Alternate Systems specializes in optical testing.
Alternate Systems is a calibration services and testing laboratory that provides optical testing to ensure "Better Measurements For A Better World."
We are ISO/IEC 17025 accredited calibration and testing laboratory with 21 CFR Part 210/211 validation capabilities. Alternate Systems is also ISO 9001 certified.
Our skilled optical testing technicians are calibration and validation experts.
In addition to optical testing 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.
In addition to optical testing 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 optical testing 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.
