As the demand for improved accuracy of your laboratory data steadily rises, it is imperative that measuring instruments consistently deliver precise, reliable and traceable results of the highest quality. This is ensured by calibrating your instruments at regular intervals.
Alpha Service draws on Sartorius' quality calibration expertise, that is internationally recognised, and our combined scope of knowledge expands beyond our own range of instruments. We directly provide all calibration needs, including other manufacturers’ brand equipment.
Alpha Service and Calibration can be carried out by a Sartorius Service Technician at your premises or you can opt to post your pipettes into the dedicated service and calibration laboratory.Request a Personalised Service Quote Now
The work you perform determines which service and calibration level is required for your environment.
There are two different service levels to choose from, these are available for both single and multichannel, electronic and mechanical pipettes, as well as dispensers.
Calibration levels are derived from a number of gravimetric weighings taken at different volumes. For variable volume pipettes it is recommended that weighings be taken at the nominal (maximum) volume, the mid-point (50% of nominal) and the minimum volume (10% of nominal). Weighings can also be taken at the maximum and minimum volumes only, or even at just the mid-point volume. For fixed volume pipettes, weighings can only be taken at the fixed volume.
