Microanalytical Lab Service & Instrumentation
Have you heard the term microanalytical lab? Does your company require the services of a microanalytical lab?
Microanalysis is the chemical identification and quantitative analysis of minute quantities of material. A microanalytical lab specializes in this chemical identification process and quantitative analysis.
Some microanalytical labs may focus on a particular industry or particular test methods. Others are broad ranging labs covering a wide ran
ge of industries, testing a variety of sample materials with a variety of test methods.
When choosing a microanalytical lab, there are several factors to consider:
Does the microanalytical lab have a commitment to customer service? Are you able to contact any member of the technical team to ask questions or clarify details as necessary? Are you provided with references from other clients if requested Will they allow you to talk to their existing clients to get a reference? Also, find out the hours the lab is staffed so that you can get an idea of how quickly they will be able to turn around any rush requests you may have.
For proper microanalytical testing, any lab must have access to the most up to date equipment and test methods. Make sure you go on a tour of the testing facilities before choosing your test provider. During your tour, assess whether safety is a priority and if the environment is clean.
It is critical that the microanalytical lab have credentials for the type of testing that you require. For your standard and non-standard testing needs
learn what laboratory credentials are necessary to
ensure that your potential lab has current credentials. In addition, ask about their quality assurance programs and talk to staff in that area to get a sense of the importance they place on quality assurance.
Other Important Considerations
Ask the test facility how long they have been in business and find out if they can handle large, last minute requests. Question how much notice is needed to begin testing and get a sense if they would be able to handle your testing requirements and workload.
