Materials Science

Tap into our know-how and facilities (more than 35 analytical techniques) to address all your analytical needs. We combine extensive application knowledge with state-of-the-art analytics.

Whether you want to solve a problem fast or need long-term research support, we cover all your analytical challenges. Moreover, our specialists think with you, provide you with an interpretation of the found figures and support you to (re-) develop faster and better.


The Eurofins facility in Eindhoven, The Netherlands specializes in the materials analysis and reliability investigation of high tech materials and products. It also has specific expertise in the areas of:

  • Chemical analysis & physical inspection of materials and objects
  • Contamination control
    From validation of cleanliness for high technology manufacturing (cleanroom air, supply gasses and components) to root-cause analysis of surface contamination
  • Chemical compatibility
    Understanding of chemical incompatibility, testing and proper material selection design
  • Material reliability
    Resolving reliability issues, quality control support, failure analysis and corrosion testing
  • Glass characterization
    Composition, Optical properties, Refractive properties, Thermal properties, Glass forming / shaping, Glass faults, Glass joining and Particle size 
  • Analytical methodology
    Design of tests, experiments and data analysis

The Material Analysis lab was purchased by Eurofins EAG in December 2018 and was formerly the Materials Analysis lab of Royal Philips and Philips Lighting (now Signify).
