 Quality assurance is a special interest of our founder, Dr. Larry Pierce.  He has routinely seen the short-comings of other labs during on-site assessments on behalf of NVLAP for the past 20 years.  His thoughts and conclusions on quality assurance of accredited labs have been presented at national and local conferences .  He has participated in policy development for AIHA-LAP, LLC for more than 10 years, much of that as policy task force chair.  He has shepherded analytical standards development for ASTM International.
