Analytics at Fraunhofer ISC:
we do see more than others

The Center for Applied Analytics ZAA at the Fraunhofer ISC offers its customers and project partners a comprehensive portfolio of analytical and test procedures as well as unique preparation methods.

In addition to many standard test methods, our portfolio also includes rare test procedures, development and construction of test and inspection methods. In combination with well-founded material expertise from various fields, test results are precisely interpreted - and, if desired, tailor-made solutions are offered. 

Well equipped to meet the requirements of research and development, we also offer our partners from industry and commerce the optimisation of production processes and accompanying quality assurance.



You can expect:

  • very broad interdisciplinary analysis portfolio -> many possible combinations to quickly find correct statements, especially in the event of damage
  • artefact-free sample preparation -> uniquely sharp insights into various materials and any material combinations (including concrete, biological material, wood, adhesives, metal) without destroying the sample
  • high-quality interpretation of the results from inorganics to cell therapy, if necessary by experienced material scientists from the Fraunhofer ISC

Our diversified portfolio


Battery and Cell Testing

Modern laboratory and pilot plant rooms with extensive equipment enable complex, detailed screening and evaluation processes.



In the field of bioanalytics, Fraunhofer ISC also offers extensive expertise in imaging/microscopy and chemical analysis in addition to tissue and cell analysis.


Coating and Surface Analysis

Extensive portfolio of techniques for
characterization of coatings and surfaces
(glass, ceramics, metals or (hybrid) polymers).


Process Analysis

Optimization and control of manufacturing processes. For example: thermo-optical measurement methods.


Failure Analysis

In addition to meaningful analysis results and measurement data, technically sound evaluations and interpretations (including proposed solutions if necessary) are provided with regard to material and process


Thermal Analysis

Specialized in the development of
scientific research facilities and their
analyses. Both in the characterization
of new materials and in quality control
within the production process.


Environmental Analysis

This is about climatic conditions and
environmental influences on humans,
buildings and products.


Materials Analysis /
Materials Testing

Material characterization according to chemical and physical properties, analysis of glasses, glass ceramics, ceramics as well as damage analysis and much more.
