The staff at the Houston Laboratory is often asked to "referee" laboratory results when conflicting data are reported from two or more laboratories analyzing the same sample. Often we will reanalyze the sample and serve as an impartial source of analysis of the data in question.
In pursuit of our mission, our scientists must keep current on the latest developments in analytical methodology and techniques. This often means the quick adaptation of current "state of the art" techniques and instrumentation. At the Houston Laboratory, we strive to remain current on emerging methodologies and analytical techniques. Often this entails the adaptation of a method to current technologies for accommodation to ever increasing workloads.
