We are pleased to announce that we have added a complete range of physical reference materials to our product portfolio through our recent acquisition of Paragon Scientific. The Paragon portfolio compliments the elemental analysis products we currently offer under our VHG, ARMI and MBH Industrial sector brands and provides a more complete offering to our customers.
Paragon Scientific was founded in 1994 in the UK, originally to support the physical testing needs of the petrochemical industry. The company has expanded its product line to support the general purpose physical testing needs of a wide range of market applications.
The Paragon range of physical reference materials covers an expansive single and multi-component ISO 17034 accredited certified reference material portfolio. While ideal for supporting petrochemical testing and fuel analysis laboratories, the product range also includes general purpose physical reference materials for measuring density, refractive index and viscosity.
