Commitment to Quality

Our laboratory personnel understand how critical quality control is to the overall success of a project. As a result, our Quality Assurance Department utilizes a sophisticated Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) to monitor the progress of a samples’ analysis throughout the laboratory process. Working with the Quality Assurance Department, our Sample Preparation Department ensures proper grain size in every step of the process. Our Quality Assurance Department also inserts blind replicate and duplicate samples into our laboratory stream and monitor the routine control charts of all  certified reference materials.
