White Paper: Mettler Toledo
While it is important for researchers to choose the most appropriate type and volume range of pipettes, it is equally important to establish a regular pipette testing program to confirm that performance remains within the specified limits, supported by preventive maintenance and calibration if necessary.
The more frequent pipette performance tests, the sooner defective pipettes will be detected and taken out of service, decreasing the risk of incorrect results and helping to minimize the need for corrective action.
For assuring pipette performance, organizations have to follow essential requirements of a pipette care, maintenance plan, regulatory scheduled testing, and maintenance.
What is the use of pipette maintenance? What is the impact of pipette performance testing? What is the future of pipette performance management and storage of pipettes?

The understanding of behavior process of weighing devices is known as calibration. A weighing instrument can be calibrated without making adjustments. Calibration certificates have passed and failed sections to determine whether a measurement device is working ‘well enough’ with the help of tolerance. Standards weights are defined for particular units as test weight. The relationship between the known value and the measured value helps in understanding the behavior of the weighing instrument. Key takeaways from this white paper: Calibration is not the same as an adjustment. The calibration process can be done without adjustments. Tolerance is gathered from a variety of sources and the correct tolerance does not exist. Measurement uncertainty determines the difference between actual value and the measured value. Calculation of measurement uncertainties helps in determining the minimum weight. The relative measurement uncertainty is smaller than the weighing tolerance requirement during weighing more than the minimum weight.

A pipette being the most important of all equipments in a laboratory requires to be well chosen. The pipetting system helps researchers to make informed choices on various equipments for calibration and routine operations. Choosing the right pipette helps in achieving accurate results. Dosing small volumes of liquid into different apparatuses can be tiresome at times, and is practiced on daily basis for research purposes. Thus, it is essential to use high-quality pipettes and controllers for increased level of productivity, and reducing person-hours at laboratories. Read a detailed guideline on Pipetting Systems with the White paper published below to address your concerns: Does your current pipette equipment give results with precision and consuming less time? How does pipetting techniques and use of good quality pipettes made from PVDF polymers enhance your result accuracy? Is the right pipette chosen for conducting the research study?
