Pipette Calibration
Optimal Analysis Quality
Guaranteed by METTLER TOLEDO Pipette Calibration
The Laboratoire Départemental d’Analyses de la Drôme (LDA) in France
offers a wide range of services including sampling, analysis, consulting
and monitoring within the fields of environment and veterinary biology. For them, ensuring constant high quality is the ultimate goal and
METTLER TOLEDO’s XP26PC is their balance of choice.
Quality, Compliance and
In their constant pursue for quality, the
Drôme LDA must continually ensure the
reliability of measuring instruments, especially those situated ‘upstream’ of the
analysis and measuring process i.e. the
pipettes. They needed a replacement for
their current system in order to comply
with ISO 8655 requirements, in other
words, a solution that employs the refer-

the XP26PC balance and Calibry calibration software to fulfill the ISO 8655 calibration requirements for micropipettes.
Ms. Brunel states that, “the large pipetting vessel capacity (10 ml), the extremely fast speed of the balance

which, they feel, exceed previous established specifications.
