Our Services

Our Microfilming services include:

  • Preparation of the material for filming- Quality Control “QC” checks to ensure completeness and target preparation.
  • Preservation Microfilming on 35mm Silver Halide Master film.
  • Comprehensive frame-by-frame QC of the completed Master film.
  • Silver halide duplicating creating Duplicate Negatives and Copy Positives.
  • All generations of films that we create are inspected to ensure that ISO Standards are met.


  • Deep Tank Processing using Agfa Chemicals.
  • Daily chemistry tests to check for Specific Gravity, Acidity, Density and Contrast.
  • Weekly in-house tests for residual thiosulfate.
  • Monthly Methylene Blue tests to detect residual thiosulfate done by an independent Laboratory.


This is the process of Duplicating existing Microfilm.  We have an extensive collection of titles that you can purchase on Silver Halide film.  If you have a collection where the user copies are damaged or lost, we can create new copies from the Master or Negative Intermediate where they exist and rights permit.

Master film Storage

Best Practice in Record management suggests that copies be stored in different locations, this ensures that in the event of a disaster you will have a copy that should survive.

We can offer the storage of your Master or Duplicate films.
