Ergonomics is important in pipetting because the repetitive work may cause strain to your arm and thumb. To help prevent strain here are some pipetting recommendations:
- The pipetting display should be visible and easy to read while pipetting
- Operating buttons should be easy to press/turn
- The pipette should be designed to fit right and left-handed users.
- The tools you use most frequently like plates, tips and reagents should be right in front of you
