Hello, I am desperatly looking for a laboratory that is accredited to do fish and seafood (crustacean) testing on surface swabs and they must be accredited for this. In Canada labs must be accredited for the specific methods and no lab is accredited for Fish or seafood?! I am told that in the US labs are accredited by technology instead such as PCR or Elisa is this true? can anybody validate this for me? i have a certificate of accreditation from the american associantion for laboratory accreditation but for all i know this may not be worth the paper its written on!!!
Any help would be appreciated, we cannot do test kits for fish and seafood as we have limited laboratory facilities and we already received a non-confomrity for using a non-certified lab.
thanks in advance
