Micropipettes or piston-operated volumetric apparatus (POVA) are used to accurately transfer small quantities of liquid 0.1 μL to 10,000 μL. Used in biology, biochemistry, forensic, pharmaceutical laboratories – commonly available in 1, 8 or 12 channels. Parts include plunger, tip ejector, volume adjuster, volume display and shaft. Manual and Digital.
Calibration of micropipettes at Metcal Technologies undergo Leakage Tests, Functional Tests and Calibration Checks. Calibration report include 30-data check for each channel, mean, standard deviation and overall Pass/Fail performance status. Adjustment is performed where readings are found out of tolerance or specifications.
Preventive Maintenance (PM) proactively checks and replace parts that fail or have worn out. Micropipettes are dissembled, cleaned inside and outside, decontaminated, pistons are polished and/or re-greased, seals and/or o-rings are replaced where needed and then reassembled.
Micropipettes are highly precise instrument. Exposure to temperature, pressure and volatile solvents can lead to inaccurate and lower dispensed volume. If you notice your micropipette dispensing out of range or not performing as usual, then it’s time to have it calibrated or serviced.
Metcal can provide ISO 17025 accredited micropipette calibration services from 0.1 μL to 10,000 μL with best measurement uncertainty +/-0.03 μL – based on ISO 8655 standards.
Value-added service options include Accuracy adjustment, Preventive maintenance (PM), Parts replacement and Repair. Premium 1-Day turnaround calibration services available.
