Scientists Identify Unknown Materials to Resolve Mysteries and Support Manufacturing Operations
Advanced MicroAnalytical offers unknown material identification services to detect and categorize unexplained residues, deposits and other mysterious substances.
Salem, NH, March 22nd, 2019 Getting an idea of the composition of a truly unknown material is a common need, yet complex problem. Unlike how Hollywood has portrayed laboratory testing in movies and television series, accurately determining the composition of a completely unknown material is a challenging process. This is due to the fact that in the real world there rarely is a single test that can provide the answers needed. Also, picking the wrong or too specific of a test can yield no practical value, not to mention consuming time, money.......[Read More]
Manufacturers Depend on AMA’s Quality Assurance Testing Resources to Ensure High Standards and Optimal Products
Advanced MicroAnalytical’s state of the art materials testing laboratory offers third-party quality assurance solutions to manufacturers of a diverse range of materials, components and final products.
Salem, NH, March 8th, 2019 Ensuring high standards for internal quality assurance (QA) efforts can be daunting. So too can relying solely upon data from suppliers. In fact, the situation can quickly turn problematic in many circumstances if there are no internal and external checks undertaken by a qualified independent contract laboratory. While there are often excellent internal metrics in place for well understood products, when an unexpected issue appears it may not be an issue that the existing QA department is equipped to handle........[Read More]
Process and Product Validation Services to Support Manufacturing Industries
Advanced MicroAnalytical offers product and process validation solutions to help industry develop and maintain quality control over all types of raw materials and final products.
Salem, NH, February 18th, 2019 Manufacturing operations across the globe are continually locked in a struggle to increase not only the quality of parts, but also the speed and reliability with which they can be made. Simultaneously, there are often constantly competing interests that are striving to lower costs and better manage lead time. Unfortunately, these interests often work at cross-purposes. If the cheapest source of components and raw materials contributed to the highest quality final product, there would be no need to perform.......[Read More]
Outsourced Product Development and R&D Support Services Provide Industry with Competitive Edge
Advanced MicroAnalytical offers solutions to complex product development challenges through a wide range of scientific testing and engineering support services.
Salem, NH, February 13th, 2019 Product development efforts are often complicated, multi-phase endeavors. Multiple departments or researchers with different disciplines frequently need to interact in order to drive forward progress on a new product. Developing new materials and new devices can also oftentimes involve new techniques on the edge of a company’s core competency. In many cases, there is a significant amount of experimentation required for a single stage of development. In an ideal circumstance, theory and modeling of the.......[Read More]
Just What Might Be Lurking in the Dust at Work, School or Home?
Advanced MicroAnalytical offers particle and Particulate Micro-Analysis (PMA) testing and consulting services to identify the composition of dusts and residues.
Salem, NH, January 17th, 2019 The buildup of dust or residues is an age-old problem that isn’t isolated to any one locale or type of environment. Any indoor environment, from private homes, large multi-tenant buildings and schools, right up to immense industrial complexes, will likely find some dust or debris building up at some point. Frequently, this dust is just a result of people living in an enclosed space, creating dust from themselves and from their surroundings and actions. However, there are times when this dust or residues.......[Read More]
Material Analysis through Non-Destructive Testing Services Provides Options to Industry
Advanced MicroAnalytical offers answers to complex material challenges involving everything from non-destructive physical analysis to the identification of unknown materials, product viability and quality control testing.
Salem, NH, January 14th, 2019 In countless different industries there are times when performing material analysis requires the highest amount of sensitivity, and all other considerations are irrelevant. While a complete breakdown of a device or sample can give the most information in some circumstances, there are other times when reducing the sample to its component atoms isn’t a viable option. All too frequently, product failures may only be present due to an interaction between components, but often it simply isn’t acceptable.......[Read More]
