Medical Instrument Calibration

PCS has the knowledge, tools and experience to offer complete, comprehensive service to any lab or facility in the medical, research, or food & drug industry. Our professional technicians are trained to calibrate the following instruments per ISO 17025, ISO 8655 and CLIA regulations.

Thermometer Calibration

PCS recently purchased two state of the art Ametek “Jofra” dry block calibrators which allow us to perform thermometer and thermometer system calibrations ranging from -90° C to 660°C  with superb accuracy and speed which translates into lower costs and faster turnarounds for our customers. We also have a series of oil bath calibrators and electronic sourcing equipment which enables us to provide complete and comprehensive thermometer and temperature device calibration.

Autoclave Calibration

PCS uses the latest technology in temperature data logging equipment and software for complete autoclave cycle calibration. Our equipment is amazingly accurate within (+/-0.1°C) and is able to produce results within seconds after the autoclave cycle completes.  You will be able to view your machines performance before we leave the premises so that you will have no delay in knowing if your target specifications are being met. A complete long form NIST traceable certificate is included with every calibration.

Laboratory Oven / Freezer Calibration

Lab ovens and freezers are calibrated with a variety of test equipment to produce the best results possible for your application and specific temperature range.  We use typically use data loggers, Platinum Resistance thermometer’s and digital thermocouple temperature measuring systems (depending on the temperature range of your application) to provide you with the most accurate calibration possible.

Pipette Calibration

PCS is equipped to calibrate fixed, selectable or adjustable pipettes ranging from (10uL to 10,000uL) in our lab or at your facility using a volumetric Pipette Accuracy Tester. Our Pipette calibration procedure, equipment and certificates are all ISO 8655 compliant which is hugely important in today’s heavily regulated medical research, and Food & Drug industries.

Balance / Scale Calibration

PCS calibrates all analytical balances and scales ranging from 1mg to 10kg with ASTM Class 1 weights. Our thorough procedure includes cleaning, re-leveling, “before” and “after” readings, pre-load linearity, corner load linearity and repeatability. It is recommended that all balances and scales be calibrated in-house. Many factors contribute to the loss of accuracy during shipment and set-up in a location other than where it was originally calibrated so it is important to have all balances and scales calibrated after delivery. In addition to first time set-up calibration, ongoing regularly scheduled calibration performed by a trained technician is the only way to ensure accuracy.

Microscope Service / Calibration

PCS offers a comprehensive microscope service program to help you meet your laboratory quality goals including Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) regulations. It is also important to note that all microscope manufacturers strongly recommend implementing a preventative maintenance service plan to ensure the instrument performs properly throughout the life of the instrument. Experienced, factory-trained technicians are available to perform cleaning, lens inspection, alignment and general service of the following types of microscopes regardless of the manufacturer.

Moisture Analyzer Calibration

PCS is an authority on Moisture analyzer calibration and can provide services for most major manufacturers including Mettler-Toledo and Ohaus.  With our highly trained staff and state of the art calibration equipment, we can provide top level calibration services onsite at you facility or in our lab with a standard 48 hour turnaround.

pH Meter Calibration

pH Meters are calibrated using a combination of pH solution standards at 4, 7 and 10pH and our Hanna pH simulation meter. Using this method, PCS can insure that both the pH meter and probe are accurate and are working as properly as a system.  All pH meter calibrations are calibrated to NIST traceable standards.

Viscometer Calibration

PCS offers precision NIST traceable viscometer calibration and using special-order silicone standards supplied by the OEM. As a result of increasingly stringent regulations placed on Quality Control, Research & Development and other industries, companies are challenged to find quality calibration services to comply with numerous audits and inspections.  PCS is an ISO 17025 accredited calibration laboratory that will help you achieve your quality control goals and meet the demands of regulatory audits with confidence.

Accreditation and Documentation

All calibrations are traceable to the SI through NIST, (National Institute of Standard and Technology) and include “long form” calibration certificates with as-found/as-left data.  ISO/IEC-17025 accredited calibration is available upon request. We also offer a web based calibration interface, “e-certificates” that gives you access to electronic copies of your calibration certificates which can be viewed and printed at your convenience. Standard turnaround time is 48 hours.
