Each set: P-20, 0.1-20 µ l P-200, 20-200 µ l P-1000, 200-1000 µ l Quantitative Liquid Transfer Your Cart: 0 Items / $0.00 Graduated cylinders 1. Set the desired Volume by dialing downward. 2. Attach a new pipette tip firmly 3. Depress the plunger to the first positive stop 4. Holding the Pipetman vertically, immerse the tip into the sample liquid to a depth of: 1-2 mm P-20 and P-200 or 2-4 mm P-1000. 5. Allow the plunger to return slowly to the Up position. Never snap up plunger . 6. Wait for 1-2 seconds to draw full-volume of sample. 7. Depress the plunger to the Second Stop. This severs to rinse the tip. 8. Repeat Steps 5 and 6 to draw sample again into tip. Operation Procedures Operation Procedures 9. Withdrawn the tip from sample liquid, wipe any fluid remaining on the outside of the tip using a Kimwipes, do not touch the tip opening. 10.
