We're moving! Our new laboratory is nearing completion and we will be moving in early 2021. More details here.

***Please note: In an effort to help limit the spread of COVID-19, public access to the Standards Laboratory is restricted effective March 13, 2020. No visitors will be admitted through the front door. Customers needing to pick up or drop off artifacts for testing may do so at the back door or loading area. Customers waiting for tests to be completed will be asked to remain outside the building. Invoice or license fee payments may be made by mail or phone. We hope that by taking these measures we can minimize any potential disruption in laboratory services.

The Standards Laboratory Section performs mass, thermometry, dimensional and volume measurement calibrations that are traceable to national standards. Also responsible for inspecting grain moisture meters.
