Tracing back the magnetisation or susceptibility values determined by means of any magnetometer directly to the basic SI units requires considerable effort and complicated equipment which is at hand in standards laboratories only. For these reasons normal laboratories calibrate the measuring apparatus with the help of reference samples, the relevant magnetic properties of which have been determined by such a standards laboratory. In particular, it is common usage to calibrate magnetometers having an iron core electromagnet with the help of cylindrical reference samples.
