Fiber analysis is used in verifying advertisement integrity, production conformity, 

Fiber analysis and fiber species identification are used by many industries including not only the pulp and paper industry, but also by the non-wovens, food, and pharmaceutical industries.

We offer digital photo microscopy in conjunction with fiber analysis, and FTIR spectroscopy to provide a detailed and complete assessment of defect, contaminants, and the identification of unknowns .  

We also provide a unique refining evaluation of fibers by utilizing phase contrast microscopy. This service illustrates the degree of refining with microphotographs, comments and ratings.

Our fiber analysis services provide fiber species percent, pulping type percent, percent hardwood and percent softwood, and recycled content evaluation.
