Maintenance and calibration of laboratory equipment is important to ensure dependability of results, and longtime reliability.    Equipment that is not working correctly will have a negative impact on the results of your tests.  

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.
