Clients should still send their samples to the current lab address at 10771 Noel Street, Los Alamitos, CA until further notice.
"LA Testing really appreciates the feedback from the clients of the Los Alamitos, CA lab. The location of the Los Alamitos lab was key to many clients and LA Testing has delivered.
