Calgary Asbestos and Microbiology Testing Lab Receives CALA Accreditation
EMSL Canada, Inc. is proud to announce that its Calgary laboratory has been accredited by the Canadian Association for Laboratory Accreditation Inc. (CALA) for asbestos in air by PCM fiber counting (NIOSH 7400 Method), and mould analysis in air (ASTM D7391-09 Method), bulk and surface samples by microscopy. Through the CALA accreditation program, EMSL’s Calgary laboratory is compliant with International Standard ISO/IEC 17025:2005.
“EMSL is proud to receive this CALA accreditation and extend PCM and microbiology testing services to Calgary and its surrounding areas,” said Joseph Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Canada, Inc. “EMSL always strives to obtain a wide range of qualifications in order to better serve any analytical need throughout Canada as well as in the United States.”
“Alberta Asbestos Regulations specify CALA or AIHA proficiency for PCM analysis for permitted asbestos abatement projects,” stated Robert DeMalo, Senior Vice President of Laboratory Services and Business Development at EMSL Canada, Inc. “The regulations also recognize TEM NIOSH 7402 that is typically used when asbestos fibers need to be distinguished from other fibers, which is another service that EMSL can provide to its clients.”
EMSL Calgary is also certified by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) for PLM bulk asbestos fiber analysis (NVLAP Lab Code 500100-0).
