NOTE General requirements and definitions of terms for piston-operated volumetric apparatus are given in ISO 8655-1. The gravimetric reference measurement procedure for the determination of volume is given in ISO 8655-6. The photometric reference measurement procedure for the determination of volume is given in ISO 8655-8. Alternative methods for the determination of volume are described in ISO 8655-7. For safety requirements of electrically powered pipettes, see regional or national safety standards.
