Easier Calibration for Traditional Instruments




From Lab Manager, Nick Riggs


In 2015, Technidyne began offering large format calibration standards for Technidyne Technibrite instruments (TB-1 & Micro TB-1C) to:

  • improve calibration quality - by measuring all 5 points on the same sheet of paper
  • improve ease of use - no more shuffling 2" x 2" tabs
This month, Technidyne is providing another improvement. After extensive testing and verification, we now have only three points for your calibration and verification routines. You obtain the same quality of calibration using our new 3-point calibration tabs and significantly reduce the time you need to spend calibrating and maintaining your instruments.

Once you open your tabs, you'll notice the "F sheet" (felt side, measured sheet) has been reformatted to aid in your 3-point calibration. Instead of 5 measurement positions, you will see that the new measured positions have been circled and labeled 1, 2 & 3, as below:


You will also notice that the traceability form has been updated. The data on the traceability form is now collected and reported automatically, which reduces the potential for human error in producing your calibration supplies. All the information from previous forms is still here, it’s just in a new format. As always, Technidyne is an ISO Level III Authorized Laboratory and calibration supplies for Technibrite™ instruments are still directly traceable to the National Research Council of Canada.

If you have any questions regarding your new calibration standards, please feel free to contact us directly in the Lab, or reach out to your sales and service contacts. Email Nick
