Starna extends range of CRMs to cover Far UV to NIR spectral region

Starna Scientific’s Reference Material and Calibration manufacturing laboratory has extended the Starna range of Certified Reference Materials (CRMs), providing the most comprehensive range of UV/Visible/NIR Materials currently available under the scope of ISO Guide 34 + ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation for Reference Material producers.

"We now hold a unique position in the production of CRMs for wavelength and Transmittance scales, certified in accordance with ISO Guide 34 and ISO/IEC 17025, for the complete Far UV to NIR spectral region (190 – 2850 nm)," explained Keith Hulme, Starna's Managing Director.

The Starna® Lifetime Guarantee is offered on all Starna® manufactured Certified Reference Materials (CRMs). The guarantee provides for a free of charge replacement should the assigned values move outside the expanded uncertainty budget within the recertification period of two years, subject to conditions of use/care and recertification by Starna at least every two years.

The CRMs are essential for ISO/IEC accredited laboratories, pharmaceutical QA/QC or metrology departments enabling the provision of Operational Qualification (OQ) and Performance Qualification (PQ) of UV/Visible/NIR instrumentation using 'Industry Standard' protocols.

Starna is the only Reference Material producer accredited to both ISO Guide 34 and ISO/IEC 17025 in the UV/Visible/NIR spectral range. The CRMs the company now provide extend the scope of available materials for spectral range, band width and photometric linearity.
