This specification covers the classification, physical requirements, and testing of disposable glass micro Folin pipets suitable for use in micro techniques for the estimation of blood sugar by the Folin method. The pipets shall be made of Type 1, Class B borosilicate glass, or Type 2 soda lime glass. The physical properties to which the pipets shall adhere are design, dimensions, graduation lines, pipet nomenclature, color coding, marking permanency, and lot control. The pipets shall also be tested for capacity accuracy and coefficient of variation, and marking permanency.
