Micropipettes2

  1. 1. Micropipettes & Aseptic techniques In the micropipettes and aseptic techniques workshop, we practiced our skills in micro-pipetting and how to isolate bacteria colonies on Petri dishes. For the micropipette section ofthe workshop we learnt the importance of pipetting adequately for precise volumes. Weconducted a basic experiment where we mixed different substances at different volumes, andwatched them change color. When we compared the colors with our neighbors we noticed thatthe colors were different even though we were all using the same substances and volumes.With this we were able to see that for a solution to work properly it must have adequatevolume. In the aseptic techniques part of the workshop we were taught how important thealgor solution is in the plate, since it is a substance that bacteria cannot eat through. We alsolearned how to isolate bacteria colonies without contaminating the plate. Isolating bacteriacolonies properly is very important so you can be sure that you’re studying a specific type ofbacteria. These techniques can be easily applied in any sort of research related to bacterial andmicrobial studies.
