In times of scarcity of resources (inputs, labor, etc.), having the help of the instruments with the greatest possible reliability is essential for the productivity of the analyzes.
Maintaining the calibration frequency of the measuring instruments contributes to the quality of services, to the reduction of costs and the reliability of measurements.
Due to the routines adjusted as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is essential that the resources available in the laboratory contribute to the release of accurate results.
The Calibration Laboratory of Controllab has been accredited since 2002 by Cgcre/Inmetro, under number CAL 0214. It is evaluated periodically for the maintenance and/or extension of accreditation and its technical competence is attested to several quantities (physical-chemical, mass, volume, pressure and temperature).
Due to the relevance of its activities, the laboratory is functioning and adopting actions to combat the dissemination of Covid-19 in order to continue meeting the needs of analysis.
For laboratories that carry out Covid-19 tests through PCR analysis in manual or semi-automated routines, the intense use of pipettes on a daily basis and their wear can offer indications that the calibration frequency of this instrument should be well evaluated.
The Controllab Calibration Laboratory calibrates micropipettes – fixed and variable, uni and multichannel. The accredited ranges and measurement capacity can be consulted in the scope available at this link, in the services portal of Inmetro.
