Testing
process

When your material arrives at our test center, it is assigned a unique QR code, which is scanned to confirm
the arrival of the material. The QR code is also used to automatically send notifications to you during the testing process to keep you updated.

We then send out a contract containing the price, delivery time, service level, and what is included in the test for approval. Once the contract is approved, we start the test according to the agreed-upon time. We are flexible, and you can order additional services at any time after the test has started, such as extra evaluation, pictures, preliminary results, or express delivery of the report. If you have any questions, feel free to contact your personal testing engineer.
