Abstract

Background: Majority of biochemical investigations requires pipette for delivery of reagents and samples in clinical laboratory so that pipette that is used for the same must be properly calibrated for accurate results.
Aims: The aim of this study to investigate that the impact of automatic pipette calibration on quality control results.
Methodology: Total 6 pipettes are used in our study. Among them 3 pipettes are with volume 1.0 ml and another 3 are with volume 0.1 ml, all pipettes were examined for work calibration. Distilled water weighing method is used for calculation of accuracy and precision of pipettes. Control sera of glucose and uric acid is used for determining accuracy and Precision of pipettes.
Result & Conclusion: Uncalibrated pipette had high effect on accuracy of control data as well as patients results therefore it is recommended that all pipette that is used in clinical laboratory must be periodically checked for calibration.
