Volumetric Performance Assessment of Automated Liquid Handling Systems with ISO IWA 15

In 2015, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) published a new document, ISO IWA 15, which fills the void in ISO documents describing standardized ways of determining the performance of automated liquid handling systems. While ISO standards exist for the calibration of piston-operated pipettes and other volumetric apparatus (ISO 8655, parts 1 to 7) and volumetric glass pipettes (ISO 4787), there was no global document addressing the performance assessment of automated liquid handling systems. This void has been closed with the development and publication of ISO IWA 15...
