Micropipettor: Transferring the Liquid

Holding the micropipettor vertically, place the tip in the receiving tube and gently dispense the sample by depressing the plunger to the first resistance point. After a brief pause, push the plunger to the second resistance point to fully discharge the liquid. It is important to avoid any contact between the micropipettor shaft and the receiving tube. Eject the tip in a waste container by depressing the tip ejector.
