Instrumentation

All Laboratory instrumentation is maintained under Service contracts with the instrument purveyors and independent contractors. As prescribed by GLP and NELAC, instrumentation is inventoried yearly.  As a policy, most instrumentation is updated every eight to ten years or as needed. Listed below is the type of instrumentation routinely used by the laboratory.
