A private laboratory specialized in the analysis, testing and failure analysis of materials since 1993

The analysis of foreign matter enables identification :

- Of the morphology of contamination,
- Of the nature of the contamination,
- Of the source of the contamination,
The laboratory (CRITT) is COFRAC-accredited for the filtration and removal of foreign bodies. This methodology has been used for several years for the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, electronics, etc.

Observations are possible using high-resolution images with the associated sizing.

SEM-EDX analysis is used to identify the presence of chemical elements from beryllium on all types of samples: metallic, inorganic or organic.

FTIR spectrometry analysis coupled with microscopy is used to identify the origin of an organic particle.

Comparisons with references may be made in order to identify the particles.
