Starna offers lifetime guarantee on certified reference materials.

Starna Scientific offers a lifetime guarantee 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. The guarantee is also conditional on the references not having been optically, physically or thermally abused and recertified by Starna at least every two years.

“A lifetime guarantee on CRMs is not offered by anybody else in the market,” commented Keith Hulme, Starna’s Managing Director. “Starna is one of only six organisations currently accredited by UKAS to ISO 17025 and ISO Guide 34 as a Reference Material producer, and within this elite group there is no other manufacturer in our specific field of expertise, namely, Certified Reference Materials for UV/Visible/NIR spectrophotometer qualification”.

Starna’s high quality CRMs, which offer guaranteed stability and accuracy of value assignment, are used worldwide across a range of regulated industries, such as forensic laboratories, leading pharmaceutical manufacturing organisations, as well as accredited laboratories/metrological Q.A. facilities. Starna is able to offer a lifetime guarantee based on the company’s forty years experience of quality manufacturing supported by its attention to detail which is coupled with more than ten years of accumulated accredited data.

Starna also provides its expertise in the re-certification of reference materials manufactured by primary NMI laboratories.
