  3. 3. Typical description of an experiment in scientific literature Try to understand it even if you are a scientist…. ???!!! Position the metaphase spindle at 3 o’clock and hold it with holding pipette. Apply piezo pulses to penetrate the zona pellucida. Touch the metaphase plate with the enucleation pipette. Aspirate the spindle and withdraw the pipette.
