Alternate Systems specializes in standards testing services.

Alternate Systems is a calibration services and testing laboratory that provides standards testing services to ensure "Better Measurements For A Better World."

With over 30 years experience in coating, film, and plating thickness measurement, we bring unparalleled experience to application and calibration of Fischer instruments in the fields of alloy conductivity, coating thickness measurement, ferrite measurement, plating thickness measurement, and X-ray fluorescence (XRF).

Standards Testing Services

Alternate Systems principals have over two decades of experience working for Fischer Technology, Hitachi High-Tech, and Seiko Instruments (SII Nanotechnology).

We are an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited and ISO 9001 certified calibration and testing laboratory with comprehensive radiation safety and training capabilities.

We have calibrated many thousands of instruments utilizing these principles and has participated as a subject matter expert in coating thickness measurement and XRF for Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories.

Approved Commercial Calibration And Testing Lab

Alternate Systems is an approved commercial calibration and testing lab in these fields for the Primary Standards Laboratory at Sandia National Labs.

You can send your standards testing services to Alternate Systems with the confidence that they will be expertly serviced with your application taken into consideration.

Alternate Systems has manufactured tens of thousands of high accuracy film thickness standards in a variety of novel supports and mounts, so you can trust Alternate Systems with your standards needs.

In addition to standards testing services our calibration services include calibrating and servicing a variety of measuring instruments and process controls with specialization in XRF, Eddy current, and magnetic induction coating thickness measurement, XRF and film thickness standards, electronic test instruments, and temperature. Other core skills are calibrating non-ferrous alloy conductivity measuring instruments and standards for aerospace and ferrite measuring instruments and standards for welding.

Our temperature mapping services include placing sensors throughout a space to log data and report results to our clients in accordance with 21 CFR Parts 210/211.

We provide non-destructive coating and plating coating thickness measurements, manufacture metal foil and plated standards for use with energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (XRF) coating analyzers, and calibration services for XRF coating analyzers and other non-destructive coating thickness measuring instruments and calibration standards. Radiation safety programs, surveys and training complement this work. We also have broad capabilities in chemical, electrical, physical, and thermodynamic calibration and testing.

In addition to standards testing services we have been manufacturing Mylar film or foil thickness calibration standards for magnetic induction and Eddy current coating thickness measurement instruments since 1994. Now these standards are being provided for manufacturers measuring instruments using new technologies. We make the best film thickness standards in the world! We are now manufacturing film thickness standards for near-IR interferometers and confocal cameras.

Alternate Systems provides radiation and laser safety programs, training, radiation safety surveys, and expert consultation in coating measurement and analysis to aerospace manufacturers, defense manufacturers, research laboratories, and surface finishers.

In addition to standards testing services we specialize in providing 21 CFR Parts 210/211 validation, cold chain GMP services, cold chain cGMP and GXP services, cold chain temperature monitoring, temperature-controlled storage facility mapping, temperature measuring systems, temperature calibration, temperature mapping, and many other validation and calibration services. Alternate Systems designs, installs, calibrates, and validates environmental monitoring and alarm SCADA systems.

We are your calibration and validation experts.

Our skilled standards testing services technicians love working with customers and ask the right questions to ensure your devices are calibrated for your specific use. We pride ourselves on our top tier customer service and look forward to working with you.
