The pharmaceutical industry requires precise measuring instruments to ensure quality control and drive innovation. Improperly calibrated tools can lead to costly errors and other setbacks that jeopardize a business’ future in this profit-driven industry.

We provide mobile calibrations and inspections for microscopes and micrometers, thermometers and other instruments. We follow recognized industry best practices and are ISO/IEC 17025:2017 registered. All pharmaceutical calibrations, adjustments, and validations are NIST-traceable and performed to A2LA-approved standards.

Why Is Calibration Important?

In the pharmaceutical industry, periodic instrument calibration serves a number of different purposes. It may be required for compliance with FDA guidelines or for maintaining cGMP and other quality control standards. Pharmaceutical calibrations produce a verifiable paper trail that confirms when equipment was last serviced — important priorities when conducting an audit or investigation into a potential liability issue.

Most importantly, in the pharmaceutical industry, calibrations mean peace of mind. Regularly calibrated pharmaceutical equipment provides consistent results you can trust. This minimizes uncertainties during testing and product development, speeds up the pace of research by eliminating outlying results caused by faulty equipment and ultimately leads to more profitable and productive operations.
