Drinking Water Certification

Cardinal Labs has traditionally tailored its services to the oil & gas, mining, and power generation industries.  While we continue to set a high standard in these sectors, we’ve also recently obtained reciprocity certification through the New Mexico Environment Department, and can now accept drinking water samples for analyses such as THMs and HAAs.  

High Quality Results

Cardinal Laboratories and Green Analytical Laboratories each participate in the NELAC accreditation program as administered through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).  As part of the NELAC quality standard, the laboratories execute Performance Evaluations (PEs) at a specified interval on a wide range of analyses ranging from trace metals to hydrocarbons.  Custom quality control packages are available upon request.

All information pertaining to a client’s sample is stored and tracked through a laboratory information management system (LIMS).  The LIMS archives sample data such as container and preservative specifics, expiration date, project name, location, and matrix type.  The data being stored indefinitely gives us the ability to query historical project information upon customer request.  The LIMS is also capable of creating an abundant array of electronic data deliverables (EDDs), which can be tailored specifically to a client’s custom database.

Personal Service

The laboratory professionals at Cardinal Laboratories are friendly, knowledgeable, and easily accessible.  Each client and each project is very unique and is treated accordingly.  It is common for our customers to request expedited turnaround, so we have designed our facilities to maximize efficiency and capacity.  Each member of Cardinal’s staff including the owner, laboratory director, and office manager can be contacted directly at any time, as is often necessary to discuss custom quality control, turnaround, or billing requirements.
