Welcome to CYCLERtest®

The calibration department of CYCLERtest BV (CelsiusLabs) is ISO/IEC 17025 accredited for temperature calibrations and on site calibrations of (q)PCR cyclers according to the accreditation scope (RvA K145).

CYCLERtest is a leading manufacturer and provider of highly accurate thermocycler calibration systems and services.

Through its highly accurate calibration tools CYCLERtest enables laboratories to assure its thermocyclers to perform according to specifications, in order to produce reproducible, trustworthy and technical valid PCR results.
CYCLERtest is able to calibrate virtually any thermocycler, from basic PCR thermocyclers to highly advanced qPCR thermocyclers.

On site thermocycler calibration service performed with MTAS equipment

The CYCLERtest on site thermocycler calibration service is ISO 17025 accredited (RvA K145) and thereby meets all international requirements of a manufacturer independent traceable calibration as demanded by the accreditation standards of ISO 17025 accredited testing labs, ISO 15189 accredited medical testing labs and ISO 13485 certified CE-IVD kit manufacturers. The on site calibration service furthermore complies to many other regulatory guidelines and standards like GMP, GLP, FDA, ASHI, EFI, NY State, CLIA, CAP etc.
The thermocycler calibrations are performed with our MTAS tools by highly experienced qualified service engineers at the location of the laboratory to minimize down time and allow continuity of the laboratory.

CYCLERtest gained US Patent for Optical Calibration of qPCR cyclers

Date: 03-Feb-2019

CYCLERtest is proud to announce that its patent for the optical calibration of qPCR cyclers is now also granted in the USA. The US patent complements similar patents held by CYCLERtest in Europe and Japan.

The traceable Optical Calibration tool and service is ‘a major breakthrough for molecular diagnostics and life sciences’ according to CEO Tom Hendrikx. ‘With this advanced technique variables in qPCR are monitored, minimized and become controllable. This gives laboratories a better understanding of the qPCR process and enables them to expand its capabilities. This superior method with new developed hardware supersedes the, so far used, non traceable techniques as biological testing, crystal color changes and others!’

The innovative technique is based on the traceable calibration of temperature, optical detection and light of (q) PCR cyclers (excitation and emission). A truly unique method since these components are not only detected and generated separately but also in relationship to each other. By doing so, the performance of the real-time thermal cycler is monitored and calibrated like never before.
