Lab reliability help!
How does one know if an environmental test lab is reliable or not?  Are 
there any rating systems?  After reading about the lab (Intertek) that 
falsified data on safety tests for more than 59,000 samples over 4 years 
in Texas, (http://www.nytimes.com/2000/09/22/national/22ENVI.html), our
anxieties have increased.  We are about to do air and soil sampling for 
beryllium oxide.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
