Process

We appreciate the trust you place in a testing partner, that’s why we emphasize quality in everything we do. We’ll implement the following measures to ensure you’re satisfied with our results.

  • Samples are handled with care and respect to ensure continuity from your lab to ours.
  • Validated and time-proven protocols are meticulously followed from sample receipt to report generation to ensure reproducibility.
  • All assays are prepared by highly experienced technicians using our own Quansys reagents so you can be confident in the results.
  • All samples are run in replicate and all results are thoroughly evaluated for reproducibility and reliability.
  • Results are obtained using highly sensitive validated kits and delivered to you in a detailed report.

Results

Complete results will be mailed, faxed, or emailed to the customer within ten business days of sample receipt. All results will be reported in a Microsoft Excel format and will include raw data, charts, and calculated concentrations derived from regression from each of the samples tested.
