Los Alamitos, CA - Oct 27, 2008 —  LA Testing has been accepting samples at their Los Alamitos, CA laboratory.  The firm received accreditation in 2005 from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) by NVLAP for TEM analysis of airborne asbestos fibers. With anticipated growth and expansion of services requiring additional lab space, "LA Testing is still the only accredited TEM asbestos laboratory in Orange County.  We continue to make strides to satisfy our client base as we have brought on additional laboratory services at each of our facilities. Not only do we offer TEM services in our Los Alamitos, we also are proud to offer expanded services throughout our west coast regional laboratories.
