As an ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 17025:2005 certified lab, Savant places quality at the center of everything we do. From the first entry of a customer sample into our laboratory until its final disposition, we treat it as the valuable and often irreplaceable source of information it is. We utilize innovative equipment and adhere to the rigorous application of ASTM and other industry standard test methods for measuring the critical properties of high-quality lubricants.
All our chemists and technicians are given responsibility for the quality of the data they produce -- from the regular calibration and maintenance of their instruments to the careful monitoring of reference values and control charts. Data is also reviewed by a quality control specialist before reporting. We support our results. If you have questions, we can provide the answers you need quickly.

Savant is proud of its testing quality and accuracy. Tests will be rerun upon request to confirm data accuracy. If rerun test results fall within repeatability of original test results, both original and rerun tests will be billed to the customer. If rerun test results are not repeatable with original test results, subsequent analysis will be conducted to determine the source of error, accurate results will be reported to the customer, and only one test will be billed to the customer.
