Collaboration & Communication is the Key to Better Results
Labs have evidently enjoyed offering materials analysis to customers in a variety of industries for many years. And the relationships that have been the most fruitful for us all have one thing in common: open communication. Researchers, developers, and product managers frequently forget to provide crucial background information that can improve the analysis process, whether it's a deliberate choice made in an effort to reduce testing bias or a simple error made as you rush to submit your sample.
Less isn't always more, as the saying goes. Working together and communicating effectively are essential for achieving your goals while saving time and money.
In other words, no two samples are identical. Each sample has a distinct history that may have a big impact on how we conduct our tests. Our analysts use their knowledge and the data you provide to make educated decisions about which analytical techniques to use, even though we all wish the Star Trek 'tricorder', which provided detailed information about a material's characteristics at the touch of a button, was reality rather than fiction. The integrity of the company you work for and the calibre of your products depend on quick, precise, and efficient testing.
