Forward Spectral Flux Lamp Standards certified to NVLAP ISO 17205 guidelines
North Sutton, New Hampshire (May 16, 2012) – Labsphere, Inc. has earned accreditation as a NVLAP ISO 17025 calibration laboratory for calibrated Forward Spectral Flux Lamp Standards. Earlier this year, the company was also accredited as an NVLAP Lab 200951-0 for calibrated Spectral Flux Lamp Standards.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) governs the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP). Labsphere successfully completed rigorous on-site assessments and technical evaluations of its engineering, manufacturing, and calibration departments to gain accreditation.
Labsphere’s global reputation for stable, repeatable Forward Spectral Flux Lamp Standards is well established. Each NIST-traceable standard is carefully screened, seasoned and calibrated at its manufacturing facility under the guidelines recommended by the IESNA (Illuminating Engineering Society).
NVLAP accreditation signifies that Labsphere operates in accordance with stringent guidelines pertaining to quality systems, engineering expertise, technical personnel, test and calibration methods, laboratory equipment and environment, measurement traceability, handling of test and calibration items, and accuracy in test and calibration reports.
According to Labsphere Quality Director Richard Corbyn, “Being able to provide accredited forward flux lamps is critical to our customers’ requirements for accurate 2pi measurements; so we are certainly excited to add more products to the list of lamp standards produced at Labsphere which qualify under the NVLAP ISO 17025 accreditation program.”
