Opentrons pipettes are configurable devices used to move liquids throughout the working area during the execution of protocols. Flex and OT-2 each have their own pipettes, which are available for use in the Python API.
Pages in this section of the documentation cover:
Loading pipettes into your protocol.
Pipette characteristics, such as how fast they can move liquid and how they move around the deck.
The partial tip pickup configuration for the Flex 96-Channel Pipette, which uses only 8 channels for pipetting. Full and partial tip pickup can be combined in a single protocol.
The volume modes of Flex 50 µL pipettes, which must operate in low-volume mode to accurately dispense very small volumes of liquid.
