Calibration is the comparison of a measured value with a known, i.e. correct, value. For example, during calibration of laboratory balances, the indications shown on the display are compared with known test weights. The documented values, as well as the values calculated (e.g., deviation, uncertainty of measurement), represent the calibration result.

Please contact your nearest service center for detailed instructions by completing the contact form to order calibration or other services. Decontaminate and carefully pack your pipettes and schedule courier pickup service, if available for your selected region.

A measuring instrument is considered to deliver traceable results if they are referenced to a national or an international standard through an unbroken chain of comparisons, all having stated uncertainties. Therefore, verification of traceability ensures international comparability and, thus, the reliability of measurement results.

Important information: In many countries, only accredited calibration certificates or certificates issued by national metrology institutes are accepted as evidence of metrological traceability. No other calibration certificates (e.g., ISO calibration certificates or verification certificates) are valid as forms of evidence. For further information, visit International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation.

A laboratory accredited for compliance with ISO 17025 has demonstrated the quality of its calibration data to an independent accreditation body, such as UKAS in the U.K., ANAB in the USA or DAkkS in Germany. Calibration certificates issued by accredited laboratories offer the highest possible degree of reliability and are recognized worldwide.

Calibration of laboratory balances must be performed directly at the place of their use. For your pipette, calibration is offered at one of our advanced calibration laboratories or on site in your lab. On-site calibration guarantees the fastest possible turnaround, which is especially advantageous if you use your pipettes daily.

The uncertainty of measurement provides reliable information about the quality of a measurement result. It indicates the range of values in which the true measured value lies. The lower the uncertainty of measurement, the narrower the range within which the true value lies. Accredited calibration certificates issued by Sartorius state the uncertainty of measurement in an easy-to understand way and provide confidence in interpreting your measured values.
