Research, testing and measurement laboratories are a defining feature across the broadest range of industries – from automotive and power through petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals to environmental protection. In fact, just about everything we eat, drink and use has been analysed at some point in its lifecycle. Many of these testing policies and methods are also evolving rapidly as stricter pollutant thresholds and new species are being added to the test scope. The EU is increasingly harmonising and tightening emissions legislation for both on-road and off-road vehicles, for instance. Recent legislation such as Euro 6 and NRMM Stage V mandate much lower emissions levels for cars, heavy-duty vehicles and non-road mobile machinery and this – in turn – calls for much stricter measurement and analysis processes.
Regardless of what they are analysing or testing, all laboratories have one thing in common. They are aiming for precision and often rely on high-purity process and calibration gas mixtures to achieve this. This is especially true as instrumentation and analysis needs become more sophisticated.
Whether you run a dedicated in-house, contract or commercial lab, you are probably under growing pressure not only to stay abreast of the latest analytical methods, but also to manage costs through efficiency gains. The challenge lies in maximising return on costly capital investments by ensuring the highest levels of precision and accuracy in all measurement and calibration workflows. In other words, you need to get it right first time – every time.
