Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories Environmental
Customer for over 42 years
In December of 1979, A2LA printed up a particularly noteworthy accreditation certificate: the recipient was Lancaster Laboratories Inc. (now Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories Environmental, LLC) and the certificate number on the documents was “0001.01”. Although their scope and capabilities have grown dramatically since they received the first-ever A2LA Scope of Accreditation, Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories Environmental has remained a loyal, valued A2LA customer and industry partner. Lancaster Laboratories was founded in 1961 by Earl and Anita Hess, and as a firm believer in the value of accreditation, Earl Hess had Lancaster Laboratories accredited by the fledgling A2LA in 1979.
Commitment to Quality
A2LA and Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories Environmental have retained a close professional relationship for the last four decades thanks to a shared commitment to accreditation as a tool for advancing laboratory quality. Although Lancaster Laboratories was acquired by Eurofins in 2011, and although staff has changed at both organizations over the years, they have remained aligned in their mission and values. Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories is accredited to both ISO/IEC 17025 and the DoD Environmental Accreditation Program through A2LA. They were also the first laboratory accredited by A2LA to ISO Guide 25. A2LA looks forward to an exciting future with Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories Environmental as both of our organizations continue to grow.

“They always go the extra mile and help us understand new regulation, ensure that we are approaching things correctly, and resolve any concerns (though rare) that we have had. We have collaborated over the years through numerous audits, and since we are geographically close A2LA has brought staff here during audits as a training tool. They are always quick to respond to questions or challenges, and when we have had critical needs to add certifications, they have helped us out.”
