The Difference between Validation and Calibration - Temprecord

The Difference between Validation and Calibration

  • Calibration provides corrections required to make the logger accurate. Calibration is a comparison with a standard or reference resulting in determined corrections and uncertainties [pretty much a characterisation of the instrument] and the results of the calibration may or may not be used to adjust the instrument.


  • Verification is a check against a reference to verify that an instrument meets its manufacturers’ broad and general specifications.


  •  Validation provides information on the accuracy (or inaccuracy) of the logger. Validation is a check that an instrument meets the specifications for a specific intended use [what a lab might do internally to determine that an instrument is fit for purpose].

Temprecord builds the calibration corrections into the logger firmware, so the data downloaded is accurate to within 0.2 °C without the User having to add a correction formula to the data, deleting the potential for human error or for omitting the correction altogether.

Validation of hardware and software

  • All Temprecord hardware is thoroughly tested to the high standards demanded by our ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation. Our processes also require our manufacturing and laboratory staff to be trained and approved to the same high standards, becoming approved signatories.
  • All Temprecord software applications are validated and a detailed Validation Package is available upon request.
