Analytical Testing Services

Analytical testing is often a necessary part of the research and development process for a product or component. At Cross, we’re able to provide a wide range of testing procedures, including chemical composition analysis, color analysis, X-Ray or CT scanning, cross-sectioning, and microscopy. We’re also capable of combining many of these tests with other analytical testing procedures as well as a variety of other environmental, functional, and durability tests.

We perform analytical testing services for many customers across industries. And with our help, those customers are able to find both causes and solutions to production and chemical issues that are arising in the product development process.

Have you noticed cracks forming on your product due to environmental changes? Or discoloration where there shouldn’t be? Or unexpected breakage without any discernible cause? These are all questions that the analytical testing experts at Cross Testing can work with you to answer. Our ISO 17025 accredited testing labs can provide you with the answers you need to ensure quality development, smooth production, and satisfied end users.

Cross Analytical Testing Services

When it comes to analytical testing procedures and solutions, often one service isn’t enough. That’s why we offer a spectrum of analytical material testing services. Furthermore, all of these services can be combined with our other testing procedures, including environmental testing, functional testing, mechanical testing, electrical testing, and many others.

Working with Cross is a commitment to the success of your product. Our thorough and comprehensive testing offering can provide you with the procedures your product needs to ensure compliance, integrity, and customer satisfaction.

Take a look at our other analytical testing services. If you see the service you need, we want to hear about it. Even if you don’t see the service you need here, we still want to hear about it. Our ability to custom-design testing procedures is one of the reasons so many companies choose to partner with us. And we know it will benefit your operation, too.

Chemical composition testing services is a broad term. But essentially, it involves combining analytical methods to gain a better understanding of the chemical structures and compositions of a testing sample, including individual components and impurities.

Color analysis testing services are performed for many reasons. Whether it’s to develop a unique color for a gloss or to conform to color standards for matching parts, Cross has the expertise and equipment to perform comprehensive color analysis testing.

Cross-section Microscopy (CSM) testing allows us to example a sample from a layered structure at a microscopic level. It lets us see a full cross-section of the sample, which can be valuable insight into how glosses and finishes interact (as well as many other applications).

X-Ray and computed tomography testing (CT testing) are necessary nondestructive testing services for many industries. These tests allow us to see inside a part without having to disassemble the part itself.

What Is Analytical Testing?

Analytical testing (or materials testing) is a wide-reaching term that encompasses many different techniques used to identify chemical structures or physical properties of a sample. These testing procedures provide valuable insight for many industries and can potentially stop problems before they spread or prevent them all together. Materials testing can be used for failure analysis, contaminant identification, quality assurance, and other steps in the development process.

Analytical laboratory services provide these chemical, analytical, and materials testing procedures. They can be used to validate sample analysis for concentration confirmation, product purity and homogeneity, and sample stability.

The demand for analytical testing services is increasing over many industries. These include biotechnology, pharma, environmental, food and beverage, and many others. If you’re underutilizing (or not utilizing) analytical materials testing, Cross can help. Contact our experts and we’ll work with you to devise an analytical testing procedure that works for you and your product.

Accurate Analytical Testing Methods

When it comes to analytical testing procedures, high-quality equipment is a necessity. Performing precise measurements with accurate data capture and logging methods is critical to the analytical testing process. And these are things that the Cross Testing Lab is proud to offer.

With our analytical testing equipment, we’re able to provide actionable data to our customers. This allows them to make the right decisions when it comes time for production. In turn, this leads to a smoother research & development process, less problems down the road, greater competitor analysis, and higher end user trust.

Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are 100% employee-owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet of paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company has grown significantly since our start in 1954. Over the years we've acquired 26 companies! Today, our five groups have expertise in everything from industrial automation to precision measurement, and industry knowledge going all the way back to 1939.
