Tips and Hints
 
Top Tips to Make Your Article Discoverable Online
Publishing your work is just the first step; you want to make sure that your research is noticed. Use the checklist provided to increase the chances that your article is discovered by others in the field.
 
 
Proper Use of Micropipettors
You use them all day/every day. But, there’s more to using a micropipettor than just depressing the button with your thumb. To maximize experimental reproducibility, be sure to follow the tips here.

And, for everything you need to know about best laboratory practices for measuring volume, check out the newly published article in Current Protocols Essential Laboratory Techniques by Davis and Zanella -Volume Measurement.

Read more about best laboratory practices for measuring volume here! It’s available and free until the end of July.
