What are the Performance Test Results?

DiamondDect 5 was tested in accordance with the Diamond Verification Instrument Standard with the test protocol for instruments that separate diamonds from synthetic diamonds (Operation Category 1).


The tests took place at the independent laboratory UL in Canton, Massachusetts, United States.


DiamondDect 5 was tested with the ASSURE Core Sample that consists of 1,000 diamonds and 200 synthetic diamonds. The stones are 0.02 ct to 0.20 ct in D-J colour. The below results are from the test with the ASSURE Core Sample. Please note that DiamondDect 5 can only process HPHT synthetic diamonds, however, the instrument has still been tested on the ASSURE Core Sample which includes CVD synthetic diamonds as well.


The tests were performed by a novice operator.

Diamond False Positive Rate Ratio of synthetic diamonds incorrectly classified as 'diamond' to the total number of synthetic diamonds 22.6%
Diamond Referral Rate Ratio of diamonds being referred for further testing to the total number of diamonds 8.4%
Diamond Accuracy Ratio of diamonds correctly classified as diamonds to the total number of diamonds 91.6%
Speed Stones tested per hour 557
Synthetic Diamond False Positive Rate Ratio of diamonds incorrectly classified as 'synthetic diamond' to the total number of diamonds 0%
