Being able to effectively wash pipettes is key for recycling. This describes how the wash station works with the LabBot. The pipettes tip move into the washbasin and are washed outside by fluid when the washing pump is turned on. The excess fluid is drawn into the waste basin and this goes to waste. While the tips are being washed on the outside, the syringe pumps perfuse fluid through the inside of the pipettes.
These videos demonstrate how a washing macro can be set up.
