Laboratory Testing Standards

    ASTM's laboratory testing standards are instrumental in specifying the standard dimensions, design, and make of the various equipments and instruments used in the laboratory for scientific experiments and procedures. These standards help laboratories, manufacturers, and other users and producers of such apparatuses in ensuring good quality and workmanship.
