NIST Calibration Overview

All  Temperature@lert sensors can be provided with a Traceable Calibration  Certification which meets the requirements and complies with ISO 17025.  The Traceable Certificate indicates that the product is traceable to  standards provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology  (NIST), a U.S. Government agency within the Commerce Department.  This  is commonly required by customers in the health/medicine field or anyone  who needs a higher level of accuracy on their sensors.



  • The calibration process can take anywhere from 1 - 4 weeks  depending on how busy the lab is - please keep this in mind when placing  an order.


  • Due to the delay of NIST calibration, we can split the shipment  to ensure you get any hardware that isn't required to be at the lab  during calibration.


  • There is no set expiration date on NIST calibration - this  expiration is provided by the agency that would audit your temperature  data.  We commonly see times of 6 months, 1 year or 2 years.  Simply let  us know your threshold and we can have the lab add a proper expiration  date.


  • If you provide us your expiration time, we will contact you  several weeks before your renewal is due to ensure you don't go without  calibrated monitoring.


  • If you want NIST calibration added to sensors you already  purchased, you must ship the sensors back to us first.  Please Contact  Us for RMA instructions.


  • When it is time to renew your NIST certification, we recommend  purchasing a 2nd set of sensors to avoid going without monitoring due to  sending your original sensor back to the lab.
