Subject Matter Experts

From our core business of providing scientific solutions to our clients, we have developed innovative products. Some are produced internally, and some have arisen from partnerships with other research organizations. 

For example, we build lab software solutions to help manage and streamline your labs data, and environmental testing products for a variety of applications. 

  • IntelliSEM is a powerful automated particle analysis system.
  • ParticleID is  a customizable cloud hosted web application used to identify foreign particulate matter and  assist with root cause investigations. 

Other products we create count particles and help keep the air and environment safe.

RJ Lee Group is a materials analysis laboratory and consulting company which serves many different industries. We offer scientific solutions such as industrial forensics services, laboratory and testing services, litigation support, and laboratory software to many industries:

Metals & Alloys

Metallurgical Analysis Laboratory

Data you can rely on, experts you can trust.

Our metallurgical analysis laboratory augments the technical capabilities of many of our clients, providing a critical problem-solving resource. Our diverse capabilities include wide-ranging projects such as root cause failure analysis, evaluations of the effect of melt practice on finished products, characterization of coatings and surface treatments, examination of nanoscopic thin films, or the analysis of melt shop waste streams for recoverables. Many of our instruments are networked, which provides opportunity for our clients to virtually witness their analyses in many cases.
