This event focuses on the evolving subject of ISO & NIST standards in the field of automated liquid handling & pipetting (ALH). We hope to discuss the current state & future of volume verification, validation, optimization, & calibration standards necessary for labs. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has published standards for liquid handling for labs but the responsibility of applying these guidelines to the operation of ALHs rests on individual labs. Real world applications demand different levels of precision & accuracy, & understanding these reproducibility targets is critical for standardizing methods for labs. Developments in relevant ISO standards including IWA15:2015 will be discussed & connected back to the real world applications for benefiting industry.
