Calibration is the comparison of an instrument’s performance to a standard of known accuracy. It is the determination of the instrument’s deviation from a nominal value which may result in an adjustment, a correction factor, or an exclusion. Properly calibrated instruments provide confidence that the products/services provided are of the highest quality. Calibration increases production, ensures consistency in measurements & products, and optimizes resources.
