Standard Setting Pipette Calibration Lab in Los Angeles

MQC employs the use of two gravimetric weighing comparators; namely, the Sartorius CC111 Mass Comparator Balance and the Sartorius WZA 225-CW Pipette Calibration Set. These precision mass comparators are used for the traditional gravimetric testing and certification to prove the reliability and accuracy of pipettes.

MQC’s current scope of accreditation sates the following CMCs for the gravimetric calibration and certification of pipettes:

Standard Calibration

  • < 10 µL ……………………………………………….. ± 0.06% of reading
  • 10.1 to 100 µL …………………………………...... ± 0.07% of reading
  • 100.1 to 1000 µL ……………………………....... ± 0.16% of reading
  • 1000.1 µL to 5 mL ………………………………. ± 0.18% of reading
  • 5.1 to 10 mL ………………………………............ ± 0.26% of reading
  • 10.1 to 50 mL ……………………………….......... ± 0.26% of reading

A2LA Accredited Calibration

  • < 10 µL ……………………………………………….. ±0.81% of reading
  • 10 µL to 100 µL …………………………………... ±0.096% of reading
