The areas that BTS services are:

Benefits of Regularly Calibrated Lab Equipment

It is highly important that your lab equipment be calibrated on a regular basis. This ensures that it maintains its accuracy and provides the correct output when taking readings in a laboratory or controlled space. If your equipment is needed to service the general public or for experiments that require accuracy, an uncalibrated piece of equipment could cause major problems.

Biotechnical Services ensures that the calibration of your laboratory equipment San Francisco is correctly and efficiently performed. If you are unsure as to whether your equipment needs to be calibrated or if it is starting to underperform, our dedicated teams will guide you in the right direction and determine your needs. 

Other benefits of lab calibration services in San Francisco are:

Improved Safety

If not calibrated correctly, equipment can break or be damaged, which will ultimately affect the safety of the lab technicians or anyone working with the equipment itself. BTS has a thorough equipment calibration process, so that equipment is properly checked and calibrated. This ensures that any large or small scale experiments are safe and risk-free in terms of any equipment potentially breaking. 

Cheaper Costs

Poorly calibrated equipment can ultimately waste time, energy and costs in the long run, due to the mechanical and operational issues they will cause time and time again. By calibrating your lab equipment regularly and correctly, it prevents you from having to buy brand new equipment. This, in turn, allows you to save on additional production costs that would have been incurred and increase your ROI. 

Data Integrity

Calibrated equipment can even promote data integrity. If equipment and sensors aren’t correctly calibrated, they might record inaccurate results which will then lead to defected products or backlogs. In some cases, the lack of timely calibration will also lead to an audit failure and could mean the business loses its accreditation or faces fines. It is important to maintain high standards when it comes to this aspect by following the correct accreditations and regulation set out by American Global Standards, LLC (AGS) and the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA).

Types of Calibration Services

Equipment calibration can be divided into the following subsections: Mechanical, Electrical, Temperature and Pressure. Equipment such as torque tools, weights, balances and cales will require mechanical calibration. Counter timers and data loggers require electrical calibration. Dial thermometers and chambers will need temperature calibration and barometers and gauges will require pressure calibration.

Biotechnical Services carries out calibrations in all of the above categories.

Scale Calibration

A scale calibration process requires you to place a weight on the scale and determine whether the scale measures an accurate reading. For scales used in processing and manufacturing businesses, incorrect measurements will cause issues in product quality, batches to be scrapped and in some cases products to be recalled. Calibration is essential ensure that your scale measures accurately.
