In-House Testing Facility
An in-house laboratory means a quick turn around for JRM’s clients receiving their results. JRM clients get a quick turnaround on testing results due to our in-house testing facility, laboratory with State of the Art Testing Equipment. Asbestos analysis of material samples will be performed by JRM in their in-house laboratory accredited under the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) using Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) – LAB CODE: 200080-0.
What is the benefit of an In-house lab?
- No Middlemen = Lower Cost for JRM Clients
- Quick Turnaround on Testing Results
- Qualified, Proficient Analysts
- Compliant with All Federal Government Guidelines
NVLAP accreditation system makes sure laboratories are compliant with Federal Government rules. This system continually assesses laboratories against all requirements. Analysts go through vigorous testing and bi-annual proficiency testing to verify laboratories are following strict guidelines.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) administers the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP). NVLAP provides accreditation services through various laboratory accreditation programs (LAPs), which are established on the basis of requests and demonstrated need. Each LAP includes specific test or calibration standards and related methods and protocols assembled to satisfy the unique needs for accreditation in a field of testing or calibration. NVLAP accredits public and private laboratories based on evaluation of their technical qualifications and competence to carry out specific calibrations or tests.
NVLAP provides an unbiased third-party evaluation and recognition of performance, as well as expert technical guidance to upgrade laboratory performance. NVLAP accreditation signifies that a laboratory has demonstrated that it operates in accordance with NVLAP management and technical requirements pertaining to quality systems; personnel; accommodation and environment; test and calibration methods; equipment; measurement tractability; sampling; handling of test and calibration items; and test and calibration reports. NVLAP accreditation does not imply any guarantee (certification) of laboratory performance or test/calibration data; it is solely a finding of laboratory competence. A laboratory may cite its accredited status and use the term NVLAP and symbol on reports, stationery, and in business and trade publications, provided that this use does not imply product certification.
