Involvement

Compliance with ISO-17025

All the teams rigorously apply the methodologies and protocols aiming at the reliability of the results and analyzes.

ATRON is part of an accreditation process in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025, which lays down general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories.
ATRON's quality system meets ISO 9001, based on CERAP's proven model, which meets the constraints of the nuclear industry (qualification of nuclear operators, CEFRI, OHSAS 18001 ...).
The compliance with of the requirements implies rigor in all the protocol applications, a scientific watch, a regulatory watch and an ability to adapt to the specific requirements of our customers.
The entire ATRON system, from beam calibration to measurement methods, ensures reliable R&D results and guarantees optimization of the industrial approach of our customers.

Publications

ATRON employees participate regularly in international seminars and conferences, sharing their analyzes and expertise.

This attachment to get involved in the animation of the scientific community translates into publications in specialized journals and presentations at international seminars and congresses.

ATRON patent

At the forefront of innovation, ATRON owns the patent which protects its process and device to test the proper operation of a radiation survey meter.

ATRON checks the calibration of radiation survey meters in a homogeneous field of X-rays with a broad energy spectrum. The industrial patent is at odds with the usual technologies with the use of an irradiator equipped with radioactive sources.
The CEA/LNHB has given its guarantee in the development of this new methodology and in the connection to the primary beam.
ATRON is assisted in the implementation of this innovative method by the CNRS/LPC Caen, laboratory specialized in nuclear measurement.
