FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 24, 2012, Columbus Ohio - GFS Chemicals, Inc. Achieves A2LA Accreditation for

UV/Vis Testing Materials

 

The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) has accredited GFS Chemicals to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 for the testing of its’ In-Spec® line of UV/Vis spectrophotometer standards.  A2LA is dedicated to the formal recognition of competent testing and calibration laboratories, inspection bodies, proficiency testing providers, reference material producers and product certification bodies.

GFS Chemicals Quality Manager Josh Crow says, “The A2LA accreditation experience has been valuable for the company. Customers benefit from a greater level of confidence in our results because of the implementation of standardized and traceable testing processes. The A2LA assessment validates and audits our technical competency for the In-Spec® product line.”

The In-Spec® product line makes UV/visible spectrophotometer validation accessible and easy for everyone.  The range of non-toxic, NIST traceable, materials includes photometric accuracy reference standards, wavelength accuracy filters, and stray light filters.  In-Spec® standards can be used as both a quality control check and to verify the operating procedure practiced by laboratory staff.  This allows the lab to ensure the data collected by the UV/Vis spectrophotometer is reliable.

GFS Analytical General Manager Harry Ruska says, “Through continuous improvement initiatives, the organization is experiencing improvements in overall quality. We expect to achieve A2LA accreditation for our water analysis division and areas of our analytical division in 2013.”

 A2LA is a private, non-profit membership association, established in 1978. A2LA’s primary mission is to provide comprehensive accreditation programs.  A2LA also offers programs for accreditation of testing and calibration laboratories, inspection bodies, proficiency testing providers, reference material producers and product certification bodies.
