There are many benefits in taking advantage of this service: you can come by, visit our facility and scan the samples together with our scientists. We are flexible.
Another option would be to send us your samples for characterization. On request our scientist will video chat with you through the working process. We will scan the samples according to your specifications. You can be assured our scientist will handle your samples with premium care and caution.
The measurement equipment is checked, updated, and calibrated regularly to ensure the best quality and reliability possible for your scans.
