She’s using the pipette as a weapon. I’d like to think that she would forcibly eject the tip into her attacker’s eye.”

Ok, I was emailed about these shirts. At first I was like, “I will not be your shill !!!!’ However, this one made me laugh because I like both pie (apple) and pets (I have 3, endless fur). You can win this, or something. http://solutions.pipette.com/neuroscience-promo-t-shirts/

Here is a woman that is entirely confident in her pipetting abilities. I hope that isn’t methyl mercury or some such thing. Thanks to http://corkescrews.tumblr.com/ for the tip.

More Farscape. Pipettes are really versatile tools. You can pipette your own hand in some sort of autoerotic gesture, or save some dudes life. Your pick!

Thanks to follower SC http://airzephyrus.tumblr.com/ for the gifs!

Ok. Under most circumstances, jabbing a pipette into your friend will not revive them. However, this seems to work in Farscape. I love the dude’s reaction at the end….apparently dude’s breath is off.

Hey guys. You might have figured it out, but we are starting to run out of material to post. If you know of any bad pipetting or otherwise funny lab technique from TV or film, or have any funny stuff from your own lab send it in at pipetjockey AT gmail DOT com

Clipped from CSI: Miami, obviously. Apologies for the bad centrifuge joke, it was the best I could come up with.

Thanks for the tip, Anonymous blog follower! This is from Fringe season 2 episode 16. He is using some kind of screen to look into the past. Notice his shock and horror at the end from seeing his own ridiculous use of a micropipette! Also, I’m not entirely sure there is any liquid in the pipette tip.

Don’t use your pipette as some sort of sexual gratification tool. Actually, do what you want, you’re an adult.

Check out this cool pipette tip video set to the RATATAT song “Bare feast”

Born to pipette!

I just remembered that show, “Fringe.” Not only is 99% of the “science” on that show totally bogus, the main science guy clearly never had proper training on how to handle a pipette. Trying to track down this episode to make a gif…..

Ok, so this is Todd Alquist from Breaking Bad Season 5, epsiode 13. While this isn’t really that incorrect, he isn’t using a pipet-aid (I call it a pipet-gun). Let’s just call it wrong because everyone hates this freaking sociopath!

Anyone who does science, or who has even taken a high school chemistry class, knows that you DO NOT MOUTH PIPETTE. Here is a really great blog post from discover magazine on the history of mouth pipetting. The gif above is adapted from an old video demonstration found on the blog.

As we’ve seen, it’s not often that TV and film get the whole “pipetting” thing. Major props to Sherlock for getting this correct. 
edit: still no lab coat or gloves. At least he has the technique down though!
