The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) accredited Fischer Technology (Windsor, Connecticut) to ISO/IEC 17025:2005, the internationally accepted standard for calibration laboratories. The company, which manufactures coating thickness as well as material testing, analysis and nanoindentation equipment, can now offer ISO 17025 certifications for a variety of instruments and standards, including film thickness instruments and standards for eddy current, magnetic induction, X-ray fluorescence, coulometric and beta backscatter applications; electrical conductivity instruments and standards for eddy current comparison; ferrite number instruments and standards; and nanoindentation instruments and standards.
