Vaisala Expands Accredited Calibration to Carbon Dioxide Instruments

Vaisala, the world leader in measurement technology, is expanding the service offering to ISO/IEC 17025 accredited carbon dioxide calibrations. In the initial phase the accredited calibration services will be offered to the Vaisala CARBOCAP® Carbon Dioxide GMP250 Series. Later during 2018, the service will be available also for the Vaisala GMP220 Series.

New accredited calibration service is answering to quality system requirements of the demanding safety and manufacturing processes, especially in pharmaceutical and food industry. Accurate carbon dioxide measurement helps maintain correct pH-levels in cell cultivation and optimal indoor or process air. Incorrect readings may lead to costly and incorrect decisions or even life danger in the most critical applications.

 "The instrument calibration is important for any business utilizing the measurement data in decision-making. Even the best high-performance measurement instruments require regular calibration to ensure they continue providing the most accurate data possible. The accredited calibration is very important especially to organizations working in the life science of Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) regulated industries", says Juha Ryödi, Head of Vaisala's Life Cycle Services. "With the service expansion, organizations working in these strictly regulated industries or medical laboratories utilizing the ISO 15189 requirements for quality and competence have now the optimal calibration solution for their high quality Vaisala instruments. The usage of the manufacturer's ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration service will ensure the critical requirements for continuous accuracy set by the regulations." 

Vaisala's accredited CO2 calibration service covers all the requirements set by the regulatory bodies, helping to ensure compliance and process quality. Finnish Accreditation Service (FINAS), a member of International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), audits Vaisala calibration services regularly by assessing the quality and management systems and the technical capabilities to perform the service, like measurement traceability to the international SI-units. 

The accredited calibration provides a certificate with as-found and as-left results, which when needed includes a calibration curve adjustment to deliver the best accuracy. The Vaisala accredited calibration service comes standard with three calibration points to ensure the full functionality of the instrument over the sensor's stated measurement range. Additionally, up to six customer specified calibration points can be added to cover operationally critical conditions.
