Scientific Calibration offers a full portfolio of pipette services, including calibration and repair. We are ISO 17025 accredited, and calibrations come with a certificate of calibration and repair that meets or exceeds GLP, GMP, ISO 9000, and CAP requirements. We are one of the few calibration companies with an accreditation to perform services at clients’ locations, and all services are performed by professionally certified technicians using NIST traceable equipment.

Our Process

  • Each pipette is thoroughly cleaned including pistons.
  • O-rings and seals are replaced and lubricated as needed based upon manufacturer specifications.
  • A detailed inspection is completed to check for worn, missing or broken parts.
  • Each pipette is reassembled and calibrated per customer requirements.
  • Standard volumetric calibration takes 5 readings at maximum volume and 5 readings at 20% of maximum volume.
  • A calibration sticker noting date of service and service expiration is attached to each pipette.
  • Multi-channel pipettes are serviced by taking a volumetric reading from each nose cone.

We strive to achieve a 24-48 hour turnaround, and all service includes a 6 month warranty.


A 30 pipette minimum is required for clients located WITHIN a 45 mile radius of RTP, North Carolina. Calibrations outside of this radius will be subject to travel expenses depending upon client location and the number of instruments serviced.


Scientific Calibration also offers a mail-in program, which eliminates the need for travel expenses. There is no minimum requirement of pipettes, and allows rolling service for labs. Our technicians are able to complete calibrations within 24-48 hours of receiving pipettes. Our mail-in program is particularly helpful for clients located outside the US.
