This year marks an especially important milestone for ISO standards relating to liquid handling laboratory equipment, with the release of the updated ISO 8655 series for handheld devices, and the publication of the new ISO 23783 series for automated liquid handlers, providing one cohesive set of best practices and test procedures for all liquid handling devices.
Join Karlton Moore for this eagerly awaited interview with Dr. George Rodrigues, VP of Scientific Affairs at Artel, as they discuss why those new standards are important for life science labs to improve data quality, lab productivity and facilitate regulatory compliance. This lively duo covers the differences between calibrations and routine tests, touching on multichannel pipettes, volume settings, number of replicates and maximum permissible errors.
