Although the company is the only laboratory to hold accreditation with UKAS for the detection of controlled substances on banknotes, Mass Spec has pursued accreditation in other, traditional, avenues of forensic science. The laboratory has held accreditation for several years and is continually augmenting its list of accredited activities to cover more and more types of analysis. A current schedule of these activities can be found on the UKAS website by clicking here.
Accreditation in the UK means that the policies and procedures employed by the company are vetted by an independent body. A grant of accreditation is a stamp of approval, demonstrating MASS SPEC’s commitment to service quality and providing assurance to customers – mainly from the criminal justice system – that all analyses are undertaken in a controlled manner by skilled scientists. Scientists at Mass Spec all abide by the codes of conduct of the forensic science society, presenting evidence professionally and impartially.
