Bastrop, Texas, June 7, 2016 -- After two years of laboratory compliance work and extensive quality control development, CWC Labs has just been awarded the highest standard of international laboratory accreditation: ISO 17025.
Click here to read a summary overview of ISO 17025 from ISO.org, the international standards organization.
ISO 17025 accreditation is such a difficult standard to achieve that it is surprisingly rare in the world of laboratories. Most university labs are not ISO accredited, and many do not follow the rigorous quality control processes required at ISO accredited laboratories. Surprisingly, most labs offering commercial testing services are also not ISO accredited because achieving that level of accreditation takes years of dedication to analytical excellence.
In giving credit to ISO standards, our pursuit of ISO 17025 accreditation made us a vastly better laboratory than we could have achieved on our own. The rigorous compliance requirements of ISO "upped our game" and forced myself and our entire laboratory team to function at an extremely high level of accuracy and technical proficiency. The result is that we now demonstrate a commanding mastery of the analytical instrumentation used in our lab.
At CWC Labs, we can analyze soils, compost, well water, sports drinks, vaccines, perfumes, snack chips, fish oil supplements and almost anything else you can imagine. In all these items, we can detect and quantitate very precise concentrations of individual elements (metals and minerals), hormone disruptors, pesticides, preservative chemicals, phytonutrients, chemical solvents, industrial contaminants, pharmaceutical drug residues and much more.
PJLA has accredited a large number of laboratories all across the world, and it is one of the top recognized ISO accreditation bodies operating today. By visiting this accreditation search link and entering the word "Consumer" in the laboratory name field (or enter certificate # L16-224 in the certificate field), you can click "Search" and find our laboratory accreditation listing.
You'll see that we were accredited on May 25th, 2016, and that our accreditation is valid through August 31st, 2018. You'll also see that our ISO accreditation status is "active."
JPLA has also accredited many other highly recognized science-based organizations around the world such as:
We're now welcoming commercial clients who need ICP-MS analysis (elements + heavy metals), and we'll soon be rolling out services for individuals to test their well water.
Anyone interested in our laboratory services may reach us via this contact page.
Now, you can meet all the necessary FDA requirements for your products with the help of the founder and lab science director of an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory, which is exactly what the FDA recognizes as authoritative.
We've already begun that process, in fact, with the release of the first 100 water test results from across America. Find those results in our newly launched science journal called the Natural Science Journal.
You can download the journal for free, or view the full text of my first published scientific study entitled ICP-MS analysis of toxic elements (heavy metals) in 100 municipal water samples from across the United States.
(An expanded version of this science paper, covering hundreds more water results, will be submitted to more mainstream journals for publication later this year.)
Throughout 2016, we will be using our accredited science lab to conduct analytical testing of products like dog food, protein powders, chocolate bars, vaccines, dietary supplements, cosmetic products and much more.
All the results will be published for free at NaturalScienceJournal.com

Purchase our testing kits and send us your samples for authoritative, accurate quantitative testing:
CWC Labs tests nutritive minerals and toxic heavy metals using ICP-MS instrumentation capable of sub-parts per billion detection.
Glyphosate, AMPA, pesticides and agricultural chemicals are tested via LC-MS-MS (triple quad mass spec) using ion fragment quantitation and confirmation protocols.
Note: CWC Labs does not test biological liquid samples such as urine, blood or breast milk. We do, however, test hair for heavy metals.
CWC Labs is ISO-17025 accredited, which is the "gold standard" for analytical testing accuracy.
