About Us

Reliability, flexibility and trust. These three traits have remained our focus as we have developed and grown our business.

We were founded in 1982 to operate reference materials program for the U.S. EPA, and today, we continue to manufacture and certify reference materials, reagents and proficiency testing programs for applications ranging from classical water chemistry and microbiology to solid and hazardous waste analysis. We have added proficiency testing and certified reference materials for food science, cannabis, and pharmaceutical science.
