Micropipette Mastery


Sorry! The enrollment period is currently closed. Please check back soon.

Full course description

This course will open for enrollment on June 1, 2024.

The class is expected to begin July 1, 2024.

Micropipettes are used daily in almost all professional laboratory environments for liquid handling and require practice to repeatedly perform accurate and precise sample dilutions and additions of standard mixtures. This course will teach you how to use a micropipette correctly, consistently, and accurately for liquid handling. Types of micropipettes used will include single-channel and multi-channel, as well as both variable-volume and fixed-volume pipettes. A digital badge will be awarded upon completion.

To successfully complete the course, you will:

• Attend and complete an in-lab training course with the Lab Manager of the Water Science Laboratory to learn correct pipetting technique.

• Show competency by passing a micropipette proficiency test, which compares the earner's accuracy and precision with various micropipettes to the allowable error by the relevant micropipette manufacturer. This must be completed in-person at the Water Sciences Laboratory.
