Calibry 5.0 Supports Companywide Pipette Management

Improved software monitors recalibration dates and tracks RFID-enabled pipettes

Published: Monday, August 22, 2011 - 14:06

(Mettler-Toledo: Greifensee, Switzerland) -- Mettler-Toledo International Inc., a leader in the research and development of products and services in the precision instrument industry, has introduced Calibry 5.0 pipette calibration software, now also compatible with radio frequency identification (RFID)-enabled RAININ pipettes. Calibry 5.0 enables the tracking of pipettes and the monitoring of recalibration dates. Simplified calibration processes allow pipette accuracy to be easily monitored through regular testing.

Calibration dates and other identifying information can be written directly to RFID-enabled RAININ pipettes. Calibry can instantly read the serial numbers on pipettes by means of an RFID scanner. Productivity is increased by speeding up the calibration process for both single- and multichannel pipettes.

Comprehensive pipette information can be accessed via the newly developed Quick Access window. It is easy to check the recalibration dates for individual pipettes, and the calibration method can be started directly from the window. Calibry automatically adds pipettes to the calibration task list as recalibration dates approach and provides step-by-step guidance through the calibration process. Data are recorded automatically, saving time and eliminating operator error.

Introducing regular pipette testing provides an early indication of when a pipette may be going out of tolerance and avoids the use of out-of-date pipettes. Calibry maintains a full calibration history for each pipette, which can be viewed at any time. User management and audit trail functions assist companies to comply with the Code of Federal Regulations on electronic signatures and electronic records, 21 CFR Part 11, and ISO 8655 from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Mettler-Toledo also offers a complete validation manual and service.
