Introduction:
The labs 1a and 1b are about the calibration of the micropipette and the peristaltic pump.
The micropipettes calibration is determine by the volume calculated by density and weight.
The peristaltic pump is calibrated by the volume flow rate determined by weight, density
and time.
1a.
The micropipette used (361107) was calibrated at 100uL, 250uL, 500uL, 750uL and
1000uL. The average output obtained for 5 trials. This data was used below to calculate of
calibration plot.
The volume is the amount that was the expected delivery and the output
volume average is the actual amount of volume deliverd. The error bars are too small to be
seen but they are there.
Volume vs. Output Volume Average:
This is the calibration plot of the micropipette. The
volume is the amount that was the expected delivery and the output volume average is the
actual amount of volume delivered. The trend line is represented by the equation listed.
The slope of the calibration curve should be at one meaning when the micropipette is set to
