Hi all! Does anyone know where I can search to find a lab that is certified in a particular AOAC method? Our lab has lost use of a piece of equipment temporarily, and our backup lab does not offer this method. However, we have a customer who is requiring the test. Any points in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!

What are the tests that you need? Also what state?

AOAC 2008.06 for Fat in fully cooked chicken products. The samples will be coming out of Alabama, but we can ship anywhere.

Agree! They are great! They're our primary.  :giggle:  They are reaching out from their end, but I'm also searching on my own as well. We're not having luck here.

I've reached out to most of those, and so far no luck while waiting on responses from others.

 

That's why I'm curious about another database or a place to search certifications for other options.

My understanding is that you can look at a member directory here:
