Specialized Testing

CTLGroup’s experience in laboratory testing extends far beyond standard testing. There are times when a project’s needs cannot be fulfilled by the available roster of typical standard test methods, or that tailored testing set-ups are necessary to provide the results sought. When that happens, you want someone on your team who knows what it takes to design, build and perform specialized tests that will provide you the crucial information that you need.
