Data Review & Quality Control Analyses
Ensuring the accuracy and precision of every result we report to a client is our highest priority. Our data review process is exhaustive and includes, at minimum, a review by an analyst, quality assurance, and two project managers. In a typical analytical batch, we perform numerous quality control analyses at a frequency few other laboratories attempt to approach. We also frequently perform duplicate analyses of clients’ samples.
