Proper instrument calibration can be looked at as the foundation of all laboratory patient testing. Proper calibration is the first step to producing reliable results and assuring good instrument performance. For this reason laboratories should always ensure proper calibration. It establishes a reference point that helps assist instruments to produce accurate testing results. All instruments of measurement, no matter what they measure, require periodic calibration. Even non-laboratory items, such as scales for food preparation, require periodic calibration.
