Metrology is the study of measurement, and is inseparable from the needs of scientific accuracy. For thousands of years, standards of measurement and calibration have helped advance discovery. Metrology in the modern era relies upon a host of devices, from probes to software to revolutionary tools previously only imagined in science fiction. As technology changes rapidly, the need for advanced metrology solutions increases. Researchers and manufacturers rely upon metrology to ensure accuracy in results. As more products enter the market that promise such standards for quality, it can become bewildering to sift through the choices that an organization should use to keep its instruments operating nominally. Another challenge is how to validate metrology devices. Providing customers with the right education and tools to address their metrology concerns becomes paramount. Different companies may approach this in different ways. Some choose to outsource metrology services. Others provide a more personable approach, working directly with metrology devices and/or software that sync with their own in-house asset control, thereby building a strong rapport with the metrology service provider. Understanding the needs for accurate devices is only one step in the process to achieve quality and reproducibility. The implementation of metrology services in any form entails taking time to explore all options. Educating clients on the benefits of metrology modernization can go a long way in establishing trust and camaraderie going forward. Learn more about how Qualer can assist you in your metrology needs.

Your organization needs instruments that can ensure accuracy, precision, and reproducibility, all key tenets of scientific research quality. Keeping instruments calibrated for such a task becomes paramount. So what does it mean to have ISO 17025 accreditation, and how can Qualer help?
Qualer was designed to transform both asset management and service event management, so our ecosystem would be ineffective if it only served one purpose. Instead, we created Qualer to be bi-directional - moving ideas, improvements, and conversations between asset stakeholders in both management and servicing roles.
When monitoring, managing, and servicing numerous assets across your client’s organizations and your own, visibility and understanding are vital to your success. As part of our exploration of Qualer’s innovative features and functionalities, we’re taking a closer look at the comprehensive dashboards offered through our platform.
Accreditation is vitally important for service providers and calibration labs in every industry. Though voluntary, accreditation can often dictate the success of your business and your ability to maintain a steady stream of revenue.
For asset managers, the FDA and Form 483 can often seem like the boogeyman — just more real and with considerably higher consequences. Enduring and passing FDA audits are a regular part of your job, but they never get easier or less nerve-wracking.
Your organization’s success is dependent on the condition of your assets. To ensure smooth operations and complete compliance, you need an asset service provider that offers reliable service and the calibration capabilities your assets require.
As a service provider, you have the option to focus on field servicing, workshop servicing, or a combination of both. Each has its own benefits for your business growth, competitiveness, and servicing abilities — though some may be more lucrative, depending on your focus. If you’ve wondered which type of service is better for you and your business, read through the analysis we’ve created for field service vs workshop service below.
