The NCERA-101 Instrument packages were funded by the NSF in 1972, as a “standardized instrument package” to provide a calibration reference for cooperating laboratories. The package has evolved over the years and now includes packages with unique instruments. These packages supplement the calibration standard packages.
Four packages are currently available for rental:
- These instruments are available for rental by any member of NCERA-101.
- The rental period is two weeks, excluding shipping time.
- Return shipping and appropriate insurance is paid by the user. Insure all packages for $5000 (US) except for the Humidity/temperature package, which should be insured for $4000.
|Any one instrument package||$300|
|Any two instrument packages at the same time||$450|
|Any three packages at the same time||$600|
|All four packages at the same time||$750|
This fee includes shipping, recalibration costs, and account management. The fee also supports a fund that is used to purchase new instruments for the packages.
