A wide range of Advanced Instruments Calibration Standards are available and designed to accurately calibrate our full line of Advanced® osmometers. Specific calibration levels are designated for each instrument. In addition, the calibration standards can be used to check the performance of your osmometer and test methods.
The Osmolality Linearity Set is designed to help laboratories easily monitor osmometer performance specifications for verifying the reportable range of a laboratory method. The package contains two sets of 5 mL ampules with assigned values of 100, 500, 900, 1500, and 2000 mOsm/kg H2O.
Clinitrol is a true instrument reference solution and provides results that approximate the osmolality of normal body fluids and physiological solutions.. Use Clinitrol to verify system calibration and as a daily system check to strengthen your laboratory’s quality control program.
Protinol is a line of protein-based serum osmometer control solutions intended for use in evaluating the performance of your osmometer in clinical laboratories testing of human serum samples. Protinol is specifically formulated at three clinically relevant decision levels (240, 280, 320 mOsm) allowing laboratories to comply with CLIA and CAP quality control requirements.
What is Instrument Calibration?
One of the primary processes used to maintain instrument accuracy, calibration is the process of configuring an instrument to provide a result for a sample within an acceptable range. Eliminating or minimizing factors that cause inaccurate measurements is a fundamental aspect of instrumentation design.
