Selecting an Oil Analysis Laboratory
Selecting an oil analysis supplier requires a thoughtful exercise in laboratory quality evaluation. There are many factors to consider when selecting a lab, but if you set your goals and requirements in advance, the number of qualifying labs will be reduced.
Vendor selections often devolve into a price-clubbing activity, which is a no-win situation because all of the potential vendors and end users eventually lose out. Though sample price isn’t irrelevant, it shouldn’t be considered until all technical and quality issues are thoroughly evaluated and ranked according to the needs of the end-user.
