Congratulations LCGC on 25 Years of Great Publishing!

As the leading producers of the highest quality Certified Reference Materials for over 50 years, SPEX CertiPrep would like to give a special thanks to LCGC for their support and guidance on spreading our name over the years. It is rare to find a magazine that cares about its advertisers as much as LCGC does.

Through the years, SPEX CertiPrep has achieved several milestones, our latest and most significant milestone is to be the first company to be accredited by A2LA for both Organic and Inorganic Certified Reference Materials. Now, in addition to being registered as an ISO 9001:2000 facility, SPEX CertiPrep is accredited by A2LA as complying with the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and ISO/IEC Guide 34-2000. The scope of our accreditation is the most comprehensive and encompasses all of the products SPEX CertiPrep manufactures.

This new milestone establishes our continuing dedication to our customers for providing the highest quality standards on the market. We manufacture standards for GC, HPLC, GC–MS, AA, ICP, ICP–MS, IC, ISE; Quality Control Samples; and Organometallic Oil standards. We offer over 10,000 Stock and CUSTOM Standards; as well as Capillary GC columns with the lowest bleed profile and highest durability on the market today. Our European subsidiary, SPEX CertiPrep, Ltd., offers Solid Reference Materials and SPEX SamplePrep offers Sample Preparation Equipment includes a large selection of laboratory mills and grinders; cryogenic mills; manual and automated lab presses; XRF disposables; sample cups; window film; a new Geno/Grinder tissue grinder/ extractor for 96-well titter plates and a new automated Electric (flameless) Fusion Fluxer and Flux. As always, SPEX CertiPrep Group wants to ensure total customer satisfaction that's why our motto has always been Superior Quality and Unparalleled Service.
