Accuracy and precision are of paramount importance in science and lab work and accuracy in your lab begins with having correctly calibrated pipettes. Different Eppendorf pipette calibration plans are available to meet the varied needs of different labs. It is important to know what level of Eppendorf pipette calibration your lab requires so that you can pick the correct plan to meet your needs. All labs and scientists require accuracy from their pipettes, but some require more stringent regulatory compliance standards than others.
Eppendorf has been making high-quality laboratory instruments and consumables for life science research and clinical testing for years. Today, Eppendorf pipettes are no exception. They continue to deliver accurate and precise results due to Eppendorf's dedication to thorough research, development and strict quality-controlled manufacturing. Eppendorf pipettes are known for their innovative features, durable design, and ultra-high and reliable performance. However, even the best pipettes require regular calibration. Pipette.com provides a number of different Eppendorf pipette calibration service levels, as well as offering pipette repair. The four ISO accredited pipette calibration plans offered by Pipette.com, with customized options available, are Verification, Calibration, Calibration Plus and Accredited Plus.
Pipette Calibration Plus is the second highest level of Eppendorf pipette calibration available at Pipette.com, and the most purchased option by Pipette.com customers across all brands of pipettes. It consists of 4 x 2 As Found weighings and 4 x 2 As Left weighings (Eppendorf pipette calibration factory method) with preventative maintenance. It includes all of the following: Data As Received, Preventative Maintenance, Eppendorf Pipette Calibration, Eppendorf Pipette Calibration Label, Complimentary Paper Report, Online Data Reports Retrieving and Pipette Management Tool and Automated Email Reminders for Your Next Calibration Service Date.
With this method of Eppendorf pipette calibration, pipettes undergo verification first, followed by preventative maintenance and calibration. With this plan you can demonstrate that your Eppendorf pipettes are within calibration range before they undergo preventative maintenance and calibration. This offers added confidence in results obtained using those Eppendorf pipettes up until calibration. Alternatively, if your pipettes are out of tolerance, you can adjust future calibration intervals to be closer together as needed. This level of service is ideal for labs in which you are required to verify your pipettes in the lab in between calibration cycles. Labs which are GLP, CLIA, manufacturing, or audited can all benefits from this. This may also be beneficial if you are obtaining odd results that could be attributed to incorrect volumes.
