SAN DIEGO, September 19, 2019 (Newswire.com) - With a history of excellence and over 20 years of experience in pipette calibration, Pipette.com is the largest independent calibration facility on the West Coast. With a passion for empowering scientific discovery, they are dedicated to providing the best solutions possible for their customers while maintaining effective communication.
Pipette.com is a laboratories GMP & GLP compliance expert. Pipettes are one of the most ubiquitous and commonly used research tools. Having a pipette operating at its optimal performance is important to obtain accurate and reproducible results. Pipette.com is an ISO 17025 Accredited Calibration Facility that calibrates and repairs all pipette brands and models. All pipettes are calibrated in Pipette.com’s environmentally controlled facility.
Pipette.com uses a metrology-based measurement for Pipette Calibration. Metrology is defined as a science of measurement. Metrology-based pipette calibration provides a platform where the process is done within the strict guidelines of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). This ensures that there is a methodology and a standard set for all of the equipment used to calibrate the pipettes. If this standard is not followed, there cannot be a statistical guarantee that one's lab results are accurate to true standards. Science is based on reproducible results. When reproducible results cannot be achieved, all work is voided.
Thus, scientists must strive that all of their work is reproducible. In order to achieve reproducibility, scientists must have accurate and precise equipment. Pipettes are the cornerstone of all research, thus they must always be precise and accurate. In order to achieve this, scientists must choose pipette service providers that follow strict metrology guidelines. Providers whose equipment is also calibrated and follows strict NIST rules can provide accurate and precise results, giving a lab informative data on the status of their work and their pipette. Without metrology-based calibration, one cannot statistically say if the pipette is truly within range; it is simply an assumption, using an uncertified piece of equipment.
In addition to pipette calibration, Pipette.com offers Preventative Maintenance on pipettes and multichannel pipettes. Preventative Maintenance (PM) is a step in the calibration process that greatly enhances the longevity of one's instrument. PM includes full disassembly, interior and exterior cleaning, piston polishing and re-greasing, and new seals/o-rings are replaced as needed. An in-depth PM process helps keep a lab's pipettes operating at peak performance in between their regularly scheduled calibration service dates.
