Metal Detector and X-Ray Inspection System Test Standards

Metal Detector and X-Ray Inspection System Test Standards Certification and Your HACCP/GMP Compliance Program

HACCP and GMP compliance may require that metal detectors and/or x-ray inspection systems be installed at critical control points and are routinely QA (quality assurance) tested with the results documented. Paramount to this is using independently certified and traceable test samples. Most likely at present you are using metal detector and x-ray inspection system test pieces supplied by your metal detector and x-ray inspection system manufacturer, sales, or repair organization that are non-certified and untraceable.

Metal Detector and X-Ray Inspection System Test Standards

Why not use the same quality precision metal detector and x-ray inspection system test standards that are used by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) for their independent testing of metal detectors and x-ray inspection systems?

Now the same highly visible, tamper-proof, and completely sealed metal detector and x-ray inspection system testing products used by the USDA FSIS are available for sale by Test Standard Labs. Test Standard Labs is a producer and supplier of independently certified test pieces (including test cards, test sticks, test rods, test balls, test fobs, test tablets, and test disks) used in the calibration, testing, and validation of metal detectors and x-ray inspection systems. Metal detector and x-ray inspection test samples available from Test Standard Labs are the highest quality for testing and calibration used in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Our product pricing is comparable to what you are paying now for test pieces with probably less quality.

Your quality assurance team can be assured by using Test Standard Labs' metal detector and x-ray inspection system test pieces, independently certificated, and traceable, that it will be fulfilling your company's commitment to quality assurance and due diligence.
