Calibration Team

Calibration of measuring instrument checks the accuracy of the instrument and it determines the traceability of the measurement. In practice, calibration also includes repair of the device if it is out of  calibration. Calibration defines the accuracy and quality of measurements recorded using a piece of equipment. Over time there is a tendency for results and accuracy to ‘drift’. To be confident in the results being measured there is an ongoing need to maintain the calibration of equipment throughout its lifetime for reliable, accurate and repeatable measurements.


The goal of calibration

The goal of calibration is to minimize any measurement uncertainty by ensuring the accuracy of test equipment. Calibration quantifies and controls errors or uncertainties within measurement processes to an acceptable level.


Main objectives

  • To ensure readings from an instrument are consistent with other measurements.
  • To determine the accuracy of the instrument readings.
  • To establish the reliability of the instrument i.e. that it can be trusted



  • Calibration of all temperature gauges once in a year
  • Biannual Internal calibration of equipment including pH meters, balances, autoclaves and micropipettes
  • Inter/Intra Training of Calibration Team
