AccuStandard, founded in 1986, is a leading manufacturer of Certified Reference Materials (CRMs). The company started in a business incubator co-sponsored by Yale University and The City of New Haven at the former site of Olin Chemical Company in New Haven, Connecticut, USA. Outgrowing that facility, the company moved across town in 1998 into a fully modernized facility of 37,000 square feet of laboratories, office and storage space. AccuStandard offers a comprehensive selection of organic, inorganic and petroleum reference standards for chemical analysis, serving a global market.
AccuStandard ships products to over 130 countries and maintains a distributor network in 85 of those countries. Since AccuStandard’s inception the product line has grown to include over 12,000 Reference Standard products and twice that number of special formulations which have been developed for specific customer needs. Standards include those for EPA Methods, Pesticide Residue Screening, Flame Retardants, Biofuels, Plastic Additives, Dyes, Explosives, UOP and ASTM Methods and up-graded products for PIANO and Physical Property analyses.
The Company is renowned for its recognition and speedy introduction of standards to the market place. The Company’s unparalleled Synthesis Department provides important and unique products and product lines, including systhesis of all 209 PCB and PBDE congeners, as well as many halogenated dioxins and dibenzofurans, PAHs and pesticides.
Among the more recent introductions are the hydroxy and methoxy PBDE congeners as well as mixed bromo/chloro hydroxy and methoxy diphenyl ethers, fluorinated PBDE congeners (used as internal standards), organophosphate flame retardants, biofuels, plastic additives (AccuStandard authored a CRC Press Handbook), EPA Method 535 pesticide derivatives and previously unavailable explosives.
AccuStandard’s quality system is certified to ISO 9001 and is accredited to ISO Guide 34 and ISO/IEC 17025 as a Reference Material Producer for the manufacture of Certifed Reference Materials (CRMs). AccuStandard owes its success in large part to the excellence, loyalty and dedication of its staff. We look forward to serving our customers for many years to come.
