Using pipettes in biological sciences (external link)

DescriptionThis includes a series of three short video sequences (each 2-2.5 minutes long), showing three different types of pipette, with an explanation of when it is appropriate to use each and a demonstration of their use. The demonstrations concentrate on the mechanics of using the pipettes. A useful add-on would be to show how the volume is set on a micropipette and to discuss how to choose the size of micropipette for measuring particular volumes. There is a transcript of the video sequences which contains some additional material and images and there is a multiple choice quiz to test understanding; both of these are provided as pdf and word files. This resource is appropriate for foundation stage or first year undergraduate students and would be useful pre-practical preparation.
