In response to the growing demand by users of automated pipetting systems, Artel presented a proposal on the development of an international standard addressing the performance assessment of such instruments. The proposal, presented by A. Bjoern Carle, PhD during the ACHEMA conference in Frankfurt, Germany, was well received and sparked a lively debate about issues involved.
If you are interested in participating in this effort, please contact your country’s representative to ISO TC48 (in the U.S.A., this is ASTM committee E41.91). If you are interested, Artel is happy to provide further information about the proposal and details about how to contact the ISO TC48 mirror committees. For more information on how to participate in the standards developing process, please contact Dr. Carle.
