Does the Rigaku KT-100S handheld LIBS need to be re-calibrated periodically?

Metal Analysis Group recommends periodically performing a system check using the included check samples.  If the Rigaku KT-100S continues to perform as expected, a factory calibration is not required.  However, a certification only or full recalibration/recertification process is available for companies who wish to periodically have their system’s performance checked by a third party.
