In conjunction with literature review and continuously monitoring State and Federal regulations for the most recent updates, we maintain professional relationships
with scientists at Pennsylvania State University and Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania. Our relationships allow us to draw upon the
expertise of scientists at these institutions to support our expert staff.
