What is a calibration?
A calibration is the process of configuring a device by comparing and adjusting it to within dependably known tolerances/standards. Traceability of our equipment to National Standards is available upon request.
When should you have your equipment calibrated & tested?
You have your medical equipment tested and calibrated when:
- A specific time period has elapsed. Usually annually but in some instances twice yearly.
- You purchase a second-hand instrument from a source other than a company that specialises in calibration and service.
- When a specific amount of usage (or hours used) has elapsed.
- When an instrument has had a shock, been dropped or suffered a vibration which could have knocked it out of calibration. This is especially important in portable devices.
- Whenever observations appear questionable. If it looks damaged or is displaying unexpected readings, there’s a good chance it could be inaccurate and would require a calibration.
Choosing the right service provider
A clue to the quality of service is given in the price you are being quoted. It may sound appealing if it is a good deal less than other quotes but as with everything, you only get what you pay for.
Be absolutely certain that you are being quoted ” like for like “, and that the equipment and technical backup is of the highest quality.
A calibration ” check ” is NOT a calibration.
