Laboratory Equipment Calibration Services

Equipment needs to be properly calibrated to check the graduation of equipment and instruments that provide a quantitative measurement. If you perform instrument calibration as part of the organization's general routines, it will help maintain the equipment to provide accuracy and produce the required results within the specified value while reducing the potential for errors. This will in turn reduce manufacturing costs. GL Technologies specializes in equipment calibration to help laboratories provide documented verification that the instrument complies with user requirements and desin specifications. Ultimately supporting the reliablity of the instrument.

What is Calibration?

Calibration is the process of comparing the measurements of an instrument or device to a known and traceable standard for accuracy. In the context of laboratory equipment, calibration involves adjusting and verifying the performance of devices to meet established standards. This process is important  because instruments tend to drift over time, impacting the reliability of experimental results. By calibrating equipment regularly, laboratories can validate the integrity of their work.

How Often Should Lab Equipment Be Calibrated?

As you are most likely aware, calibration requirements can vary by type of equipment, application and usage, amongst a wide variety of factors. Proper OEM documentation can provide a baseline recommendation for instrument calibration, which may be anywhere from monthly to yearly services. Make sure to calibrate any tools PRIOR to any critical processes and any time data is in question. You will also be in need of proper calibration any time the data is in question after an abnormal incident such as mishandling or an accident.

What Equipment Should Be Calibrated?

In essence, ALL equipment that performs a measuring function will be in need of calibration services to remain accurate along with extending equipment life. More importantly proper calibration provides safety and helps the organization maintain compliance and certification.

Cold storage units
Torque wrenches
Clamp meters
Insulation testers
Electrical data loggers
Test gauges
Thermal cameras
And more …

Importance of Calibration in Laboratories

Accuracy and Precision

Accurate measurements are vital for drawing meaningful conclusions and making informed decision in the biopharma and pharmaceutical fields. The calibration process not only guarantees the accuracy of data but also improves the precision of measurements, reducing the likelihood of errors and improving the repeatability of experiments. Inaccurate measurements can lead to flawed research, misinterpretation of results, and even safety hazards in some cases.

Compliance with Standards

Calibration is a practice for laboratories to conform to established standards, such as ISO 17025, which demands precision and consistency in testing and analytical processes. Properly calibrated instruments provide trustworthy data, reducing the risk of errors, verifying the validity of experimental results, and allowing laboratories to meet regulatory requirements. Equipment calibration is the pin that upholds the credibility and effectiveness of of laboratories, contributing to advances in research.

Quality Assurance

Calibration not only improves the credibility of scientific findings but also contributes to compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards. In laboratories, where even the slightest deviations can lead to significant consequences, calibration serves as a tool in maintaining the trustworthiness and reliability of data, underpinning the foundation of quality assurance.

Cost Savings

Precisely calibrated instruments and equipment work to minimize errors, reducing the need for repeated experiments, and avoiding costly rework. Accurate measurements make sure that resources, such as chemicals and samples, are used efficiently, reducing waste and associated expenses. Along with this, calibration is essential for maintaining compliance with industry standards and regulations, protecting companies against costly fines and legal repercussions.
