We are pleased to welcome Lipid Analytical Inc. as a newly SCC-accredited laboratory under our accreditation program for testing and calibration laboratories.
Lipid Analytical Inc. provides highly specialized analytical and research services to academic and commercial operations. In their fully equipped facility with advanced technologies and chromatographic systems, it tests and analyzes various lipids and fatty acid components in biological materials such as animal and vegetable oils and milk. The testing of lipids has become even more relevant as the agri-food industry moves towards the development of more nutritious, enriched foods and specialized health products with modified fatty acid profiles.
SCC accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025 for testing and calibration laboratories will help Lipid Analytical provide internationally accepted testing and measurement results for their customers, increasing global opportunities and reducing the need for repeat testing.
“At Lipid Analytical Laboratories, we value the principles of quality and continual improvement that are at the core of ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation. Achieving this globally-recognized accreditation from the Standards Council of Canada is one more step in demonstrating our commitment to maintaining the highest accuracy of results and quality services for our customers.”
