LGC Standards announced that ULTRA Scientific, one of its key suppliers, has gained ISO Guide 34 accreditation for the production of organic and inorganic certified reference materials (CRMs). ISO Guide 34 requires an extensive protocol for homogeneity, short term stability, long term stability, quality control and statistical analysis.
Jane Firth, Sector Manager for Food and Environmental Reference Materials, LGC Standards, is positive about this achievement: “Our customers have long relied on standards from ULTRA Scientific with the expectation that they are of the high quality required. All laboratories strive to ensure the standards they use are sourced from a competent provider, and for laboratories with ISO 17025 accreditation, this is a requirement. ULTRA’s ISO Guide 34 accreditation provides laboratories with that assurance.”
