A fixed micropipette with a volume of 10µL is a pipette that is set to dispense a fixed volume of 10 microliters. Unlike a variable micropipette, which allows adjustable volume settings within a specific range, a fixed micropipette is pre-set to deliver a single, specific volume and cannot be adjusted.
Fixed micropipettes are commonly used in laboratories when there is a need for consistent and precise dispensing of a specific volume. These pipettes have a fixed volume adjustment and do not have a mechanism for changing the volume setting.
To use a fixed 10µL micropipette, you simply attach the appropriate disposable pipette tip to the pipette, immerse the tip into the liquid sample, and depress the plunger to dispense the fixed volume of 10µL. These pipettes are typically designed to deliver the fixed volume accurately and reproducibly.
Fixed micropipettes are often used in applications where a specific volume is required repeatedly, such as when preparing standards, adding reagents, or performing specific assays. They offer convenience and consistency, eliminating the need to adjust the volume setting each time.
It’s important to note that fixed micropipettes are typically dedicated to a specific volume and cannot be adjusted to dispense other volumes. Therefore, if different volumes are required, multiple fixed micropipettes with different volume settings or a variable micropipette would be necessary.
