Spectrophotometer certification

Ceram, the international materials technology company has collaborated with CyberChrome to create a package which facilitates the monitoring and certification of spectrophotometers.

Ceram’s colour standards and CyberChrome’s OnColor instrument performance software enables the verification, monitoring, optimisation and certification of spectrophotometers, and hence assurance of accurate colour matches.

The combined Ceram-CyberChrome test provides documentation which can be used to validate the performance of spectrophotometers for colour compliance programmes and conformity with international standards. Each time a test is performed, a report is generated. Reports certify the performance of instruments and compare the results with baseline data to calculate colour differences. The colour differences are compared with pre-set tolerances and a pass/fail assessment is given for each Colour Standard, as well as an average for the entire set.

The package allows organisations to perform regular instrument checks in a wholly repeatable manner and produce meaningful QA reports to record a spectrophotometer’s performance over time.
