Tax deduction

For our customers located in France, Probion Analysis is authorized in accordance with the French plan "Crédit Impôt Recherche" (CIR). Please see the French section for further details.

Samples

We consider all types of semiconducting, metallic or insulating solid sample. In order to obtain optimal analysis conditions, an ideal sample should preferably have:

However, we can develop specific processes to analyse a broad range of samples: rough metallic samples, sub-mm samples (200µm LED chips) ...

Unless otherwise stated, we will cut out any sample to the optimal size for analysis (typically 6-8mm). The maximum size supported for SIMS analysis is 24mm.

Analysis can also be performed on specific areas of patterned samples (typical width 50 to 300µm). In such cases, it can be necessary that several locations are available for analysis. This is especially important if different analysis conditions are required from a given area.

Results and delivery time

We process the raw analysis data and we provide the useful graphs and numerical data accompanied with an analysis report.

The standard delivery time is 5 working days from the samples receipt. In case of urgency, it can be reduced to 24 hours at your request.

We will be happy to respond any questions after the delivery of the results. Samples are sent back upon request only, the service is charged. If the samples return is not asked, samples are stored during one month at least, and then they may be destroyed without any notice.

Confidentiality

We guarantee complete confidentiality of results and information supplied. We will sign an NDA if required.
