Pipettes are laboratory devices which measure and transfer small volumes of liquid for various lab operations. As the name suggests, pipette calibration is the process of configuring a pipette to provide reliable results within an acceptable range. Calibration minimizes factors which can cause inaccurate measurements during pipetting.
Why is it necessary?
The calibration of pipettes is necessary for providing accurate and precise pipetting results. Accuracy and precision in pipette measurements are essential factors in pipette measuring, as any discrepancy in the volume of liquids dispensed can affect the results greatly.
Calibrating the pipettes inspects whether or not the equipment is dispensing the proper volume of liquid. This process also validates if the pipettes require adjustments.
As a medical professional, you have a responsibility to ensure that your medical equipment is accurate, safe, and reliable at all times. Also, regulatory entities such as the DOH require laboratories and hospitals to have their measuring devices routinely calibrated with relevant records from accredited calibration providers.

Also, regulatory entities such as the DOH require laboratories and hospitals to have their measuring devices routinely calibrated with proper documentation from accredited calibration service providers.
When should you have them calibrated?
To ensure pipette precision and accuracy, the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute recommends for pipettes be calibrated every 3 to 6 months.
