Why have your Martindale calibrated to UKAS standard?

We want you to get the best value from your investment in James Heal instruments, because when you buy James Heal, it’s the start of a long lasting relationship. In fact, we like to think of it as a partnership; which not only supports the equipment which you’ve purchased, but also helps you to realise the best return on your investment.

Testing Instruments are designed to simulate or to measure and consequently must perform correctly, if they are to produce reliable and reproducible results.
Paul Smith - James Heal Service Engineer

To maintain the function and accuracy of your Testing Instruments, we recommend regular Service and Calibration by our team of skilled and accredited instrument technicians. These technicians are trained to perform service and calibration and have access to the traceable calibration equipment and to the spare parts, which are required to keep your equipment in the best possible working condition.

To help you maximise your laboratory’s investment, we’ve put together a simple guide, with 10 reasons why your Martindale should be calibrated to UKAS standard
