Choosing the right service provider to maintain and calibrate your medical equipment is not always a straightforward decision. 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 get only 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.
There are a few companies which do provide a first rate service, but there are many that do not.
A first class service will only ever use quality instrumentation which has been calibrated annually by a UKAS laboratory. As you would expect this level of attention to accuracy is not cheap but is essential in complying with national and international standards.
