diji STANDARD, meniscus and red line reading
diji ACCUSAFE plastic, meniscus reading only
Ensure diji is equipped with a meniscus operation Syrette (pipette).This has a bottom graduation mark less than total Syrette volume e.g. 10mL = 9.3mL – – 25mL = 23mL
- Hold the hand-piece in the palm of your hand with the piston rod exiting the hand-piece under your thumb.
- Stroke the piston rod with your thumb or pull the ball on the end of the piston rod upwards to suck fluid and downwards to dispense. Pull steadily without causing cavitation.
- Before filling, wet the seal with some of the fluid being handled by thumbing up and down with the seal in the jet.
To use by reading the Meniscus: The meniscus is best used when dispensing the full Syrette volume.
The full Syrette volume has been dispensed when the jet is empty. Start filling with the top of the seal at about the 22 ml mark, to avoid the seal protruding into the liquid.Thumb upwards to fill diji to above the desired level. Thumb downwards to set meniscus on the zero graduation. Read the bottom of the meniscus at the top of the graduation line. Dispense with the tip of the diji Syrette touching the side of the receptacle.
Thumb the seal rapidly up and down in the jet to remove most of the air from below the seal. Start filling with the seal fully in the jet. Thumb upwards to set the red line exactly on the negative graduation e.g. -2. Remove drips from the Syrette tip. Dispense with the tip of the diji Syrette touching the side of the receptacle. When using the red line, make sure you do not draw air into the Syrette accidentally while dispensing, as this will result in inaccuracies in volume.
