We demand the best from ourselves in order to deliver the highest standards of accuracy, reliability and objectivity.
Over 20% of all analyses carried out at Indlab concerns monitoring and evaluation.
The results of our analyses help you on a day-to-day basis. They enable you to make informed commercial decisions which are of great importance to your company. We therefore subject our working practices to the control and supervision of higher organisms and institutions charged with monitoring the quality of our work through external audits and participation in collaborative analyses, during which our analytical precision is measured against other laboratories of national and international stature.
