Metrological tests (MTK) - calibration of medical equipment

Metrological tests (MTK) - calibration of medical equipment

Precision in medical equipment is essential for a correct diagnosis. This is why the accuracy of this equipment’s displays has to be checked regularly.
We perform this metrological test on

  • Blood pressure apparatus
  • Thermometers to measure body temperature and
  • Pedal ergometers

on your premises. 

The metrological testing of medical equipment with a measuring function is regulated in the Medical Devices Operator Ordinance. The accuracy of the displays of these devices has to be regularly tested at intervals of 12 to 24 months depending on the type of device. This metrological test is often also referred to as “calibration”.
