Quality Certificates

Certificate of conformity

Gilson SAS certifies that each pipette has been inspected and validated in accordance with the Gilson Quality Assurance System. Each pipette is identified with an engraved identification number for traceability and delivered with a certificate of conformity.

Calibration certificate: Accreditation

Many countries around the world have one or more organizations responsible for the accreditation of their national laboratories. Most of these accreditation bodies have now adopted an international guide, called ISO 17025.

The ISO 17025 contains “all the requirements that testing and calibration laboratories have to meet if they wish to demonstrate that they operate a quality system, are technically competent, and are able to generate technically valid results.” - ISO 17025-1999 -.

In France, the recognized accredited organization is called COFRAC, in the United Kingdom it is called UKAS and in the USA there are several accredited organizations called A2LA, NVLAP and ICBES.


Gilson Pipette Delivered with a Calibration Certificate

  • To respond to specific requests, especially for accredited laboratories, our calibration laboratory in France can deliver the pipettes with a calibration certificate, validated by the COFRAC organization.

We use either of the two following methods recognized by COFRAC:

  • The standardized ISO 8655-6 method (10 measurements) without changing tip.
  • The special Gilson method (4 measurements). This method has been validated by the COFRAC organization.

Decontamination & Autoclaving

Your pipette could be contaminated accidentally. The most frequently contaminated pipette parts are the tip-ejector and tip-holder.

For this reason, each and every Gilson PIPETMAN has autoclavable lower parts.


Tip-ejector, tip-holder and connecting nut can be sterilized in the laboratory under the following conditions: Moist heat/121°C/20 minutes/1 bar.



For maintenance and decontamination procedures, please refer to the related PIPETMAN user's guide.
