Laboratory glass and plastic ware — Volumetric instruments — Methods for testing of capacity and for use


This document provides methods for the testing, calibration and use of volumetric instruments made
from glass and plastic in order to obtain the best accuracy in use.
NOTE Testing is the process by which the conformity of the individual volumetric instrument with the
appropriate standard is determined, resulting in the determination of its error of measurement at one or more
This document is applicable to volumetric instruments with nominal capacities in the range of 100 µl
to 10 000 ml. These include single-volume pipettes (see ISO 648), graduated pipettes (see ISO 835),
burettes (see ISO 385), volumetric flasks (see ISO 1042 and ISO 5215), and graduated measuring
cylinders (see ISO 4788 and ISO 6706).
The methods are not intended for testing of volumetric instruments with capacities below 100 µl such
as micro-glassware.
This document does not deal specifically with pycnometers as specified in ISO 3507. However, the
procedures specified for the determination of volume of glassware can, for the most part, also be
followed for the determination of a pycnometer volume. For some types of pycnometers, special
handling can be necessary.
