Dilution results in various dilution steps or solution concentrations that differ, for example, in the concentration of the material quantities.
In the case of serial dilution (also known as continuous or geometrical dilution), the last dilution step is used as the starting solution for the subsequent dilution step. Therefore, it involves the repeated dilution of a solution with the purpose of geometrically diluting the original solution.
In this case, all steps of the dilution are carried out directly from the stock solution.
This procedure involves the arithmetic dilution of the starting solution.
