Multi-point calibrations are undertaken when customers have time and temperature sensitive products requiring enhanced calibration in order to meet strict regulatory compliance standards. This is especially relevant for the temperature controlled storage of vaccines, blood, plasma and tissue inventories.
Employing nearly 100 people, Tutela is one of the UK’s leading specialist provider of temperature monitoring systems to the medical and scientific sector. Tutela supplies monitoring systems to the NHS, being N3 Cloud Approved and an approved NHS Supply Chain partner, as well as major companies such as Grifols, Gen-Probe, Nuffield Health and BMI.
The company’s successful application for ISO17025 accreditation was a key part of Tutela’s ongoing programme of continual improvement, and was awarded after satisfying rigorous audits of the company’s technical competence, expertise, processes, procedures, training both on and off site.
Tim Bartholomew, CEO of Tutela, said: “ISO17025 accreditation gives clients the assurance that we uphold the highest standards in calibration services across the company and reinforce our ability to compete internationally for major contracts. The new certification allows us to undertake accredited multi-point calibrations and plays a vital role in supporting our highly regulated clients in meeting their compliance needs.”
Under the ISO17025 standard, accredited businesses such as Tutela undergo ongoing internal and external audits overseen by UKAS, which examine procedures, competencies and good practice in order to maintain the UKAS Accreditation.
UKAS is the national accreditation body for the United Kingdom, appointed by government, to assess organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.
Tutela’s UKAS Certificate of Accreditation to the ISO17025 can be found on the website.
