The quality and accuracy of the tests conducted is of utmost importance to us.
To ensure accuracy in everything that we do, LiveLab has a strong internal quality system. At the heart of this system is our commitment to the internationally recognised standard for competence – ISO 17025. Working towards UKAS accreditation is very specific to particular sample matrices methodology. The existing accreditation we hold covers a range of chemical tests in the agricultural sector.
LiveLab also participates fully in a range of performance testing schemes as outlined in our accreditation page. To ensure utmost transparency in everything that we do, we publish our PT scheme membership numbers here as well in order that customers can openly check on our performance.
