Company Profile


Oneida Recherche Services is an independent Testing Laboratory founded in 1994 as the result of a Technology Transfer from ORS USA to serve the European market. Over the years, ORS has developed a recognized expertise in the area of Low Molecular Weight Gas Analysis by Mass Spectrometry

Overview of Analytical Services :

  • Internal Vapor Analysis (IVA™) of hermetic packages, bags, vials and process gases provide the user a means to monitor and control the internal moisture and gas composition of high reliability devices from Research & Development to Production. It is also a valuable tool in Failure Analysis investigations. ORS test method extends the scope and capability of Residual Gas Analysis (RGA) as described in MIL-STD 883, Method 1018 'Internal Gas Analysis'. ORS is certified by the DLA Land and Marine (formerly DSCC - Defense Supply Center Colombus) to perform MIL-STD 883, Method 1018 on US Military devices.
  • Hermeticity testing, also known as Fine and Gross Leak testing, detects and measures the leak rates (atm cc/sec He or other gas) of hermetically sealed packages. Specialized hermeticity techniques may also be used to locate the leak site and investigate its origin.
  • Material Outgassing Characterization testing is a powerful technique used for the identification and quantitation of outgassed organic compounds evolved from a wide range of materials and sealed packages.

Historically, IVA™ (also referred to as RGA) analysis has been used by the Defense, Military and Aerospace industries to improve the reliability of hermetically sealed microelectronic devices. Since then the scope of the technique has widened and it is now largely accepted by the Telecommunication, Optoelectronic, Frequency, Medical and Lighting industries.


ORS facility in Sophia Antipolis - France

ORS was set-up with Quality Assurance in mind. The Quality Policy provides a basis for continually improving ORS operations towards a better and more reliable analytical service that meets or exceeds customer's requirements. The IVA Commercial Test Method was developed with the same guideline (more rigorous and demanding requirements).

The ORS facility is located in the south-east of France in the high-tech center of Sophia Antipolis which is 20 minutes from the international Airport of Nice Côte d'Azur.
