Metrology-Grade Reference Materials and Calibration Standards
For decades NIST (www.nist.gov/srm) was the global benchmark authority for spectrophotometry calibration standards. However, starting around 2005 NIST gradually ceased manufacturing a majority of the spectrophotometry calibration standards they developed in the past. NIST has dedicated virtually all their workforce towards developing chemical standards for RNA/DNA research. Therefore, several years ago NRC Canada (www.nrc.gc.ca) supported the initiative of RMCS Canada (www.RMCSCanada.com) of developing and producing certain "NIST-level and beyond" spectrophotometry calibration standards towards offering them to customers world-wide. Note: NRC Canada does not endorse any products or services of RMCS Canada.
RMCS Canada successfully developed unique wide-band UV-VIS-NIR photometric and wavelength calibration standards, while utilizing calibration capabilities of NRC Canada Photometry and Radiometry under the corresponding formal agreement between said above parties. RMCS Canada is proud to announce that for the first time in the history of science of optical spectrophotometry it became possible to verify photometric performance of UV-VIS-NIR spectrophotometers at ANY wavelength and with ANY spectral bandwidth.
Note: RMCS Canada is not affiliated with NRC Canada and RMCS Canada does not endorse any products or services of NRC Canada.
Currently three products lines are available to RMCS Canada customers:
RMCS-M product line's Reference Calibration Standards entirely comply with and are traceable to corresponding NIST SRM calibration standards.
The RMCS-M also offers additional calibration standards which are not manufactured by NIST, while the quality of materials and calibration of these additional standards are fully compliant with NIST requirements for materials quality and calibration quality ISO 17025 and ISO Guide 34.
Pharmacopoeia calibration kits are comprised of calibration standards of the RMCS-M product line.
RMCS-E product line offers the same variety of Calibration Standards and Kits as RMCS-M product line. At the same time, calibration expanded uncertainties are on-average 50% better than those required by NIST.
Customers of this product line are primarily leading research organizations.
RMCS-P product line offers the unprecedented quality of Metrology-Grade Reference Materials and Calibration Standards exclusively developed by RMCS Canada for calibration on Primary spectrophotometers. Customers of this product line are primarily government organizations and laboratories (i.e. FDA, etc.).
