Your All-Inclusive Analytical Testing Partner
We offer a full line of in-house analytical testing services supporting multiple industries. We train our service reps and team members to listen to you and give you a full and complete solution. Good for us, right? What separates a good lab from a great lab? It’s the ability to get the job done for you regardless of the test, program, timing, location, or other parameters. We have taken the time to build meaningful partnerships and have negotiated the best prices with over 50 other labs around the world so, when our clients need a unique test, we have either an in-house lab or a partner for that. You deal with one lab, one service rep – which means one chain of custody form, one point of contact, one invoice with no headaches. That’s full-service the Silver State way.
Independent and Certified Testing Labs
Independent because your customers and the public insist on no conflicts of interest. Certified because you need meaningful third party accreditation that the number is the number. We operate multiple labs because you like local service, redundancy and reliability of methods and equipment, risk reduction, geographic coverage and depth of capabilities.
We are certified by the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP), NV00930 (Las Vegas) and NV00015 (Reno). In addition, we are fully certified by California ELAP, CA-3029 (Las Vegas), CA-2990 (Reno) and CA-2119 (Sacramento). We are also CDC ELITE certified for legionella. And approved by many county and state health departments. Lastly, we maintain a rare Clark County, NV Building Department soil chemistry test certificate. The takeaway? We’ve got you covered! And oh yeah, if you want certified SAME DAY soil testing…we can do that too!
