9th July 2019 – CARDIFF, U.K. – Lextox Drug and Alcohol Testing (Lextox), a member of SYNLAB, today announced that the company has received official confirmation from the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) that their accreditation to the internationally recognised standard ISO 17025 has been achieved and maintained for an eighth consecutive year.
UKAS is the only national accreditation body which has been recognised by the government to assess, against internationally agreed standards, organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.
In order for the accreditation to be maintained, Lextox was subject to an evaluation by UKAS assessors earlier this year. The visit was successful and Lextox is accredited to test for a wide range of drugs and the alcohol markers, EtG and FAEE, in hair. The full list of substances that Lextox can detect in hair can be found here.
Paul James, Managing Director, at Lextox commented “This accreditation is testament to our people and processes. It further demonstrates our commitment to the reliability of our analysis results and hopefully instils confidence in the quality of our testing laboratory for clients”.
Lextox works to right-first-time quality assurance procedures to minimise delays and ensure the reliability of both its service and analysis results.
