Floor Scales and Accuracy

GL Technology understans how important it is to maintain accuracy and precise measurements in biopharmaceutical research and testing. An inaccurate measurement can result in products that don't meet regulatory requirements and fail industry standards. We work hard to provide our clients with equipment calibration and certification services to avoid costly product recalls, legal issues, and potental damage to their brand.

Our floor scale calibration process involves comparing the readings of a scale to a known standard and making adjustments as needed until the scale is accurate. Downtime can be damaging to a company in the biopharmaceutical industry which is why we work quickly and efficiently to minimize the impact of calibration on your product schedule. GL Tec offers flexible scheduling for your calibtation needs.

Floor Scale Calibration Benefits

Accurate Measurements

Floor scale equipment calibrations make sure that your measurements are accurate and reliable, ultimately providing the trust that the quality and safety of the products being manufactured. Even a small error in measurement can lead to significant deviations in the final product.

Compliance with Industry Standards

As you are well aware, the biopharmaceutical industry is highly regulated, and maintaining compliance with these regulations is vital for maintaining quality and safety standards. Calibration of your floor scales is an important step in remaining fully compliant.

Cost Savings

When your floor scales and other equipment is calibrated and maintained regularly, this will address any potential issues before the problem grows. In turn it will prevent downtime, reduce the risk of recalls, and save money from expensive repairs.

The Experts at GL Technologies

GL Technologies is committed to providing the highest quality calibrations in the biopharmaceutical industry. Our team works hard for our clients to make sure the calibration services we provide exceeds industry standards and maintains regulatory requirements. With a commitment to quality, key stakeholders will have peace of mind that the floor scales and other research equipment is measuring the products and materials accurately.

The Calibration Process

The calibration process for floor scales is a procedure that involves the following steps:

Selection of Calibration Standards

The selection of calibration standards needs to be traceable to national and international standards and serve as reference points for the accuracy of the scale’s measurements. The choice depends on the application and industry requirements, as different industries may have unique standards. Factors need to include the scale’s capacity, accuracy requirements, and environmental conditions. Careful consideration in the selection process is important to guarantee the floor scale’s performance.

Preparatory Checks

Preparatory checks are important to guarantee the precision of the scale in a highly regulated industry. To start, the scale’s environment is evaluated for temperature and humidity stability, as any fluctuations in these conditions can impact measurements. Following this, the scale’s surface is inspected for levelness which is needed for accurate weighing. The calibration technician will then verify that the scale is not in use during the calibration process to prevent any disruptions; the preparatory checks are required to maintain the quality and consistency of biopharma operations that rely on precise measurements.

Calibration Procedure

The calibration process starts with the calibration weights that fall within the scale’s specified range. The scale is then place on a level surface and any factors that can affect the calibration such as vibrations are removed. The scale is then cleaned and inspected for any signs of damage that could impact its performance. A certified technician will perform a series of measurements, comparing the scale’s readings to the known weights, and adjustments are made as necessary to bring the scale back in to compliance with industry standards.


During the calibration process, adjustments are made to the scale to account for factors that can potentially affect its precision such as load variations and temperature fluctuations. Precise calibration is requiring as even small inaccuracies in weight instruments can have a large impact on dosage accuracy and product efficacy. By fine-tuning the scales, pharmaceutical organizations can uphold strict quality control standards and maintain requirements.


Documentation requires detailed records of calibration dates, personnel or company involved, and any adjustments made during the calibration process. These records not only serve as compliance requirements for regulatory agencies but also protect the integrity of pharmaceutical manufacturing by guaranteeing the accuracy of weight measurements for quality control.
