Starna, pioneers in the development of Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) for spectroscopy, now offer the world’s most comprehensive range of materials for Instrument Qualification and performance evaluation from the Far-UV to Mid-IR. Manufactured and calibrated under strictly controlled conditions, these materials conform to all the relevant international standards and quality protocols. As the world leader in this technology, Starna has played a pivotal role in the development of CRMs for spectroscopy over fifty years, in close collaboration with national Metrological Institutes (NMI’s), international regulatory bodies and instrument manufacturers.

Tools for Easier Instrument Qualification and Compliance

  • The calibration of Starna Certified Reference Materials is traceable both to fundamental physical measurements and to international primary standards e. g. NIST, and accredited to ISO/IEC 17025; the universally recognised standard for laboratory accreditation.
  • Starna is accredited to ISO Guide 34 as a Reference Material Producer.
  • Instrument Qualification Kits, to assist in the easy qualification of UV-Visible Spectrophotometers, contain a selection of Starna Certified Reference Materials accepted by all the major Pharmacopoeias and standardisation bodies for checking photometric accuracy, wavelength calibration, stray light and instrument resolution/bandwidth.
  • References are available for
    • Ultraviolet and Visible spectrophotometry
    • NIR/MIR
    • Raman spectroscopy
    • Fluorescence
    • Plate readers
    • HPLC instrumentation
    • Specialised materials for bioscience
  • All liquid references are permanently sealed by heat fusion into their cells using a process developed by Starna, eliminating evaporation, improving stability and making handling safer.
  • A Certificate of Calibration and Traceability and full instructions for use are provided with each Reference Material. The certificate is supplied in electronic format, on a USB drive in the same box as the references, allowing hard copy to be produced on demand and giving easy interface to the user’s own IT systems.
  • All Starna CRM's carry a lifetime guarantee, provided they are used and stored correctly and recalibrated by Starna at intervals of not more than 2 years.
  • The Starna calibration laboratory can re-certify and despatch reference materials within five working days from receipt.
