The pipetting problem
When thinking about ergonomic and pain issues in the lab, is there anything more relevant than pipetting problems, particularly for those labs invested heavily in manual liquid handling and cell culture? Simply put, repetitive motion and hand strain are serious issues. In addition to risk of RSI, accuracy and precision can be compromised and lab productivity can suffer as a result.
Proper posture is key
Proper posture is the most important element in establishing good ergonomic practices. During repetitive tasks such as pipetting, maintaining body positions that provide a maximum of strength with the least amount of muscular stress is important to minimize the risk of injury.
