SGS LabTox has been regularly audited by the SAS since 2009 to ensure the continuance of qualitative excellence.
An interlaboratory comparison (inter-laboratory tests) consists of performing analyzes on samples similar and to compare the results with the reference values established by the organizer of the trial. These samples are sent to all participants by the organizer.
The participation in interlaboratory tests allows to situate the performances of each laboratory compared to those of the participants. It is an effective way to evaluate the quality of their results and their competence in their fields of activity.
SGS LabTox participates every year in inter-laboratory tests to reinforce its know-how and the level of confidence in the results.
