How often do I have to recertify my UV/Vis reference material?

It is recommended to recertify it regularly to ensure the validity of the calibration results of the UV/Vis reference materials. The periodicity of this recertification is up to the user and is also specific to the laboratory environment in which it is used. To establish a statistical basis for setting this recertification interval, it is recommended to have the filters recertified every 12 months in the first three years of use. After that, at a periodicity considered appropriate for the specific laboratory environment where the interval between the calibrations is determined from the data obtained in the first three years.

A review of this process should be part of any formal control of the system and any major changes in the laboratory environment should be evaluated with respect to the impact on the unit’s calibration.

Please note!

Liquid filters may only be shipped when the outside temperature is above 4 °C, as the liquid can freeze and the reference materials will be destroyed as a result. - Therefore from November to March liquid filters should only be shipped by express delivery.
