Certified Calibration Standards
With well over 300 different calibration standards, Fischer has the right reference material for any application in its portfolio. The calibration standards are available in solid-matter or foil formats, with pure elements, single or multi-layers, or even alloy layers.
Our calibration standards are produced in our laboratory, which is accredited according to ISO 17025. Depending on the required traceability, the calibration standards are available with either a factory certificate or an ISO 17025 certificate. Calibration standards with ISO 17025 certificate have a lower measurement uncertainty; due to their proven traceability, they are accepted internationally for known basic units. On request, we can also recertify your standards.
Your Own Product as Calibration Standard
But the Fischer test laboratories offer more: we can even certify our customers' products as reference materials according to ISO 17025. Customers then receive a certified test standard that exactly matches the product. For certification, our test laboratories can carry out a variety of test methods that go above and beyond the normal Fischer product portfolio. If necessary, Fischer can also reach out to its network of partner laboratories, which offer their own test methods for carrying out comparison and verification measurements. As a Fischer customer, you can rest assured that your samples are referenced by professionals using the best possible test methods.
Below is a listing of the X- Ray standards we have traceable uncertainty with ISO 17025 at Fischer Technology.
One of the common questions we get is regarding alloys. We can’t source traceable alloy standards such as Tin – Lead (SnPb) and Nickel - Zinc (NiZn) for the ISO 17025 certifications.
Most of the standards, as of now, are purchased through DAkkS, which are producers of traceable certified reference materials, and are the equivalent of NIST, only in Germany.
Presently we can measure with ISO 17025 (with multiple bases)
- Silver (Ag)
- Gold (Au)
- Copper (Cu)
- Nickel (Ni)
- Tin (Sn)
- Titanium (Ti)
- Zinc (Zn)
