What Is ISO 8655?
The only definitive ISO procedure guide specifically for pipette calibration, ISO 8655 is a very detailed set of standards, methods and controls that a pipette calibration provider must follow to correctly and accurately calibrate any type of piston pipette.
ISO 8655-2 specifies the requirements for air-displacement (type A) and positive-displacement (type D) single-channel and multi-channel piston pipettes (including their selected tip(s) and any other essential, consumable parts, designed to deliver their specified nominal volume).
TTE Laboratories is committed to providing pipette calibration services that are comprehensive and complete, reliable and fully compliant to these ISO 8655 requirements.
Why Are ISO Calibration Services Important?
Instrument calibration to ISO 8655 standards is a key requirement of passing an audit, managing risk and attracting new clients. Compared to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 — another common laboratory certification — ISO 8655 includes more rigorous and detailed standards specifically for pipette calibration. This provides additional peace of mind in any laboratory or related facility where accuracy is essential.
Five Calibration Service Levels
At TTE Laboratories, we recognize that not all clients require the highest level, most accurate and detailed calibration, and many of our clients have their own individual compliance requirements. To better meet these needs, TTE Laboratories offers five different levels of pipette calibration service, and 3 additional service options for multichannel pipettes.
These range from our ISO-level calibration service providing the details necessary for the most stringent regulatory compliance to our Level 1 service which provides a basic but thorough service suitable for any research laboratory.
Our Tip Evaluation Service
A pipette is useless without an appropriate tip. Although they are cheap and intended to be disposable, they greatly impact the accuracy of your pipettes. That’s why TTE Laboratories takes care to evaluate the accuracy of each of your pipettes when fitted with the tips your staff normally would use with it.
