HATFIELD, Pa. (March 26, 2021) Brooks Instrument, a world leader in advanced flow, pressure and vapor delivery solutions, has made the ISO/IEC 17025 certification, one of the most important metrology and calibration certifications, available as an option on its SLA Series Biotech mass flow controllers (MFC). Engineered specifically for the needs of the biotechnology market, these MFCs are used to precisely measure and control the delivery of process gases necessary for cellular metabolism in biotech applications.

The ISO/IEC 17025 certification was already available as an option on the company's other industry-leading standard SLA5800 and SLAMf Series MFCs.

This certification, in addition to FDA/USP class VI/ADI-free elastomers and other certificates, satisfies even more regulatory compliance requirements for biopharmaceutical manufacturers that depend upon accurate flow control calibration for their applications.

Due to increased regulations in the biotech market, Brooks Instrument has invested in its manufacturing facilities in the USA and Hungary with high-precision metrology and calibration systems in order to offer the ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation issued by the globally recognized International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

“For better compliance and enhanced traceability requirements, offering ISO/IEC 17025 certification to our customers lets Brooks Instrument provide peace-of-mind with overall device accuracy, documented quality systems and consistent results from our calibration systems," said Anish Thuse, Industrial Global Product Marketing Specialist at Brooks Instrument.
