How measurements can contribute to improved healthcare?


In preparation for the call ‘Metrology for Health’ that is issued in the European Metrology Programma for Innovation and Research (EMPIR), VSL organized a workshop and networking meeting, which brought together more than 20 participants from medical industry, universities and academic hospitals.

Better flow measurement, safer patients


Vulnerable patients receiving drug infusions in intensive care or for palliative relief require low volume drug delivery over extended time periods.

Virtual standards, real advantages


Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is a powerful technique to measure surface characteristics on the nanometer scale. AFM is based on scanning a measurement probe over the surface under study while recording the interaction between the probe and surface.

First proficiency test on the siloxane content in biomethane


Siloxanes are silicon-containing volatile organic compounds which occur in biomethane and upgraded biogas. They are formed during the fermentation of organic matter, both in fermenters as well as in landfills. The maximum permissible levels in biomethane are regulated in EN 16723.



At the biennial Conference International de Metrology (CIM2017) (to be held in Paris 19-21 September). VSL representatives experts will report on the progress and results of the European Metrology for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Metrology for Biogas projects.

ESA Fibrelink contract


VSL BV together with CGI Nederland BV have won a contract as part of the European GNSS Evolutions Programme (EGEP) and funded by the European Space Agency, to support ESA with the definition of the Galileo 2nd Generation (G2G).

14th Theme Day Gas Analysis


Sensors are the antennae of the digital world. They have been used for years in all kinds of applications for the observation of e.g. temperature, light and movement. Because of ongoing innovations, sensors become more and more affordable and can be used for various purposes.
