Calibration

Calibration, put in simple terms, is comparing the value of a parameter on a unit under test (UUT) to  a reference standard and known value. This, though arguably not precisely part of the calibration process, can be followed by an adjustment to the instrument to restore accuracy consistent with the calibrating instrument.  This is done mainly to determine the accuracy of the unit under test and to ensure that it actually works as intended.

Our customers can choose to have their calibrations done periodically , (say, once every 3 months, 6 months or on a yearly basis), or a calibration can be booked  as and when the customer needs it. In general, it is better to perform periodic calibrations so that the calibration history is more traceable.

Purpose of a Calibration

  • Most of our customers do calibration to ensure that the equipment they use is working accurately and produces the intended results. In actual fact, calibration becomes one of the most important aspects of a Preventive Maintenance.

  • Calibration is also done by most companies to ensure that they comply to standards e.g UKAS, FDA or GMP.

At BSM Technics, we carry out calibrations on a variety of equipment and the following are examples;

  • Fridges/Freezers

  • Incubators

  • Ovens

  • Centrifuges

  • pH Meters

  • Thermal Cyclers /PCRs

  • Stability Cabinets

  • Temperature Probes

  • Temperature Monitoring Systems.

What is included with calibration

After a the calibration of each unit the following are issued;

  • Calibration Certificate

  • Technical advise/Recommendations if needed.

  • A calibration Sticker affixed to the unit.
