Calibration for Standardized Measurements

Calibration is performed to make sure that the range of Perimed products all around the world measure the same values. Different devices are used for the different products.

PF 1000 Calibration Device

The Motility Standard included in the PF 1000 Calibration Device is used to calibrate all Perimed laser Doppler probes. It is a colloidal suspension of polystyrene particles. Brownian motion of these particles provides a standardized perfusion value, equivalent to a perfusion of 250 perfusion units (PU).

For best practice, calibration should be checked at a minimum every month. In addition, calibration should be done when a new probe is attached or prior to sending probes for sterilization. It is especially important to calibrate if the measuring range is low. For example, when measuring on teeth, a displaced ZERO could be very misleading, as the range can be 0 – 10 PU.

TC 600 Calibration Unit

The tcpO2 electrode is calibrated using TC 510 Calibration Gas and TC 600 Calibration Unit.

Atmospheric air is used to calibrate the tcpO2 electrode. However, if the oxygen contents of the ambient air deviates from the oxygen content of normal atmospheric air (20.9% O2), TC 510 Calibration Gas may be used.

Calibration box for PeriScan PIM 3 System and PeriCam PSI System

Calbox and Calbox lid for PSI & PIM 3

The calibration box supplied with the PeriScan PIM 3 System and PeriCam PSI System is a tool to verify that the instrument is consistent and gives reliable measurement data. Different calibration boxes are used for respective instrument types, but the same lid can be used. The recommendation is to perform the verification once a week and save the values in a file.
