Share Article

LabRoots will host this webinar June 5, in which attendees will gain a better understanding of the best practices behind handling a variety of liquids, including pipetting techniques and instrumentation available.

Hanae A. Henke, PhD Content Editor, Eppendorf AG Hamburg

Viscous liquids are a challenge in every lab that deals with them. Depending on how viscous a liquid is, pipetting is either impossible or it poses several problems that significantly reduce accuracy, precision and processing speed.

In this webinar, which is sponsored by Eppendorf, participants will learn about the basics of viscosity, how to measure it, about different types of liquids and what influence viscosity has on pipetting results. They will also learn how to prevent problems with viscous liquids, including Newtonian vs. Non-Newtonian liquids, by using different pipetting techniques and appropriate instruments.

The speaker will provide tips and best practices on handling viscous liquids. She will also cover the latest pipetting techniques and instruments available.

Dr. Hanae A. Henke, the content editor for Eppendorf AG Hamburg, will be the speaker for this event. Hanae joined Eppendorf in 2015 as application specialist for liquid handling right after finishing her doctorate in medical microbiology on the topic of S. epidermidis hip joint infections at the university hospital in Hamburg.

LabRoots will host this event June 5, 2018, beginning at 6:30 a.m. PDT, 3:30 p.m. CEST. To learn more about this webinar, discover the continuing education credits offered, or to register for free, click here.
