What is a serological pipets?

Procedure. The serological pipette is a nearly ubiquitous laboratory instrument used for transferring milliliter volumes of liquid. Serological pipettes typically have gradations along their sides for measuring the amount of liquid being aspirated or dispensed.

How accurate are serological pipets?

Pipette Precision & Accuracy Historically serological pipettes have not been considered reliable when measuring for accuracy. This issue has been removed in the present day serological pipette, which are “guaranteed accuracy and precision to +1 – 2%”.

Are serological pipettes glass?

Available in non-sterile and sterile. Pipette lengths are available in standard and shorties to provide versatility. Manufactured from 51- expansion borosilicate glass and plastic.

Are serological pipettes calibrated?

Serological or ‘blow-out’ pipettes are calibrated so that the last drop of liquid needs to be blown-out of the tip to deliver the full volume of the pipette. (If you are not trying to deliver the full volume of the pipette, you may not have to blow these out.)

What are the 2 different types of pipettes?

What is the difference between Mohr and serological pipettes?

What is the difference between a volumetric pipette and a serological pipet?

Volumetric transfer pipettes are calibrated to deliver a fixed liquid volume with free drainage, and are available in sizes ranging from 0.5–200 mL. Serological pipettes are calibrated all the way to the tip, and the last drop should be blown out.

Are serological pipettes blown out?

Is a serological pipette TD or TC?

Serological pipettes are of two types: TC (“to contain”) or TD (“to deliver”). Shown is the explanatory label of a TD 5 ml pipette. Microorganisms are everywhere – in the air, soil, and human body as well as on inanimate surfaces like laboratory benches and computer keyboards.
