A process of sterilisation of medical devices is being described in note form. The full text is:
"Extraction aqueuse pendant 4 heures a temperature ambiante par simulation d'utilisation puis dosage de 2ml dans un flacon head space, celui-ci etant chauffe a 80 o C pendant 1 heure avant prelevement et injection d'un aliquote."
I know the dictionary says "aliquot" for "aliquote", but I thought that applied to mathematics. What does "aliquote" mean here?
