We were getting ready to send our pipettes out for calibration again and found out the company doesn't do them in house anymore and couldn't get us a quote.  What companies do you use for pipette calibration?  I'm on the west coast, so would prefer something close.

Thanks!

I am on the East Coast and we had a local company that would come in at my last job. It was Bio Calibration Company out of New Jersey.  My current facility we calibrate them ourselves.  It is usually a slow weekend job because it takes a long time.  I would prefer to send them out. :)

I question what we do at our facility.  We send out pipettes for calibration and then have to recheck them once they come back.  We don't use as many points to check as they do to calibrate.  The recheck doesn't seem necessary.

If you get a certificate of calibration there is no need to confirm.

      I am in the market for new pipettes to use with my MTS-gel system. I currently have 2 old Tipmaster pipettes that Ortho sold us with the gel system.
      I have seen a brochure on the Ovation Vista adjustable pipette. It looks pretty cool and is ergonomically correct, which would be great for one of my techs who has a little bit of arthritis.
      Is anyone using this? If so, how do you like it?
      I am also considering the Biohit, but I have seen some bad reviews of this one (breaks down too soon) and it's more expensive than the Ovation and the Tipmaster.
      Thanks,
      Amelia

      Have you found a good alternative pipette for the Ortho Gel system other than the Ortho approved Biohit pipette?
       
      If so, what make, model, and programming do you use.
