Product Certification Information
Purpose of the Program:
There is an increasing requirement by customers for documentation supporting manufacturers' claims of accuracy on their scientific equipment. This is partially due to the increasing acceptance of quality standards such as ISO 9000* and GMP**, which require that periodic certification of test equipment be performed and documented. We at Sper Scientific believe this trend is highly justified. To help, we have instituted this program of certification. Most testing is done in house with our own state-of-the-art equipment. Whenever possible and practical we use NIST traceable equipment and NIST procedures.
*ISO 9002 1987 (E) Section 4.10
**FDA Good Manufacturing Practices Section 820.61
When ordering, make sure you tell our customer service representative that you want the product "with certification". If ordering by email or phone, simply add the suffix "C" to the regular catalog number. For example, Timer 810026 becomes 810026C in its certified version.
Allow 10 to 13 business days for product certification and order processing.
We will do our best to meet your deadline.
Each certified product comes with:
- "Certificate of Compliance" - Specifies that the product has been tested and found to be within its stated tolerance for accuracy.
- "Certificate of Calibration" - Similar to above but for products which can be adjusted to the standard they are tested against.
- "Certificate Traceable to NIST" - Specifies that the standards against which the product has been certified or calibrated were themselves calibrated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), or with NIST calibrated equipment under conditions specified by NIST.
