The United States Center for Disease Control, or the CDC, has developed guidelines to classify laboratory applications conducted with potentially hazardous biological microorganisms. These range from Biosafety Level I to Biosafety Level 4.  Level 1 being the least hazardous and Level 4 being the most hazardous.

Temperature sensors need to be checked for accuracy on a regular basis.  Equipment calibration should be done at least once a year for these devices, and the date and time should be documented and stored with the instruments.  If, for some reason, there is no record or if it has been more than one (1) year since the last check, you must check the sensor’s accuracy before using it. 

Regular pipette preventive maintenance and calibration service can significantly reduce the costs, risks and liabilities associated with out-of-calibration pipettes.  Pipettes deliver precise volumes and accurate results when calibrated twice a year by a professional instrument calibration service provider, but they tend to wear out with frequent volume changes in everyday use and this can adversely impact test results.

Medical Equipment needs to be durable and precise to ensure accurate results and flawless functioning.  Therefore, timely maintenance and repairs for your lab equipment is necessary if you want it to function smoothly.   Medical lab devices are subject to wear and tear because of frequent use.  The longevity of laboratory equipment relies on proper care and ongoing maintenance.
