Time & Frequency

Time and frequency instruments must perform with minimal measurement uncertainties to meet your standard operating procedures and GMP compliance standards. Our time and frequency calibrations bring your instruments within stringent measurement parameters and reduces uncertainty by calibrating devices within 6×10-10 seconds and 0.01 Hz–2 MHzs.

We are a Primary Standards Laboratory

The calibration of primary standards is the heart of our calibration laboratory. All calibrations are performed in our ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited 10,000 ft2 environmentally-controlled metrology laboratory, maintained at 21.5°C (±0.5°C) and 40% RH (±5%) to maintain accurate and repeatable results. Our NIST trained staff calibrate primary standards using NIST-certified fixed point cells for maximum accuracy and repeatability and the lowest uncertainties.

And for nearly 40 years, our customers trust us for top-quality SI traceable calibration services, quick turnaround, letter-perfect certificates and the lowest industry uncertainties. 




  • Class 1 Mass calibrations, the only lab in the North East capable of accredited Class 1 from 1 mg to 30 kg
  • Fixed-Point Thermometry, capable of SPRT calibration from -196 °C to 660 °C
  • Pressure up to 1,000 psia/g. With Fluke’s PG primary deadweight tester, we’re capable of measuring pressure within <0.002%
  • Accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 through ANAB

Three Levels of Calibration Certifications

We recognize that calibration needs and compliance requirements vary among our customers and within our industry. Alcami has developed three levels of service for calibration certificates to meet those varied needs and has the experience to help you navigate these options.

LEVEL 1- Accredited Certificate with Guardbanding

  • ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Accredited 
  • The decision rule takes measurement uncertainty into account to determine a statement of conformity using the RDS method
  • Includes Measurement Uncertainties
  • Includes a statement of conformity (ie: Pass, Fail, Pass Indeterminate, Fail Indeterminate)
  • In accordance with ILAC G8 methodologies

LEVEL 2- Accredited Certificate

  • ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Accredited 
  • Includes Measurement Uncertainties
  • Does not include a statement of conformity (ie: Pass, Fail, Pass Indeterminate, Fail Indeterminate will not be designated on calibration certificate)
  • Customer determines Pass / Fail

LEVEL 3- Non-Accredited Certificate

  • ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System
  • Commercial Calibration
  • Traceable to the International System of Units
  • Does not include Measurement Uncertainties

Whether you need Level 1, Level 2 or Level 3 metrology services and certificates, rest assured our services utilize the same equipment standards, the same quality program and the same subject matter experts.

Alcami continuously prepares for our accreditation to ensure that we are not only audit-ready, but we are also performance ready every day. This accreditation symbolizes our commitment to quality and gives you peace of mind that our laboratory surpassed audit evaluations of our technical qualifications and competency. Alcami proudly maintains a success rate of 98% certificate accuracy.

The Alcami Difference

Our development of best practices allows our labs to attain the lowest uncertainties in the industry.  Alcami’s measurements are traceable to recognized International Standards, and Accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 through ANAB throughout.

Alcami is a Primary Standards Laboratory. Primary Standards calibrations are performed in a Class 10,000 Clean Room with seismically isolated mass comparators. All primary mass and weight standards are calibrated by NIST to ensure traceability and repeatability. 

  • Class 1 Mass calibrations, the only lab in the North East capable of accredited Class 1 from 1 mg to 30 kg
  • Fixed-Point Thermometry, capable of SPRT calibration from -196 °C to 660 °C
  • Pressure up to 1,000 psia/g. With Fluke’s PG primary deadweight tester, we’re capable of measuring pressure within <0.002%


Our 11,000 ft2 labs meet critical temperature and humidity parameters and utilize the most advanced technology and equipment ensuring industry excellence. Every calibration is traceable to the International Standard of Units (SI) through the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) or other national metrology institutes.

Only the highest caliber processes and procedures are acceptable at Alcami yielding the highest quality calibration services available. For example, we personally hand carry our fixed point temperature and mass standards to NIST headquarters in Gaithersburg, MD for calibration, which significantly contributes to the lowest uncertainties and greater precision for every calibration we perform.

Our external proficiency tests examine our processes and standards compared to industry colleagues. These outcomes consistently showcase our exceptional abilities and affirm our position is 100% on-target when juxtaposed to the industry at large. Regular internal audits monitor all facets of our processes and our quality system is routinely audited by customers.

Our Senior Metrologist is NIST trained and many of our Quality staff are also certified through American Society for Quality (ASQ). They have completed the required training and earned the following certifications: ASQ-CMQ/OE, ASQ-CQA and ASQ-CQT.

Armed with this level of knowledge and expertise, our team members are proven problem-solvers and innovators who identify customer needs and deliver on those needs with exceptional service.
