Materialytics Presents Conflict Mineral Results at GAC

Materialytics proudly presented our results on conflict mineral mine identification at the Geological Association of Canada's annual conference. The study included gold, coltan (columbite-tantalite), wolframite, and cassiterite. Using the Materialytics Analysis Process, we were able to achieve incredible results.

Is this part Counterfeit?

If one of your customers brings you a defective part that looks like one your company made, how quickly can you determine if the part in question is really one of yours, or is a counterfeit? The answer may be as quickly as running a Materialytics Sequencing Station (M2S®) validation test on the part. The M2S validation test compares the part in question to a statistically significant..

Understanding the Science (Overview)

This series is intended to provide helpful insights into Materialytics Sequencing Station (M2S). Beginning in 2002, we wanted to determine if it was possible to trace a gemstone back to its host country (“determine its provenance”) and ideally to its host mine. What we learned has significantly changed our approach to this and related questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can M2S® be used in industry?
By the time a manufactured product is ready to leave the factory, it has undergone a number of expensive steps and repeated inspections. Significant expenditure can be avoided if problems are detected early, rather than late in manufacturing. M2S can help by detecting anomalies in raw or partially processed materials very early in the manufacturing process. In some cases, we expect it to detect substandard or counterfeit components that are being assembled into products. Each application of M2S will require a well-designed program to establish baseline for reference, so that test results are meaningful. The ROI may be very attractive.
