OUR HISTORY

• 1974: K&S Associates, Inc. is founded by Bob King and Tom Slowey

 

• 1978:  Bob King sold his interest in K&S to Tom Slowey.

• During that same year the Diagnostic X-ray Dosimeter Calibrations are expanded to included diagnostic beams (3 phase, 12 pulse) at diagnostic rates (0.5 to 5 R/s) and extended to mammography with both W/Al and Mo/Mo beams. Noninvasive kVp meter calibrations for both mammography and general radiography were also added.

 

• 2001:  The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) accredits the K&S ADCL.
