Best practices dictate that pipettes undergo preventive maintenance and calibration at least once per year. Calibration involves dispensing set volumes of a liquid, usually water, into the weighing pan of a calibrated balance. Service personnel correct for temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, and then compare the expected weight to the actual weight.

Centrifuge heat build-up
Forgive my lack of knowledge pertaining to centrifuges but I need to know, if I was to take a 2’ threaded rod about 16 inches long and insert it into a container that was about 1/3 full of water and spun the rod at a high rate of speed, would the water heat up as it spun and the water hit the side of the container? If so, how fast would the water heat? If not, what could I add to the water to make it heat up? Thank you in advance for your time.
