Because vials are marketed as “Certified” does not change the quality of a vial or cap simply by supplying a certificate. Testing procedures for every type of sample and for every application/analysis method cannot be performed economically. Therefore, even certified vials may not produce the assurance they claim to offer, only producing additional costs.
MicroSolv vials are warranted against any at all defects in manufacturing including potential contamination due to extractables from the glass. This is provided without additional costs.
Quality control procedures in testing of all MicroSolv vials including lot analysis and control has always been done and will continue to be done. Certificates of Conformance of QC Tests is available upon request.
It may be more proper to call vials that are supplied with a certificate of analysis for quality assurance as “Certificated” and not “Certified”.
