QUALITY & ACCREDITATION
ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation demonstrates that Alkemist Labs meets managerial and technical quality benchmarks as required by the International Organization of Standards ISO/IEC 17025 General requirements for the competence oftesting and calibration laboratories for the tests performed within our scope. Accreditation involves an ongoing, thorough assessment of our quality management system and competence to perform the tests as listed in the accreditation scope. It means that we have been scrutinized by a highly qualified external organization and found to meet internationally agreed upon requirements for testing laboratories.
Our accreditation scope includes the test types/technologies of Dietary Supplement Identification and Qualitative Analysis HPTLC and Botanical Identification and Qualitative Analysis by Microscopy. This scope meets the A2LA P112 Flexible Scope Policy, which requires an added depth of technical competence and experience as well as appropriate quality management systems. A flexible scope allows for method adjustments needed per changes in the sample matrix, components and analytes.
In addition, Alkemist Labs has also met the more specific requirements of AOAC Analytical Laboratory Accreditation Criteria Committee (ALACC) Guidelines for Laboratories Performing Microbiological and Chemical Analyses of Food, Dietary Supplements, and Pharmaceuticals. Accreditation to this guidance demonstrates that Alkemist Labs has technical expertise and quality systems specific to the dietary supplement, food and pharmaceutical industries which go above and beyond those of ISO/IEC 17025.
