Advanced Device and Materials Testing Laboratory (ADMATEL) is a DOST national testing laboratory. It is established to reinforce and upgrade the failure analysis and materials testing facilities of our local industry, provide shorter turn-around time for analysis, at competitive cost of services, and to entice potential investors seeking for a more conducive business environment.
ADMATEL is located at the DOST Compound, Bicutan, Taguig City. It houses three (3) 100K cleanroom laboratories the Surface Analysis Laboratory, Thermal Analysis Laboratory and the Chemical and Metallurgical Laboratory, which can accommodate sophisticated scientific equipment.
ADMATEL started its commercial operation on January 8, 2013, followed by its inauguration in May 31, 2013 by His Excellency, President Benigno S. Aquino III. In 2014, ADMATEL’s application for PNS ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation to the Department of Trade and Industry - Philippine Accreditation Bureau (DTI-PAB) was successfully achieved. The initial assessment on ISO/IEC17025 was conducted on August 04 and 05, 2014. In the same year, ADMATEL submitted the completed Proficiency Test for Chemical and Metallurgical Lab. The laboratories that conform to this PNS ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accreditation have demonstrated their technical competency and able to produce precise and accurate test data. This gave opportunities for ADMATEL to accept laboratory tests and services in the ASEAN region.
ADMATEL offers advanced analytical services which are more affordable compared to similar laboratories in Asia, Europe and USA. This will greatly benefit the local companies since it provides shorter turn-around time of 24 hours on test results compared with a 5- to 6-day turn-around time when done outside the country, they do not need to send their sample materials and products abroad to gain access on sophisticated analytical tests and also for companies who cannot afford to put up their own FA and characterization laboratories. It also offers 20% discount for students who are conducting their thesis and research, and for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
