Seradyn is now offering the portable PCS¦ Pipette Calibration System for the verification of the volumetric delivery of pipettes. Designed to aid in quality assurance, the PCS automatically computes pipette performance statistics and provides internal system diagnostics including self calibration.

Volume Verification: The Artel PCS from Seradyn
The PCS combines reagents with a patented photometer. Users of the PCS sequentially pipette aliquots of sample solution into a vial of blank solution in the instrument. The PCS then mixes the reagents and calculates sample volume for a predetermined set of data points. Following each sample delivery, the volume of liquid delivered is displayed on the alphanumeric display of the PCS. A ten point calibration, as recommended by NCCLS, can be performed and documented in under five minutes. The document, which is automatically printed, includes all information typically necessary for lab quality assurance records.

Several features of the PCS have impressed Glen...
