Given the success of the “New and Revised ISO Standards for Manual and Automated Liquid Handling Instruments” webinar presented by Artel, our subject matter experts met again!
During this panel discussion, the latest 2022 revisions to ISO 8655 and the new ISO 23783 series of standards for automated liquid handling instruments were discussed. The panel discussion began by addressing webinar attendees’ questions, and then they reviewed some frequently asked questions from our customers.
Inquiries about handheld pipettes and automated liquid handlers’ regulations often revolve around routine testing, calibration, frequency, numbers of replicates, and uncertainty measurement, and each of these topics was addressed. Finally, the panel discussion ended with a Q&A session, where attendees asked questions, notably about consensus standards and compliance, non-regulated environments, data point requirements, multichannel pipettes and tolerance limits among others.
