Yes! You can slow it down to pipette more viscous liquids, and vice versa.

The speeds can be set through aspirate_speed and dispense_speed. The values are in millimeters/minute, and default to aspirate_speed=300 and dispense_speed=500.

Example:

pipette = instruments.Pipette(    
    axis='b',    
    name='my-p200-multichannel',    
    max_volume=200,    
    min_volume=20,    
    channels=8,    
    aspirate_speed=300,    
    dispense_speed=500
)
