Can a Rainin Multichannel Reduce RSI?

Rainin multichannel pipettes and Capp multichannels have found a way to combat the unspoken danger of pipetting, repetitive strain injury (RSI). Researchers and Manufactures are constantly looking to reduce or remove the risk of RSI. Some of the simplest solutions include modifying the mold of a pipette and reducing the weight, but there are two solutions that are rarely considered. The force it takes to mount a tip and the intensity of the plunger force highly contributes to the risk of RSI. This risk can be doubled when using a multichannel pipette, as it takes more force to manipulate all of the channels. We will examine two methods to combat these problems found in Rainin multichannel and Capp multichannels.

3 Microcentrifuges Your Lab Should Know About

Microcentrifuges, much like regular centrifuges, work by using the process of centripetal acceleration to separate substances of different densities. However, as their name suggests, microcentrifuges are more ideal for the separation of micro-volume protocols. Typically, they are used with liquid samples that are 2 ml or less at high speeds. They are important for biological applications in laboratories including the microfiltration of small samples and the pelleting of nucleic acids and proteins.

Centrifuges 101: 5 Different Benchtop Centrifuges

Centrifuges are one of the most popular pieces of equipment in both labs and homes across the world. Originally created by an engineer named Benjamin Robins, it wasn’t until 1869 that a centrifuge was used for laboratory purposes. Working under the sedimentation principle, the centrifuge has become one of the most useful tool to chemist, biologist, and biochemist alike. To help ensure an increase in productivity during centrifugation, many different models have been created. Below is a list of the different types of benchtop centrifuges along with their individual benefits.

Extended Length Tips will Reduce Sample Loss

It’s one of the most frustrating problems in the lab. You’ve been pipetting out of a conical tube and just as your about to finish, you realize you can’t reach the last bit of solution. Depending on the type of solution, your options are now limited. Transferring the solution to another container would increase the risk of contamination, but without the rest of the solution your experiment is ruined. To solve this problem its best to look at the tools directly involved, the conical tube and your pipette tips.
