Maintenance & Calibration

As your consumables and technical support provider in spirometry, we are committed to meeting your needs in respiratory care. VueTek Scientific’s quest is to maintain the highest levels of quality assurance and safety for you, the healthcare provider, and your patients. It is widely accepted that proper preventative measures can reduce the overall cost of healthcare and improve both the quality and duration of equipment life.

In conformance with ATS Standards for Spirometry Quality Control, VueTek Scientific recommends that your spirometer and calibration syringe undergo routine preventative maintenance. As the manufacturer, we recommend that each spirometer and calibration syringe be serviced annually for recalibration and recertification. This is essential to assure accurate spirometry results, extend the life of your equipment, and reduce liability concerns should you be audited. VueTek Scientific is the only authorized service center certified to service or provide the preventive maintenance care for your Spirometrics Brand equipment. We can assure that not only will the equipment be tested for functionality, but also that test results are accurate.
Should you have any questions or would like to schedule your equipment for preventive maintenance, please contact us at 1-800-767-0004 or sales@spirometrics.com.
