Remove the tubing from the clip on the back wall of the instrument. Locate the wire and small plug that connects the pipette to the back wall of the instrument. Disconnect the plug by pressing down firmly on the tab at the top of the plug and pulling straight out. Remove the two thumb screws on the square block that mounts the pipette to its Holder. Lift the pipette up and forward from the Holder. Next, remove the new pipette assembly from the plastic container. Remove the larger outer shield, then carefully remove the small inner shield pulling down from the top of the pipette. Hold the pipette with the flat side of the mounting block facing forward. Carefully fit the tip down into the slot of the Holder bar and fit the mounting block into the Holder. Be sure that the tip doesn't touch the Holder as it's being inserted.

Discard the old pipette in an appropriate container. After the new pipette assembly is installed, calibrate the instrument. Refer to the Clinitek Atlas operating manual for the instructions.
