Analytical Reference Materials International was founded in 1984, and became part of LGC Standards in 2012 at which time it was relocated to the LGC Standards North American Headquarters in Manchester, NH.
We developed and manage the Inter-Laboratory Analysis Program (ILAP), which is the only totally voluntary organization in private industry dedicated to the production and development of quality CRMs. Our primary objective together is to supply those much-needed CRMs to serve the greater metals industry. We have also worked to develop and implement an industry acceptable system for the chemical characterization and certification of metal alloy materials that affords the scientific community an unequivocal level of confidence. It is equally important that we have traceability to values from the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) and from international certifying bodies as well.
LGC Standards is a leading global producer and distributor of reference materials. We have a diverse portfolio of over 100,000 products, including over 40 proficiency testing schemes which support a wide range of business sectors:
