DOST marks World Metrology Day with lab inauguration
by PNA release

The Department of Science and Technology celebrated World Metrology Day by inaugurating the state-of-the-art National Metrology Laboratory (NML) at its compound in Bicutan, Taguig City.

DOST Usec. Rowena Cristina Guevara said private firms can now have their equipment calibrated at the NML, instead of sending their equipment to foreign laboratories, as she assured of NML equipment’s calibration accuracy.

The NML’s newly-renovated Mass Standards Laboratory (MSL) offers a wider scope of calibration services. For calibration of non-automatic weighing instruments, the laboratory features equipment that could calibrate up to 300 kg.

“Research results on new measurement methods, including those using quantum phenomena, underpin the change. The SI (International Systems of Units) is now based on a set of definitions each linked to the law of physics and has the advantage of being able to embrace further improvements in measurement science and technology to meet the needs of future users for many years to come,” the DOST said in a statement.

The laboratory can best cater to the food, manufacturing, and pharmaceutical industries.

The World Metrology Day highlights the impact of measurement on people.

With the goal of providing stakeholders more accurate measurements, the DOST opened the NML equipped with state of the art tools and equipment.

Guevara said this laboratory is open to the public, although only the DOST staff are allowed to operate the equipment.
