Microwell aspiration

In order to accurate aspirate small volumes it is important to make sure the air bubbles are mostly out of the lines and there are 2 pages that describe how to do this:

  1. Removing air bubbles - This technique allows you to manually perfuse the lines with a syringe.
  2. Putting together a pipette flushing macro - This uses the multichannel syringe pump to clean out the lines

Volume aspiration benchmarking

Here is some benchmarking data comparing 1,2.5,5 and 10 microliters. Benchmarking was done using Rainin LTS RT-L10 tips
