Significant binding of chloroquine occurs in the liver, kidney and spleen (Taylor and Francis 1987).
For a very short period of three days, ten male rats were exposed to chloroquine phosphate injection intraperitoneally /IP) for three days. The treated rats received 0.125ml/100g body weight of chloroquine phosphate injection intraperitoneally. Control rats received the same amount of normal saline intraperitoneally.
Histologically, the micrographs of control and treated rats liver were compared. Investigations confirmed defects in microscopic structures. In the liver there were few blood vessels in the treated rats compared with controls.

Bio-fertilizer is a natural organic fertilizer known that helps to provide all the nutrients required by the plants and helps to increase the quality of the soil with a natural microorganism environment. Bio-fertilizer has been identified as an alternative to chemical fertilizer to increase soil fertility and crop production. These are the most advanced bio-technology necessary to support developing organic agriculture, sustainable agriculture, green agriculture and non-pollution agriculture. These bio-organic fertilizers can increase the output, improve the quality and it is responsible for agriculture environment. Today, it has been widely used with excellent results in all kinds of plants in several countries. In case of Nepal where chemical fertilizers is not practiced much more or not access to all farmers, in such condition promoting on utilization of biofertilizers in agricultural activities can boost the agricultural productivity which is economically viable, socially just and environmental friendly leading sustainable agricultural development.

Thanks for your reply and question.
Pipette calibration is a standard practice for most laboratories that use micropipettes in their daily operations.

Manufacturers always state that when you buy a pipette you need to verify its volume. After about 3 or 6 months you need to check that its delivering the accurate volume for your procedures.

A pipette is a precision instrument and over time after several uses it goes out of its actual calibration and users are not aware that the pipette is not delivering the desired volume.

it is recommended that pipettes are calibrated every 3 or 6 months in order to check this.

This is a quality control measure and also ensures that pipettes can last longer through regular maintenance. During maintenance, blocked pipettes are unblocked and serviced to a functional state.

I hope this helps.
