Analytical procedures often require liquids to be transferred quantitatively or solutions which need to be prepared for quantitative determination. When preparing solutions or transferring liquid quantitatively the type of equipment used will depend on the accuracy that is required, as well as the volume of liquid that is involved. This module will discuss the different types of volumetric lab equipment and how each piece should be used correctly.

 

Topics include:

  • Volumetric glassware
  • Volumetric glassware markings, grade, and cleaning
  • Temperature, solution, and mixing effects
  • Selection and use of volumetric glassware
  • Parallax error
  • Checking the accuracy of volumetric glassware and carrying out a calibration
  • Use of micropipettes
  • Modes of pipetting
  • Choosing the correct pipette
  • Solutions of known concentration
