Report Information

Need your input!

What type of testing information would you want to see in your analysis report?  I need to ask this question from time to time to make sure Midwest Laboratories Reporting is providing useful information.  Sometimes, we receive reports and have no idea what the values mean.  If this occurs, more explanation is needed and questions need to be addressed.  Generally, if you have a question about a reported value on a report, someone else has the same question.  If the following situation has happened to you, or if you would like to see more  information on your report, let us know what that information is.

Turnaround Time

Midwest Laboratories focuses on turnaround time with respect to sample analysis.  We are different in that we are not a true, “research laboratory”.  When I use the phrase, “research laboratory” I am speaking about laboratories that perform 1-2 month study and try to develop methods that will help with the analysis. At Midwest Laboratories, our personnel use proven, documented methods with respect to analysis.

With the advances in technology, and specifically new instrumentation, we are working on methods with instrument vendors to be able to perform certain analysis better. Again, this type of analysis is done in cooperation with a vendor.

Midwest Laboratories clients want to be able to send their samples in for analysis and receive results in routine, standard time, in some cases results are needed right away with respect to decision making.

This is an important item to keep in mind when you send a sample in for analysis to any laboratory.  Every person should contact the laboratory they are working with and find out how long it will take to complete the analysis requested. By doing this step, clients
