Objective: Students will be able to perform a micro- and macropipette calibration using the gravimetric method in order to determine the accuracy and precision of our micropipettes.

Big Idea: Calibration of our pipettes in the biotechnology laboratory enables us to become aware of the difference between dispensed volume and the selected volume which may be a source of unknown error.
