Why Is Ergonomics Important in Pipetting?
Pipetting is one of the most common tasks performed in a laboratory on a daily basis. Studies show that more than 40% of lab professionals suffer from pipetting-caused disorders. In addition to causing discomfort to the user, the hand and arm injuries reduce the working ability and thus the accuracy, precision and reliability of the results.
By becoming aware of your personal ergonomic risk factors and eliminating them, you can reduce your risk of repetitive strain injury (RSI) while pipetting.
