Reference material production

LGC uses its expertise as the UK's National Measurement Laboratory (NML, designated for chemical and bio-measurement) to develop internationally-recognised measurement standards that are used as benchmarks in analytical laboratories.
Our scientists are at the forefront of measurement science and use the latest state-of-the-art measurement methods and instrumentation to develop and produce reference materials that underpin complex measurements.
Many of the analytical methods used to characterise the reference materials are accredited to ISO/IEC 17025 (General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories) and have been verified through participation on key comparison studies organised by the Consultative Committee for the Amount of Substance (CCQM) of the International Weights and Measures Organisation (BIPM).
Our reference material production is accredited to ISO 17034 (General requirements for the competence of reference material producers) and the certificates are recognised by other National Measurement Institutes, under the Mutual Recognition Arrangement.
