Temperature Calibration Methods
Before OptiMlet is put into operation for the first time, it must be calibrated using
appropriate reference substances with melting points that are known exactly. In
addition, the OptiMelt temperature calibration must be checked, and readjusted if
necessary, every six months (minimum) to maintain the instrument within its
factory-certified accuracy specifications.
A fresh calibration of the OptiMelt must be performed every 6 months.
Analytical quality control (QC) Laboratories, are required to test their melting
point instrumentation on a regular basis, against Certified Reference Standards
(CRSs), to determine the acceptability of their instruments according to specific
QC requirements set forth by Local, National and International Standards and
