The management and staff of RTI Laboratories are dedicated to the effective implementation of our Quality Assurance Program policies and procedures. Our goal is to meet the highest data quality standards and conformance with NELAP, ISO 17025-2005 guidelines, U.S. Department of Defense QSM and various state-specific requirements.

By meeting these stringent standards, we are able to produce scientifically defensible data that meets the analytical methods and client-specified objectives. We accomplish these goals by consistently incorporating our Quality System into each laboratory process as an essential part of day-to-day operations.

As part of the Quality Assurance Program, our QA professionals regularly ensure that the following areas are in compliance within the laboratory:

  • Review and compliance of SOPs
  • Standards preparation traceability
  • Instrument maintenance
  • Non-conformance and corrective actions
  • Document control
  • PE audits performance and compliance
  • Sample receiving
  • State/Agency certifications and validations
  • Records retention
  • Waste management
  • Instrument and equipment calibrations
  • Data package review and peer checking
