Humpage Technology Ltd - Pipette Calibration Module

Key Features:

  • Unlimited test plans (procedure templates) can be created and re-used
  • Software communicates with all makes of laboratory balance - no need to write down measurements
  • Fast, user-friendly interface guides you through the procedure with clear, audio and visual prompts
  • Z-Factor, imprecision and inaccuracy are calculated automatically
  • Produces multi-page PDF calibration certificates

Gravimetric pipette calibration is one of the most accurate ways to calibrate a pipette and is by far the most widely-used method.

The technique involves weighing the volume of liquid (de-ionised water) dispensed by the pipette (known as an "aliquiot") and converting the weight into the equivalent volume using what is known as the Z-FACTOR (which is very closely related to density and specific gravity).

Readings are repeated (usually 5 are taken) for three volumes that cover the range of the pipette (Low - 20%, Medium - 50% and High - 90%). So, for example, if a 200 µl pipette were being calibrated, we would record the following measurements:

  • 5 readings at 40 µl
  • 5 readings at 100 µl
  • 5 readings at 180 µl
This method can involve a lot of manual work. But this can be reduced significantly by using the right software such as the Calibration Toolbox ADO Pipette Module.

Calibration Toolbox ADO - Pipette Calibration Module

Caliso offers you the Pipette Calibration Module, an add-on to Calibration Toolbox ADO which is designed to reduce significantly the amount of work involved. This is achieved by automatically recording water weight readings from your laboratory balance and then performing all necessary calculations so that you don't have to.

Once you've obtained your measurements and the calculations have been performed, a PDF calibration certificate is only a few clicks away.

How it works

Step 1: Connect your balance and configure the port settings

Step 2: Load your calibration job list

Step 3: Enter temperature, humidity and barometric pressure (for z-factor calculation).

Click the Start Test button and simply follow the on-screen and audio messages. You will be prompted to discharge the pipette (aliquot) or when a suspect value is measured.

Step 4: Let the software guide you through the procedure, and when the test is complete, all the masses have been converted to volumes, and the z-factor, inprecision and inaccuracy calculated for you.

.........and finally, Step 5: Let Calibration Toolbox ADO generate your PDF calibration certificate.

Take Calibration Toolbox ADO, add the Pipette Module, and we think that you'll have the best pipette calibration system available anywhere.

There are, of course, other Pipette programs available, but that's the point, they ONLY DO PIPETTES. Calibration Toolbox ADO, on the other hand, gives you all of the extra functionality, that you would expect from the world's leading calibration management software.

Enough said !!
