What could be more commonplace in the life sciences workflow than the transfer of liquids? A job well done requires optimal pipetting skills. Yet some liquids—such as organic solvents or highly viscous or detergent-containing solutions—can pose unique challenges in experiments. Pipetting them properly demands acute awareness and special tools. You may find problems lurk even in routine pipetting tasks such as PCR set-ups or changing cell culture medium, due to stickiness of the reaction mix or foam formation of the medium.
Eppendorf is sponsoring a new, free educational webinar, “Solutions Beyond Water,” which will discuss major liquid classes and overcoming the specific challenges they pose. The speakers will demonstrate typical examples encountered in working with problematic liquids and offer valuable tips, tricks, and techniques for handling them successfully—helping you to achieve improved results. Continuing education credits will be offered through the PACE system.
The speakers are Hanae Henke, PhD, field application specialist/liquid handling, and Rudolf Walczak, PhD, global product manager/cell and liquid handling, both from Eppendorf AG, in Germany. Dr. Henke, who has a PhD in medical microbiology, is an expert in positive displacement dispensers and pipettes. She focused on molecular biology and genetics at the university of Hamburg, and deepened her knowledge in food microbiology labs and at Harvard Medical School, in the group of Professor Roberto Kolter, PhD. Dr. Walczak studied biochemistry at the University of Tübingen and at the Rockefeller University, in New York. In his PhD work at EMBL Heidelberg, he investigated mechanisms of post-mitotic nuclear pore complex formation using protein biochemistry, molecular biology, and cell biology methods. Drs. Henke and Walczak’s complete bios are found on the LabRoots website.
The free webinar, hosted by LabRoots, will be presented on April 5, 2016, at 12 am Pacific Time/9 am Central European Summer Time Zone/4 pm Malaysia Time Zone.
