An Accredited Lab

Committed to Quality.

At the Northern Analytical Lab Services, you can rely on us for providing accurate, responsive, and reliable analyses for your testing needs. Here's how we prove it:

A BC PHO approved lab

Drinking water testing is regulated in each province. In the province of BC, environmental laboratories performing microbiological tests on drinking water samples from small to large water systems for public health purposes, must meet the requirements set out by the BC Drinking Water Protection Act and Regulation.

The NALS has participated in the Enhanced Water Quality Assurance Program in partnership with Clinical Microbiology Proficiency Testing that reports to the Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry to recommend laboratory approval for drinking water testing and received PHO approval. 

We are listed on the official PHO approved labs list: 831phoapprovedlaboratorylist202106301.pdf

Testing that is certified by International Standards.

The NALS laboratory is accredited to the International Standards Organization 17025:2017 Testing and Calibration Laboratories through the Standards Council of Canada. The ISO 17025:2017 is the highest standard quality management system for laboratories and the NALS is proud to be the only university lab in Northern BC to have this important designation.
