Metal Detection and X-Ray Inspection System Test Standards

Metal Detection and X-Ray Inspection System Certification and Your HACCP/GMP Compliance Program

HACCP and GMP compliance in the food and pharmaceutical industry requires that metal detection and/or x-ray inspection systems be installed at critical control points and are routinely QA (quality assurance) validated with the results documented. Paramount to this is using FDA compliant, independently certified, and traceable test samples.

Why Use Our Pharmaceutical & Food Inspection System Testing Products?

Why not use the same quality precision metal detector and x-ray inspection system test standards that are used by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) for their validation of hazard detection systems used in the food and pharmaceutical processing industries?

Now the same highly visible, tamper-proof, and completely sealed metal detector and x-ray inspection system validation products used by the USDA FSIS are available from Test Standard Labs LLC. We are a USA manufacturer and supplier of independently certified test pieces (including test cards, test sticks, test rods, test balls, test fobs, test tablets, and test disks) used in the calibration, testing, and validation of metal detectors and x-ray inspection systems used in the food and pharmaceutical processing industries. Metal detector and x-ray inspection system test samples available from our company are the highest quality for testing and calibration used in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Our product pricing is comparable to what you are paying now for test pieces with probably less quality.

Your quality assurance team can be assured by using Test Standard Labs' metal detector and x-ray inspection system test pieces, independently certificated, and traceable, that it will be fulfilling your company's commitment to quality assurance and due diligence.

The Beneifits of Using Our Pharmaceutical & Food Inspection System Testing Products...

  • All materials used in the manufacture of our metal detector and x-ray inspection system test pieces are FDA compliant and are cleared for contact with food products. Our test samples meet FDA regulations 21 CFR 177.2470, 21 CFR 177.3297 and 21 CFR 175.105 Copies of material data sheets are available here online or by request.
  • All of the precision miniature balls used in our metal detector and x-ray inspection system test pieces are AMBA, AFBMA, or ISO 3290 standards and tolerances certified. A certification of compliance number is labeled on all of our test samples and certificates of compliance are available free of charge. You can view and print the Certificate of Compliance here online at any time.
  • Miniature ball sample is completely sealed inside of all our tamper-proof pharmaceutical and food inspection system test samples. Our testing and validation products are designed and manufactured for ease of maintaining cleaniness and sanititation.
  • For ease of identification all of our pharmaceutical and food inspection system test pieces are clearly labeled and color-coded to the type of sample that is enclosed.
  • All of our products can be used to test and validate both metal detection and x-ray inspection systems. We offer test pieces in varying material types and sizes to meet your HACCP and GMP validation program needs.
  • You can be assured of independently validated metal detector and x-ray inspection system test pieces since our company's only hazard detection and product inspection systems used in your food or pharmaceutical plant is required for your QA (quality assurance) program.
