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.

Coronavirus and RT-PCR equipment

Date: 03-Feb-2020

The latest coronavirus 2019-nCoV is diagnosed with RT-PCR which detects the amount of viral RNA in a patient’s blood, serum and/or sputum. It goes without saying that the used (q)PCR equipment has to function properly. To assure proper operation (q)PCR cyclers need to be calibrated regularly according to international standards.

ISO-norm
Even though the metrologically traceable temperature calibration is an ISO required norm for medical and test labs, not all of them adhere to the rules. But as a potential patient you don’t want to spend two weeks in isolation if you’re not sick and you don’t want to be send home when you’re seriously ill. We therefore advocate that all labs calibrate conform the norm and auditors assess accordingly. Better be safe than sorry.
