Volume calibration of 1000 µl micropipettes

Project Description

The main purpose of this project is to compare results and method calibration of two 1000 µl micropipettes (one of variable volume and one of fixed volume).

This comparison will allow the participating laboratories to test the agreement of their results and uncertainties despite the different used equipment and different calibration method. Also a behaviour test will be preformed in order to evaluate the response of the micropipette under specific conditions. A protocol will be drafted and will include a description of the tests to be preformed and guidelines for the reporting of the results and uncertainties.

This project should not exceed one year including circulation of the micropipettes and report presentation.
