Materials Characterization Services - Your One Source for Materials Analysis


Materials Characterization Services is an analytical service broker, providing scientists and engineers with the exact analysis they need to solve their materials problem.


MAT-CS offers the widest variety of testing services through our network of partnering laboratories.  We also have collaborative agreements with instrument manufacturers allowing us to offer analysis that is not otherwise commercially available.  No matter what your analysis need, we can meet it. 


Don't know which technique to use?  With over 25 years of experience in materials analysis, we can help you determine the best technique, or combination of techniques to solve your problem. 


MAT-CS uses over 40 partnering laboratories to deliver services to its clients.  Some labs may steer you towards a less-than-optimal technique just because it's available in-house.  We will always chose the most applicable technique(s) to give you the answers you need.


We understand that the quality and accuracy of scientific results are imperative.  If results are questionable or don't make sense we will find a way to re-test or confirm the results using another technique. 


We can help you to design an experiment to get the most out of your analytical dollar, interpret results, or synthesize data from multiple techniques.  While data from an analysis is important, what's equally important is how it related to your product or problem.
