Pipette.com is an ISO 17025 Accredited Calibration Facility that calibrates and repairs all pipette brands and models.
Process of adjusting the output of a measurement instrument to agree with value of the applied standard. Pipettes are often out of calibration due to part failure but simply replacing the damaged parts is usually not enough to bring the pipette back within calibration specifications. Micrometer adjustments need to be made by a trained technician in a controlled environment.
Gravimetrical measurement method to collect data to provide a statistical basis for calibration compliance. There are different levels of certificates to meet various customer SOP’s and regulations.
the process of proactively replacing parts that are known to wear before they affect the performance of the pipette. Many pipettes that are out of tolerance fail because parts have worn out. Regularly scheduled PM is important to keep pipettes within specifications and prevent data errors.
Adjustments that are made because of part failure that are not considered PM parts. Repairs can often be costly and may exceed the purchase price of replacing a broken pipette.
Pipette.com is your 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.
At Pipette.com, exceeding your expectations is our number one job! We make pipette calibration service thorough, fast, cost effective and simple. You get ISO 17025:2005 accredited quality results with the best pipette management software available anywhere.
It is a process of examining and/or adjusting the pipettes to the true value by comparison to the standard which is set by the manufacturer of that said pipette. The standard in this case is the pipetting range set by the pipette manufacturer to be accurate and precise at low volume and high volume of the pipette. At Pipette.com, we perform metrology based pipette calibration; Metrology based pipette calibration provides a platform where the process is done within strict guidelines of 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
Metrology is defined as a science of measurement. Metrology based pipette calibration provides a platform where the process is done within strict guidelines of 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 your 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 you informative data on the status of your work and your 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

Preventative Maintenance (PM) is a step in the calibration process that greatly enhances the longevity of your instrument. PM includes full disassembly, interior & exterior cleaning, piston polishing & re-greasing, and new seals/o-rings are replaced as needed. An in-depth PM process helps keep your pipettes operating at peak performance in between your regularly scheduled calibration service dates.
No, we do not offer any onsite services due to limited control of environmental conditions (i.e. temperature, humidity, air flow, and direct sunlight) and use the proper equipment (ultra-micro balances situated on marble tables). The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA), published a policy in 2012 stating that higher measurement uncertainties are expected from onsite calibration. View that policy here: A2LA Policy P104
We recommend adding individual channel calibration for your multichannel pipette if you need each channel to be precise and accurate (such as when preforming RT-PCR, ELISA, ECL and Bioassays). This means each channel is individually adjusted, weighed, and calibrated. To add this to any pipette calibration service, check the box for “Multi-Channel Readings (per channel) on the “Pipette Service Order Form”
We provide free repair estimates once the broken pipette is in our calibration facility. We only charge you for pipette calibration and replacement parts
We offer complimentary 2 Business Day turn-around time to our customers, to request this option check the “48 HOUR SERVICE” on the Pipette Service Order Form. You can also request 1 business day calibration by marking the box “24 HOUR SERVICE” on the Pipette Service Order Form
All measurements are subject to uncertainty and a measured value is only complete if it is accompanied by the quantified statement of uncertainty. Measurement Uncertainty (MU) is a key factor in a gravimetric metrology based calibration and it will provide a lot of information on the quality of the company performing the calibration. Pipette.com provides MU data to support calibration measurements with appropriate levels of confidence.
