"With our Houston laboratory receiving TCEQ NELAP accreditation, EMLab P&K continues to demonstrate it is among the very best analytical laboratories in the nation, including water testing. The recognition shows that the analytical data produced from any of our water testing laboratories is always of the highest quality. Because major health and financial decisions are made based on the laboratory results and on the laboratory’s quality system, we ensure that the data we produce and our QA system are of the highest quality. EMLab P&K’s TCEQ NELAP accreditation is a mark of this capability as a water testing laboratory," states Tim Costello, EMLab P&K’s Director of Quality Assurance.
