Centrifuge Calibration Services
Centrifuge calibration is an important component of quality control in GMP and GLP settings. Improper centrifugation speed and time can have subtle to dramatic effects on your process and sample quality. Under performance can produce soft pellets or improper separation of components which can result in carry-over of contaminants and reduce the quality of samples. Over speed or increased time can induce cell lysis and contaminate samples with DNA and host cell protein.
In clinical settings centrifuges play a critical role in sample preparation. Speed accuracy in the clinic is just as important if not more so. Sub-optimal centrifugation of Plasma and Serum samples can result in downstream assay failure requiring retesting and investigation. Retesting and deviation investigations are expensive, time consuming, and can affect laboratory efficiency.
If your operation is regularly using centrifuges, you know the importance of regular calibration for them. With centrifuges, accuracy is critical. And you trust the readings from these devices. That’s why it’s so important to work with a centrifuge calibration company who also understands that importance. A company like Cross Precision Measurement.
Inspection and Calibration Procedure for Centrifuges
The precision measurement group at Cross can save you time and money by keeping your centrifuges humming at the proper speed, temperature, and completing assays on-time. Our technicians can perform calibrations of all three parameters (Speed, Temperature, Time) leaving you with confidence that your separations will be effective every time.
We can also assist with the selection of the right centrifuge to suit your needs. Our lineup of Sartorius Centrisart bench top centrifuges range from compact and space-saving micro-centrifuges to universally applicable bench top centrifuges with a total capacity of up to 1600 mL. The top-of-the-line model is a high-speed centrifuge producing a gravitational field of up to 62,000 g. Centrisart centrifuges are versatile and cost effective.
Also, our centrifuge calibration procedure is designed to have the fastest turnaround time possible while still maintaining precise accuracy. That way, you can get up and running while also knowing your centrifuge is performing reliably and consistently.

Precise Substance and Flow Measurement
Substance and flow measurement equipment need to be working at peak performance in order to meet a variety of regulatory requirements, keep productivity high, and maintain profitability. In fact, incorrectly reading flow measurement devices can (and do) cause major problems in both the short and long term for operations that rely on accurate flow readings or substance measurement. Whether you’re in municipal services, pharmaceuticals, or manufacturing, if you regularly utilize substance and flow measurement equipment, it will require regular calibration.
At Cross Precision Measurement, our full-service, ISO 17025 accredited local calibration labs and on-site calibration techs use NIST traceable equipment. Meaning we’re able to calibrate your substance and flow measurement devices or instrumentation with traceable and reliable accuracy. From air samplers to flow meters to pipettes, our lab calibration services for flow measurement assure your industrial tools, equipment, or instrumentation is calibrated to recognized standards.
Whenever we perform calibration services for flow instruments, we also always provide extensive documentation of the calibration procedure, how we found the device, how we left the device, and provide recommendations for when the device would be up for recalibration. That way all of our clients have the documentation they need for a calibration audit, internal quality check, or inspection from a regulatory body.
Cross specializes in a wide range of calibration services for substance and flow devices. We’ve worked with countless forms of flow equipment and our technicians have the knowledge and experience to bring our customers the world-class precision measurement services they deserve.

Nearby Substance and Flow Calibration Company
Many of our customers ask us, “how often should I calibrate my centrifuge?” And unfortunately, there isn’t a set in stone answer. However, we can say that the answer depends on your frequency of use. A centrifuge that isn’t used as much won’t need calibration as frequently as one that is used regularly (or daily). As they’re used more and more, that usage begins to take a toll on the internal mechanisms, decreasing their accuracy. With a device like a centrifuge, your process may rely on accurate readings. That’s why it’s so important to regularly work with a professional centrifuge calibration company.
With our modern, fully-equipped calibration laboratories, on-site calibration techs, and embedded services, Cross Precision Measurement is ready to be your nearby centrifuge calibration company. But that’s not all we want to be. We aim to be a single-source provider for our customers. That means providing the services, products, and support they need to succeed.
