Method Integrity

The choice of procedures and the validation of those procedures follow specific guidelines. ARC uses techniques for measurement and employs methodologies recommended by groups such as USEPA, USP, AOAC, NIST, OECD, CIPAC, and ASTM. Where standard methods are unavailable literature searches are instituted and methods are chosen based on sound scientific judgment. Where methods must be developed, in-house validation of the method occurs using accepted validation procedures.
