“EVIO Labs is proud that PhytaTech is now accredited to the same high-level of standards as our labs in Oregon, which are accredited to the even more highly rigorous ORELAP standard.  As we grow, we are committed to ensuring all our labs incorporate the highest quality standards in the industry.  We are currently in the process of obtaining ISO 17025 accreditation for our labs in Florida, Massachusetts and California and anticipate full accreditation in the coming months,” commented EVIO CEO William Waldrop.
