Service Overview


Before testing, each pipette is disassembled and undergoes a thorough inspection of internal and external components. The instruments are then cleaned, and worn parts are replaced as needed.

For many brands of pipettes, minor parts such as seals & o-rings must be replaced on regular intervals to ensure proper function, and to maintain calibration. Competitors often use generic or lower-quality replacement parts to save costs and overhead.  Tek-Pette only uses premium manufacturers-brand parts, and the highest quality polyethylene seals & o-rings available.

After we inspect and recondition each pipette, we thoroughly test and record samples at high, middle and low volumes to ensure calibration across the full range of the pipette. This data is provided to you in the form of a computerized calibration log that contains certificates of calibration for each pipette. Tek-Pette also stores all of your calibration reports digitally, for easy retrieval if lost or needed for inspections..


Finally, Tek-Pette only uses regularly-calibrated Mettler-Toledo balances designed specifically for pipette calibration. Our balances are equipped the latest technologies, such as humidity traps to prevent evaporation, and our computers are fitted with the most up-to-date calibration software today. Your pipettes can only be as precise as the equipment being used to test them, which is why Tek-Pette goes above and beyond, every step of the way.

Our lab started using Tek-Pette a few years ago because we weren’t satisfied with our previous company. Since we switched to Tek-Pette we have been extremely happy, as they do a great job from beginning to end. It’s easy to set up and schedule, when they arrive they are friendly and very efficient at the job, and when they are done they give you good records to keep track of the calibrations. We have never had a problem with Tek-Pette and they are by far the best pipette calibration service we have used.
