What Are Pipettes?
Pipettes are standard laboratory tools used in research and development labs in chemistry, food, biomedical, and other industries.
Lab pipettes are used to measure and transfer small quantities of liquid from one container to another.
Allometrics is the top-rated ISO 17025 accredited laboratory

Pipettes come in an array of shapes and sizes depending on their intended use. The most common pipette types include:
Volumetric pipettes are famed for their precise measurement capabilities. They are available in many sizes, with average volumes of 10, 25, and 50 mL, researchers and lab technicians use them to make lab solutions from a base stock and to prepare a solution for a process known as titration.
A type of macro pipette characterized for having its volume marked along the tube in increments. They are generally considered to be less accurate than volumetric pipettes.
Micropipettes typically used in chemistry, forensic, biology, pharmaceutical, and drug research labs to measure and transfer minimal quantities of liquid.
Micropipettes use disposable tips to aspire liquids; these tips vary depending on the specific application and need to be changed after every use to avoid cross-contamination.
It’s important to note that micropipette calibration is required every 3-6 months to ensure both its accuracy and precision
What Are Burettes?
Burettes are laboratory instruments used in quantitative chemical analysis to measure the volume of a liquid or a gas, especially in titrations.
It consists of a graduated glass tube with a stopcock or spigot at one end.
The Importance of Pipette Calibration and Burette Calibration
Pipettes are widely used in science labs to transfer liquids in milliliter and microliter volumes. Therefore, the importance of accuracy and precision of these instruments cannot be overestimated, as even a minuscule inaccuracy can create a significant error in lab research results.
For pipette calibration to be ISO 8655 complaint, specific environmental conditions including temperature, relative humidity (RH), and barometric pressure must be present. Therefore, you should only entrust your pipette calibration to an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory as the one Allometrics has.
Similarly, labs use burettes to deliver known volumes of a liquid. According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the tolerated error of a 25-mL Class A burette should not exceed 0.03 mL.
This means that for labs conducting careful analytical work, the measurement accuracy of their burettes must comply with the standard. To achieve compliance, each buret requires periodic calibration to guarantee that the buret markings conform to these standards.
What to Expect
Allometrics offers comprehensive pipette calibration services. With more than 40 years of experience backing our services, we can service virtually every brand of pipette available on the market today. Our trained technicians will calibrate your pipettes to specific industry standards.
All our pipette calibration services for all makes and models of both single-channel and multi-channel pipettes comply with ISO 8655 tolerances.
Please keep in mind that we are unable to do ISO 17025 calibrations on multi-channel pipettes.
When you send us your pipettes for we guarantee that our technicians will:
- Disassemble the pipette and thoroughly clean all its internal and external parts
- Conduct a leak check
- Polish piston and lubricate parts
- When needed, replace seals, O-rings, and friction rings
- Conduct gravimetric testing on 6-place ISO 17025 accredited balances which are certified prior to use.
- Place a non-smudge, traceable label on all pipettes listing calibration date/calibration due time
- Provide full documentation of calibration service
- Deliver Certificate of Calibration
