It features a fully integrated sample handling system, rugged gas chromatograph GC module and enhanced data processing and handling capabilities, including a state-of-the-art LCD color display and user interface.
Sometimes problems arise because either the certification program was not designed around the ASTM specification s or the laboratory technician did not select all of the test method options that are required.
Spectro Scientific has introduced an upgrade to its FieldLab 58 consisting of a more powerful X-ray fluorescence XRF module and newly designed filter that significantly improve the limits of detection for wear metal elements in oil. Laboratory Centrifuge Our main business scope is laboratory equipment and medical equipment. Show oldest on top Show newest on top. We are not able to simplify the requirements, but we can help the laboratories to better understand them. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.
Considerations for specifying agencies It seems like the number of agencies that specify the ASTM quality system standards is on the rise, and the AASHTO Accreditation Program will continue to do its best to support their quality objectives. This specification can be used as a basis to evaluate testing or inspection agencies, or both, and is intended for use for the qualifying or accrediting, or both, of testing or inspection agencies, public or private, engaged in the testing and inspection of road and paving materials.
