Pipetting is an every-day task in a cell culture lab, done so often that it's rarely actively thought of while performing the task. This educational webinar gives an insight into how pipetting techniques can improve reproducibility of experiments and decrease the risk of contamination when working with eukaryotic cells. Industry experts will discuss the potential lying in pipetting techniques to increase the quality of results.

Participants will learn the proper handling of pipetting tools and how this can help to reduce the risk of contamination. They will gain a better understanding of how to differentiate pipetting tools, according to applications in cell culture, and how to set up of the working space in the biological safety cabinet to maintain a sterile environment.

Two members of the Eppendorf team will present during this webinar; Dr. Hanae A. Henke, an application specialist on liquid handling, and Dr. Jessica Wagener, an application specialist cell handling.

Henke earned both her Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science in biology from the University of Hamburg. She joined Eppendorf after finishing her doctorate in medical microbiology on the topic of S. epidermidis hip joint infections at the university hospital in Hamburg. She focused on molecular biology and genetics early during her studies of biology at the University of Hamburg and deepened her knowledge in food microbiology laboratories and at Harvard Medical School.

After studying Biology at the Universities of Marburg and Düsseldorf, Wagener investigated apoptosis mechanisms in different cell lines for her diploma thesis. Following one year as research associate working with primary cells, she started to work towards her doctorate focusing on reproductive biology at the Medical School Essen. She joined Eppendorf in April 2012, shortly after completing her doctorate.

LabRoots will host the event November 2, 2017, beginning at 7:00 a.m. PDT, 4:00 p.m. CET. To learn more about this event, discover the continuing education credits available, or to register for free, click here.
