Weekly Calibration Samples

The Check Mark laboratory manufactures raw bovine milk calibration standards each week to be used in other labs across the region. We can also develop customized calibration standards specifically for your IR analyzer to monitor your specific dairy product.

Component calibration samples are typically manufactured and shipped each Monday with results available Wednesday. Somatic cell control samples are also manufactured and shipped each Monday with results available Thursday.  

Feel free to view one of our reports posted below for an example of what our calibration sample sets typically look like. Please contact us for details, pricing, or questions. We are happy to accommodate special needs if we are able to.
