Hello everyone, I am new to the community. its nice to be here.

I would like to inquire about how pipettes are calibrated in your laboratories and how often

Or better still how do you cope with faulty pipettes are poor volumes or leaking pipettes.

There is a facility here in Lagos where all these problems are addressed. They offer pipette sales, calibrations and total maintenance

Thanks

What exactly do you mean by calibrating pipette? just hearing of it.

Hello,

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.

Thanks
