Pipette Webinars and Performance Training for You

Training Services

As the leading provider of ISO 17025 and ISO 8655 accredited pipette services, Transcat offers clients much more than a standards-based instrument calibration. Each variable must be addressed to maximize overall pipette performance. Therefore, training is essential.

Recognizing that a major source of pipette errors is user generated, we have developed comprehensive pipette training specifically designed to improve pipette user performance, saving thousands in costs per year.



We want to share our expertise to help your team improve measurement accuracy and repeatability. Our clients can select pipette training that is right for their staff. We offer three on-site pipette training options, plus a free online pipette training presentation that covers best practices and proper technique.


Pipetting Online Webinar

Our free webinar provides a convenient, non-invasive option for receiving a “best practices” approach to using pipettes in real-world situations. Your team members will learn pipetting techniques and procedures that will minimize errors, improve productivity, minimize rework and unnecessary waste, while reducing costs.

The real value for our clients? Our training provides the critical information and proper techniques your staff needs to know and includes a comprehensive list of ‘best practices’ to help them achieve maximum pipette performance and improved consistency, while extending the life of their pipettes.

We will present:

  • The general functionality and features of air-displacement, positive displacement, multichannel pipettes and repeat dispensers, including your specific pipette models.
  • Correct pipetting angles to ensure measurement accuracy.
  • Correct pipetting posture, which plays a critical role in maximizing pipette performance and minimizing user fatigue.
  • Correct aspiration depth, which determines liquid adhesion to the outside of the tip.
  • Proper Pre-wetting technique, to help achieve pipetting accuracy and precision.
  • Touching off, a technique to ensure accurate delivery of measurements.
  • Correct use of Blow out, another technique for accurate dispensing.
  • Changing Pipette Tips, which eliminates volumetric variations in liquid transfers.
  • Thermal Transfer, which ‘significantly’ causes drift in measurement accuracy.
  • Contamination Protection and the use of barriers, when necessary.
  • Pipette Storage and Cleaning, a critical element in preventing sample cross-contamination and damage.



Onsite Pipette Performance Training

For laboratories interested in formal, performance-based pipette training, Transcat provides a customized, more hands-on approach, with live, on-site training programs geared to your specific requirements and the most urgent needs of your staff. Included are one-on-one performance training and an interactive training and demonstration presentation. Users will also receive a detailed analysis of their before and after performance results (confidentially) compared to both the group of participants in the training session and a more universal standard.
