Laboratory Equipment Standards

Laboratory Equipment Standards cover the procedures, applicability, settings, data analysis, and other considerations revolving around laboratory equipment. Meta analysis such as comparing different equipment and procedures, quality management is also included. A focus on biological testing covers a range of medical testing and research.

Pipet Standards

Pipet Standards address multiple kinds of pipets from the perspective of both construction and use. ASTM has published standard specifications for color-coding of pipets, disposable versus reusable pipets, pipets designed for specific techniques, and other types of glass pipets.

Cleanroom and Controlled Environment Standards

Cleanroom and Controlled Environment Standards are in use in many types of laboraties. With IEST, the Institute of Environmental Sciences and Technology, paying particular emphasis to vital role cleanrooms play in electronics production and testing, published standards are useful for a wide range of applications and industries.

Biological Matter Laboratory Equipment Standards

Biological Matter Laboratory Equipment Standards cover a range of biological matter and the approved guidelines for the equipment and procedures used to obtain, analyze, and store it. Used heavily in the medical field, these standards play an important role in producing reliable data that can be compared against related data gathered at different points in time or by different people.

Quality Assurance and Management Standards

Quality Assurance and Management standards play a vital role in looking at the larger picture, beyond any single individual lab test. Addressing development, risk management, leadership and management roles, error management, and more, these standards are key to the long-term functioning and reliablity of a laboratory.

Meta Analysis Standards

Meta Analysis Standards compare results against other results, finding precision and accuracy, and identifying potential errors in reproducibility. Especially useful when laboratories refer to results put forth by another laboratory or results from the past, meta analysis stanards directly address the issue of reliability and provide tools towards this end.


As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) empowers its members and constituents to strengthen the U.S. marketplace position in the global economy while helping to assure the safety and health of consumers and the protection of the environment.
