Both burette and pipette are analytical instruments. However, a key difference between burette and pipette lies in its applications and the accuracy of measurement.
The burette is commonly used in the titration process for quantitative analysis in many industrial chemical tests where solutions of known concentration are used to find the concentration of unknown solutions. Where pipettes are used to accurately and precisely transfer volumes of liquid in the microliter range.
Another difference between Burette and Pipette is that the Burettes are larger than pipettes with higher capacity of liquid to dispense. That’s why the accuracy of a burette in releasing small volumes is lesser than a pipette.
