MAINTENANCE
To maintain the durability of Biosystem’s pipettes proper “Care and Maintenance” is required.
SHORT-TERM MAINTENANCE
  • Hold the micropipette horizontally.
  • If you want to increase the volume move the plunger clockwise with your thumb, and to decrease the volume move it anti- clockwise.

Note: The calibration has to be checked after cleaning the pipette.

LONG-TERM MAINTENANCE

If the micropipette is used daily, it is recommended to check the calibration every three months.

AUTOCLAVING
  • Biosystem (Color) model pipettes are partially autoclaved (i.e. only the “Tip Cone Module”) at 121°C (248°F) for 20 minutes.
  • After autoclaving, the autoclaved part must be cooled down and left to dry overnight before use.

Note : The calibration has to be checked after every autoclaving.

maintenance_03
  • 4. Placethe”tipcone”,”tipejector”,”shaft”,”pistone”,”o-ring” and “spring” intothe beaker containing 70% ethyle alchole
    and keave for atleast 30mints.
  • 5. After performing the above procedure remove the components from the beaker and rinse them with distilled water,then dry preferably with warm air,for atleast an hour.
  • 6. Re-grease the piston as described in tje instruction manu.

Note: Every 6 month when you performing Decontimination procedure kindly check ‘ 0 ‘ -ring and if possible kinly replaced if  necessary.The calibration has to be checked after cleaning the pipette.
