This part of ISO 8655 specifies the general requirements for piston-operated volumetric apparatus. It is applicable to piston pipettes, piston burettes, dilutors and dispensers. It furthermore defines terms for the use of pistonoperated volumetric apparatus and gives user recommendations. ISO 8655 is not applicable to medical products intended for use on human beings, e.g. for medical syringes. NOTE For metrological requirements, maximum permissible errors, requirements for marking and information to be provided for users for piston-operated volumetric apparatus, see ISO 8655-2 for piston pipettes, see ISO 8655-3 for piston burettes, see ISO 8655-4 for dilutors and see ISO 8655-5 for dispensers. Conformity testing (type evaluation) of piston-operated volumetric apparatus is given in ISO 8655-3. Alternative test methods such as photometric and titrimetric methods will be the subject of a future Part 7 to ISO 8655. For all other tests (e.g. quality assurance by the supplier, analytical and measuring equipment quality assurance by the user) see ISO 8655-6 or alternative test methods.
