Over the years Ryan & Associates has established a reputation for providing a technically competent and reliable testing service to all its clients priding themselves in a fast Turn –Around time; however we have no control over the time required to complete the testing in accordance with specified test methods or delays due to sample quality.

In cases where more than one test is required on a particular sample the total sample amount required is determined by adding together the amounts required for each test. Different tests on the same sample may be carried out concurrently so a testing program should take as long as the most time consuming test being carried out.
