W.Va. - Researchers throughout the region who must use certified laboratories

today that the lab passed the West Virginia Department of Environmental
Protection certification process for analyses of non-potable-water inorganic
nonmetals and trace metals.
Virginia DEP requires researchers to use only certified labs,” said Perhinschi.
“Until today, WVU researchers had to send their samples off-campus to private,
certified analytical laboratories. Now that we are DEP-certified, researchers
can bring their samples to us. We can help researchers at other organizations,
