transfer pipettes are designed to deliver a single volume precisely (the volume will be indicated near the top of the pipet (i.e., 2 mL).
Above the bulb in the tube is an engraved ring. Fluid must be drawn up the pipet to above the ring and then released slowly until the bottom of the meniscus is exactly at the ring (the tip of the pipet should be touching the wall of the sample vessel as fluid is released). To transfer this volume to a second container, touch the pipette tip to the inside of the new container and allow the liquid to drain out.
measuring pipets are graduated but stop at a baseline before the pipet begins to narrow. (i.e., 10 mL in 1/10, the total volume of the pipet is 10 mL, and it is graduated in 1/10 mL increments)
To accurately transfer fluid with this type of pipet, the meniscus must be precisely on a calibration mark both at the beginning and at the end of a transfer.Near the top of this type of pipet you will find the total volume indicated and the size of the smallest gradations. In this type of pipet the marking near the tip of the pipet should be the same as the total volume listed near the top of the pipet.
pipets are graduated to deliver (there is no base mark).
The appropriate amount of fluid is drawn into the pipet (with the meniscus precisely on the correct mark) and the entire amount is transferred. You will find the total volume indicated and the size of the smallest gradations. There are two types. Those with a single painted or frosted ring at the top should be allowed to simply drain with the tip placed against the side of the receiving vessel. Those with double rings are designed to be "blown out" by pushing a small amount of air out of the pipet, completely emptying it.are labeled with the zero mark at the top of the pipet you will need to subtract the amount you are going to pipet from the total volume of the pipet to determine the exact mark to fill the pipet to. For example if you are going to pipet 6.5 mL using a 10 mL pipet you would fill the pipet to the 3.5 mL mark. To determine the total volume of the pipet look near the top of this type of pipet.
Mechanical Pipet or micropipettes
Mechanical Pipet or micropipettes
Are used for small volume transfers where a high degree of precision is required. Can be set to draw and dispense different volumes. (i.e., less than 1mL).
Mechanical Pipet or micropipettes
They are usually set by turn the knurled knob near the top. The volume is read in the window. Operated by depressing the plunger. On the downward stroke of the plunger there are two stops. The first offers firm resistance, and the second is a hard stop. To take up a volume in the pipet, place a tip on the end of the pipet. Depress the plunger to the first stop and insert into the sample to be transferred. Draw the liquid into the pipet by slowly releasing the plunger. To dispense the liquid from the pipet, place the tip of the pipet into the opening of the well and slowly depress the plunger all the way to the second stop. When the liquid has been dispensed withdraw the pipet tip from the well before releasing the plunger.
A. After selecting the appropriate sized pipet choose the proper pi-pump. The small (blue) pi-pumps are to be used with pipets up to 2.0 mL in volume. The large (green) pi-pumps are to be used with pipets greater than 3.0 mL in volume.
B. Gently push the top (the end cut off flat) of the pipet into the pi-pump.
C. Rotate the wheeled knob with your thumb moving the pi-pump plunger up. This should pull the solution up into the pipet.
D. Once the correct volume has been pulled up into the pipet place the tip of the pipet against the side of the new container and depress the plunger. This should empty the contents of the pipet into the new container.
E. If you are using a blow-out pipet you will need to move the plunger up slightly before filling the pipet. This will allow you to completely blow out the pipet.
A. Turn on the spectrophotometer (left-hand knob on the front of the instrument (A)) and allow it to warm up for at least 15 min.
B. Adjust the wavelength to the appropriate value. The knob on the right top (C)of the instrument controls the wavelength, which is indicated at the left of the digital display.
C. With the sample holder empty and the lid closed, adjust the Zero Adjust Knob (A) until the instrument reads 0% on the transmittance scale. Be sure that the display function is set to transmittance, if not push the "Mode" button until the display is set to transmittance.
D. Carefully insert the appropriate blank tube (cuvette) into the sample holder (E) and close the cover. Be sure you are using a cuvette with white markings. The cuvette's outside surface must be dry and clean, including free of fingerprints!! Use a Kimwipe to clean the cuvette before inserting. The white markings should line up with the notch on the sample holder. It is important to line up the markings. The cuvettes will be scratched otherwise.
E. Adjust the 100% Adjust Knob (B), on the right front of the instrument, until the display reads 100% on the transmittance scale.
F. Remove the blank cuvette and immediately insert the sample cuvette as described in step d above. Do not change any instrument setting! Switch the display to read absorbance by pushing the "Mode"(D) button.
G. Record the value indicated on the absorbance scale.
H. Repeat this procedure for additional cuvettes or wavelengths as required. Always adjust the blank transmittance to 100% before inserting and reading a new set of cuvettes.
an instrument designed to detect the amount of radiant light energy absorbed by molecules. To do this, the instrument must have five basic components: a light source; a prism or diffraction grating; an aperture or slit; a detector (a photoelectric tube); and a digital meter to display the output of the phototube.
When light is reflected from a diffraction grating, it is split into its component colors or wavelengths, which then diverge. Sections of the projected spectrum can be either blocked or allowed to pass through the slit so that only one wavelength will pass to the other sections. (The position of the grating is adjustable so that the region of the spectrum projected on the slit can be changed.). Light that passes through the slit travels to the phototube, where it creates an electric current proportional to the number of photons striking the phototube. If a digital meter is attached to the phototube, the electric current output can be measured and recorded. The scale is usually calibrated in two ways: percent transmittance, which runs on a scale from 0 to 100; and absorbance, or optical density units, which runs from 0 to 2.
As concentration ___________ the absorbance also__________. This relationship allows one to convert an absorbance value into a concentration.
