Calibration certificate: Accreditation
Many countries around the world have one or more organizations responsible for the accreditation of their nation’s 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 pipettes 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 (3 volumes x 10 measurements) without changing tip.
The special Gilson method (3 volumes x 4 measurements). This method has been validated by the COFRAC organization.
