Accreditation ensures that the lab has the technical competence, impartiality, and integrity to perform the tests according to the relevant methods and protocols.
• Check their experience: Experience is another indicator of the reliability and quality of a laboratory. You can check their experience by looking at their portfolio of clients, projects, and testimonials.

It will help if you are looking for a testing service partner with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment suitable for your product category and industry.
