A Key Factor in Choosing a Qualified Lab for Fatty Acid Analysis


In today’s competitive landscape, where industries demand accurate and reliable analytical results, ensuring the highest quality standards is paramount.

“I often juggle various contending priorities, including keeping up to date with the competitive market, updating internal processes, the professional development of our staff, and financial management. However, the most crucial to our lab is realizing that our work can influence critical decisions made by our customers and other users of our analytical results.” – Andrew Jenkins, Lab Director

These decisions can have far-reaching implications, impacting public health, product safety, and regulatory compliance. Businesses rely on our data to determine the safety and health benefits of their products. At the same time, consumers depend on businesses to deliver products that meet their expectations and adhere to strict regulatory requirements.

In this context, one pressing question remains: How can you be confident that the data you rely on is reliable as a decision-maker? How can you ensure that the lab you choose for fatty acid analysis is qualified and committed to excellence? The answer is Accreditation.
