Coastal Calibration Laboratories provides durometer calibration for biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical devices companies. We calibrate all makes and models of dial and digital durometers, from Mitutoyo, Starrett, Deltronic, Rex and more. We calibrate each durometer at five test points and/or custom test points provided by you. All calibrations are traceable to the International System of Units (SI), established by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures, through the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). We can perform the durometer calibration either on-site at your facility or at our calibration laboratory. Read more about our calibration process.
Coastal Calibration Laboratories is an ISO 9001 registered, customer-focused provider of high-quality calibration services to the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical devices industries of New England. We calibrate a full range of analytical and process instruments, from pipettes to bioreactors, in laboratory and manufacturing environments.
Our goal as your quality calibration vendor is to provide calibration services that a) are metrologically valid, b) will be unquestioned by auditors and c) are easy to understand. We accomplish this goal through:
Focus: We are the only company in New England focused on providing calibration to biotech, pharmaceutical and medical devices companies. This focus gives us better knowledge of your operating environment and particular needs, which allows us to provide unparalleled calibration services.
Quality: We are an ISO 9001 registered company with a quality system that is compliant with applicable portions of ISO/IEC 17025: General Requirement for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories. View our Quality Manual.
Expertise: Our founder and president, Brian Sams, is one of only two Metrologists in New England with a degree in Metrology. In a nutshell, Metrology is the science behind calibration. And, yes, it’s nerdy stuff, but we love it, and it forms the basis of our scientific approach to calibrating your instruments. While other companies simply record measurements and provide certificates, we understand the measurements reported on our certificates. This enables us to better explain the results, which can help you understand the root cause behind any non-conformance so you can defend your position to auditors and improve system performance.
Customer Dedication: We are here to serve you and ease the stress of managing your calibration program. We can usually be at your site within a day or two – sometimes on the same day. We start as early as needed and work as late as needed to accommodate your schedule. We also enable customers to access and print their certificates 24/7 through an easy-to-use interface on our website. View demo here
