PMC Calibration Lab is ISO 17025 and ISO 8655-2 Accredited
PMC Calibration recently expanded their ISO 17025 calibration lab offerings to include accredited pipette calibration services. Regular calibration of medical equipment is vital to ensure that the instruments are accurately measuring the correct volumes of liquid to produce quality results in the lab. PMC offers ISO 8655-2 accreditation calibration for pipettes – a specific calibration standard written to address accuracy and reliability of piston pipette calibrations.
Importance of Pipette Calibration
Overtime, pipettes can wear with the frequency of volume changes when continuously used in the lab. The natural wear and tare that can occur with normal or extensive usage can produce inaccurate measurement and test results. Pipettes typically wear after each year, even with normal usage, which is why calibration of pipettes is vital within your lab.
There are many factors that can impact the accuracy and longevity of pipettes including the technique, cleanliness, temperature, proper pipette tip and calibration. Practicing preventative maintenance increases accuracy and reduces costs.

Recommended Frequency of Pipette Calibration
The frequency of pipette calibration largely depends on the environment they are being used in. While some companies may require calibration on a yearly basis, others may require pipette calibration on a quarterly basis. Regularly calibrating your equipment ensures your lab is operating at peak accuracy and efficiency.
