What's the recommended temperature range for the OT-2?

We recommend using your OT-2 in a 20-24 °C environment.

Temperatures outside this range can make pipettes perform less accurately and precisely, possibly outside their specifications.

Additionally, more extreme temperatures can shorten the OT-2's expected lifetime.

What's the recommended humidity range for the OT-2?

We recommend keeping relative humidity no higher than 60%. We've lifetime tested for up to 3 years of average use in those conditions.

Can the OT-2 operate in a 100% relative humidity environment?

We haven't specifically tested in a 100% RH environment, but it could damage certain components of the OT-2 over time. For example, 100% RH is outside of the stepper motors' suggested operating and storage environment.
