Recommended Independent Labs
Below is a listing of independent laboratories available to participate in the AOAC evaluation of methods submitted to the AOAC Performance Tested MethodsSM
program. These laboratories have met the minimum requirements to conduct AOAC validation studies for the program. The laboratories are selected using approved criteria and successful review information supporting the expertise and experience of the laboratory.
Independent laboratories are contracted by the AOAC Research Institute to conduct an independent third party evaluation of submitted methods. This process of working with independent laboratories is facilitated by AOAC Research Institute.
AOAC INTERNATIONAL or AOAC Research Institute does not accredit laboratories. Furthermore, becoming a listed independent laboratory does not guarantee validation projects. Laboratories participate in a bidding process with the selection of the laboratory being determined by the AOAC Research Institute.
