 When using the MPA series
 When using a pipette that has not been used for a couple of hours we
 recommend aspirating and dispensing it prior to subsequent use. This
 will ensure smooth piston movement allowing for more precise

 Pipette Operation Guide ~ for accurate dispensing with pipettes ~
 How can you dispense viscous or volatile samples more accurately?
 This document explains why such samples often lead to errors and
 effective countermeasures you can take for them. It also summarizes
 the MPA Series' resistance to organic solvents, etc.
