Laser output testing for retinal thermal and photochemical hazards from Lasermet

28 Jul 2009

Lasermet’s new laboratories are the only facilities in the UK (other than NPL) to be accredited by UKAS for the testing of laser and LED products,including testing for hazards from long exposure times

The Lasermet team of expert testing and certification engineers is fully equipped to provide laser and LED manufacturers and scientists with a comprehensive, cost-effective certification service. The recognised fundamental standards governing the safety and classification of laser products in Europe and Internationally are the EN60825-1 and IEC60825-1 respectively. One of the requirements for compliance with these standards is to assess the potential damage hazards caused by longer exposure times. In the visible range it is necessary to calculate, separately, both the retinal photochemical hazard and the retinal thermal hazard. Lasermet have dedicated facilities for undertaking these more challenging hazard measurements, in addition to all the other tests required by the standards.
