NEW YORK, June 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- FireflySci, Inc. has come up with an explosive technological breakthrough in the spectrophotometer calibration industry. This new technology completely neutralizes all past issues that plagued researchers in the past when working with calibration standards.
For about three decades, scientists have had the nasty burden of recalibrating their calibration standards. This involved sending the standards back to the manufacturer, waiting up to two months for the recalibration and paying through the nose for this slow, inconvenient service.
This system for recalibration is still in use today so researchers are still faced with the nightmarish challenges stated above. Luckily, there is hope for these helpless people.
The engineers put their heads together to work on a long-term solution to this problem. What they discovered is that there is a way to apply a special coating to the glass substrates that will lock in their calibration properties forever. They call this process Nano-Deposition Technology and now people can buy NIST calibration standards that never need re-calibration.
FireflySci's calibration line has standards that can calibrate for photometric and wavelength accuracy. Simcha Woitovich, calibration engineer at FireflySci, predicts that their FUV-0.5 metal-on-quartz filter will be a game changer for many labs. The FUV-0.5 filter offers an expansive transmission range covering from 200-700 nm. This NIST traceable spectrophotometer calibration filter covers both the UV and Visible range, plus it never needs re-calibration.
FireflySci is proud to be the only company in the world to offer their customers this amazing benefit. Besides never requiring recalibration, FireflySci backs all their NIST certified calibration standards with a Lifetime Warranty.
There have been many critics about this new technology. Old school spectrophotometer calibration companies have lashed out at FireflySci for making this public. These companies have been making large-scale profits on the yearly re-calibrations fees and now these profits will come to a halt.
For people who are skeptics, FireflySci has an ongoing collaboration with a world leading calibration lab. Since the birth of this technology in 2007, FireflySci has had a set of their standards kept at this lab and periodically they are fully scanned and tested with no shifts of data in over seven years.
If a scientist does not know if he is ready to make the change to FireflySci's Nano-Deposition filters, they offer a free two week trial of any spectrophotometer calibration standard. This trial is absolutely free and FFS even pays the shipping costs both ways.
Simcha Woitovich and Gordon Cinco, the founders of FFS, have made it their goal to help all labs upgrade their calibration standards now so they can start saving their time and money.
