TTE Laboratories is so much more than a Pipette Calibration Company
When it comes to choosing a pipette calibration and repair service provider, TTE Laboratories offers a clear alternative. With its GMP Select™ products and services, TTE brings an integrated approach to laboratory liquid handling that consistently delivers the most accurate results for the lowest lifetime cost.
We Calibrate. Unlike other providers, TTE Laboratories’ calibration service meets both the well known ISO 17025 standard and the far-more-important-for-pipettes ISO 8655 standard. And we back that up with a full 12 month guarantee on parts and workmanship: the industry’s longest.
We Consult. We are not a manufacturer, so we can support all premium pipettes. Our seasoned technicians can recommend the best pipettes for your application. Our calibration customers receive a 10% discount on every product on Pipettes.com, every day. For example, our favorite products include the smallest 96 well pipettor on the market, or a premium pipette with a lifetime warranty.
We Train. Pipettes in the hands of users creates variation. 70% of pipette errors are due to the user. Our training options, available nationwide, will pay for themselves. Use our Error Calculator to learn how much error could be in your lab right now, and how much its costing you. After 29 years of seeing pipettes from every lab imaginable, we’ve seen a thing or two we’d love to share with you!
Founded on Science and Scientific Principles–Our Story
TTE was founded, and is still owned and operated, by former molecular research and clinical testing scientists who were unhappy with the calibration services available to them at the time. They intuitively understand not only the need for repeatability in the lab, but also the simple fact that only scientifically–proven and supported calibration methodologies, as defined in ISO 8655, can ensure accurate pipette performance. That’s why we deliver pipette calibration services that are 100% compliant, reliable and—now organized into our breakthrough solutions—totally convenient and fully guaranteed.
Our goal was, is, and will always remain to provide an independent, standards-based pipette calibration service, with validated accuracy, repeatability, and reliability, so that every pipette’s measurement accuracy is maximized and never jeopardized.

Unparalleled Pipette Calibration Accuracy and Convenience
We don’t rest on our accuracy, repeatability, and reliability laurels. We also make our services extremely convenient.
That’s why our signature 24-hour turnaround (from the time we receive your pipettes at our calibration lab) guarantees that every pipette not only receives the highest quality service available anywhere, but also leaves our facility in less than a day.
Benefit From Our Unmatched Expertise and Experience
With over 50 years of combined laboratory experience, TTE’s management and its highly trained measurement specialists all recognize and agree on the importance of meeting or even exceeding established scientific standards in every aspect of calibrating, maintaining, repairing, and managing our customers’ pipettes. Learn more about our Expertise.
That’s why TTE’s scientist-owners have developed industry-leading procedures enabling us to provide a comprehensive preventative maintenance program. We painstakingly disassemble every pipette, perform a thorough cleaning inside and out, execute a comprehensive and detailed refurbishing, make all needed repairs, and relubricate all of the pipette’s moving parts. This extra attention to detail ensures the greatest possible reliability during the duty cycle of every pipette we calibrate, and is automatically included, free of charge, with every calibration we perform.
TTE staff’s lengthy experience working with pipettes in both biological and metrology laboratories is the basis for other valuable services we provide that others don’t. It’s one of the reasons we are able to make available a comprehensive pipette user training program to provide bench scientists with a validated technical process by which to standardize their pipetting techniques and improve their measurement performance. Our training is critically important to our customers, because user errors and even subtle variations increase lab costs, require expensive rework, create reagent and other material waste, and result in significant delays.
No Extra Charge for Extra Quality and Service
Although TTE offers the industry’s premium pipette calibration services, our pricing is highly competitive, and fully transparent. We can do this because TTE Laboratories continually focuses on finding additional ways to control costs and increase effectiveness, without sacrificing quality.
There are alternatives to TTE Laboratories. But working with substandard service programs can be risky: inadequate workmanship, incomplete procedures, and sloppy controls may be ways to keep calibration prices low. But in the long run our customers have found such shortcuts result in greater inaccuracies in their lab measurements and higher operating costs. Reagent waste, sample loss, cross-contamination, failing pipettes, and developmental delays are part of the risk scenarios you invite when you allow a non-compliant or even a less-compliant service to touch your pipettes.
All things considered, selecting TTE Laboratories for your pipette calibration and service helps maximize pipette performance and thereby improve your scientific development.
Our methodology is proven, controlled, standardized and reliable.
Aren’t these the values you want supporting your scientific process?
