should consider when purchasing a PCR cycler.
