What Is Lab Equipment Calibration?
Equipment calibration for a laboratory is the practice of adjusting measuring tools to ensure that they meet an accepted standard. Once calibrated, your equipment should provide consistent, accurate, repeatable results that will adhere to review and audit requirements, thus safeguarding the integrity of your facility’s work.
Calibration is carried out by comparing a tool’s measurements against a benchmark measurement and adjusting the apparatus as necessary. This type of assessment is crucial for any piece of equipment that measures, including dimensional measurements, scales, thermometers, spectrophotometers and more.
How Often Should Lab Equipment Be Calibrated?
Calibration requirements vary by type of equipment, application and usage, among other factors. In general, OEM documentation can provide a baseline recommendation for calibration, which may be anywhere from yearly to monthly. In addition, be sure to calibrate lab tools prior to any critical processes, any time data is in question and after any abnormal incident with an apparatus (such as accidents or mishandling).
What Equipment Should Be Calibrated?
All equipment that performs a measuring function should be calibrated in order to remain accurate, extend equipment life, improve safety, and maintain compliance and certification. Tools that should be calibrated include:
- Cold storage units
- Torque wrenches
- Clamp meters
- Insulation testers
- Electrical data loggers
- Test gauges
- Thermal cameras
- And more …
