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.

DRIFTCON end user thermocycler calibration systems

Besides its calibration services, CYCLERtest also provides DRIFTCON end user calibration systems to laboratories that perform in house calibrations. Complemented with the CYCLERtest qualification trainings the requirements of traceable in house calibrations can be met.

Supply chain (e)quality

Date: 14-Nov-2019

We all want to enjoy a wonderful meal and drink a glass of tap water to quench our thirst without having to worry about safety. The same counts for the diagnosis we receive from a laboratory test.

Therefore our commitment to quality is not restricted to our products and services. The highest standards are achieved when the entire supply chain focuses on quality, from manufacturers of thermal cyclers through distributors to end-users. End-users play the most important roll to ensure reliable (q)PCR results. After all: any lack of attention to reliability can have negative implications.

All parties involved comply with certain regulations to combat problems, concentrating on preventing instead of curing them. By doing so, the highest quality level is met.

  • Distributors control the quality of thermal cyclers with MTAS calibration tools to meet specifications
  • End-users control the quality of their thermal cyclers annually - either with Driftcon calibration tools or with accredited on-site calibration service with MTAS system – to fully understand the performance of their cycler
  • Calibration tools are calibrated in an accredited calibration laboratory to make sure that they perform according to international standards
  • (q)PCR consumables are manufactured according to strict specifications for reproducible and reliable results. The characteristics:
    * Composition is always identical so consistent results
    * Low binding: all DNA is available for a reaction
    * (q)PCR is possible in volumes as low as 5µl
    * Pyrogyn, DNA(se) & RNA(se) free

We are extremely proud to have achieved this level of quality with our cooperation partners and are committed to further expand this method.
Better be safe than sorry!
