This activity introduces students to micropipettes. These precision instruments have become standard equipment in most biotechnology and medical laboratories, but they remain beyond the budget for many school science laboratories. Sections of this module are included in each of the other BSC CityLab modules. The activities in Pipetting 101 introduce students to the concept of an assay. Pre-lab activities are included and recommended for students who would benefit from review in metric measuring and math concepts.
This module was developed with assistance from the faculty and staff at Boston University School of Medicine's CityLab program.
The curriculum materials for Pipetting 101 will soon be available as pdf files.
