We are an internationally leading expert group on the safety of lasers, LEDs and lamps and have been accredited as specialised test house for more than 20 years. Our know-how and (specially developed) equipment allows us to test complex sources efficiently, such as laser scanners, line lasers, range finders, as well as LEDs, ophthalmoscopes, IPLs and solar simulators. Besides our accreditation as test house we are also recognised as CBTL (CB-Testing Laboratory) in the IECEE CB-Scheme. Additionally to our testing services we can offer expert consulting services on the application of the standards and on characterisation of the risk for injury.
A unique combination of services and know-how distinguishes us as “one-stop-shop” for both testing as well as expert consulting:
- accredited test house for laser product safety (IEC 60825-1) (also under CB-Scheme)
- accredited test house for LED and lamp safety (also under CB-Scheme)
- in depth know-how of standards IEC 60825-1 and IEC 62471 through participation in development (info on standards work)
- in depth know-how of bio-effects through research projects and membership in bio-effects expert panels (the recent amendments of the international safety limits for lasers and lamps are to a large degree based on the results of our injury threshold studies)
We can demonstrate our expertise best with our over 100 publications, including text books. Many of them can be downloaded in our Downloads section.
