There are various pipette types that use a vacuum above the liquid-holding chamber and release the vacuum to draw up and distribute the liquid.

A Disposable Pipette is not a complicated lab tool and it can be used for rough measurements. It is essential to follow a standard pipetting technique. You should always use a new pipette and dispose of it after testing, aspirate the liquid at a 90-degree angle and dispense at a 45-degree angle, and touch off to ensure the liquid is dispensed. 

A Serological Pipette is most commonly used in laboratories to transfer milliliter volumes of liquid less than 1 ml to up to 50 ml. These pipettes can vary from sterile, plastic, and disposable to glass, and reusable.  

A Single-Channel Pipette includes one single head to aspirate or dispense accurate levels of liquid through the disposable tip. This Pipette can be used for various applications in laboratories which only have a small throughput.

A Digital Pipette can come in single or multi-channel variants with a display that allows adjusting the volume of liquid fast and easily. The plunger can be moved digitally, reducing strain on the wrist. The Digital Pipette also ensures the liquid doesn’t remain behind, skewing results.

Before measuring liquid with a pipette, it is important to consider the type of test and the pipette type which fits the best for it. The wrong type of instrument can significantly impact your test results. Precision and repeatability are the most essential aspects of using pipettes.
