Core Values

With over 20 years of operating experience, an organization full of capable team members, and some of the strongest companies in the world among our customer and vendor ranks, what we can accomplish is limited only by our imagination and coordination. We are an organization that is committed to bringing creative solutions to the table. Our customers openly talk about their needs and plans with us, and regularly thank us for going above and beyond to help them achieve their goals.
 
We understand that our customers are looking for a perfect product, delivered on time, by friendly and caring staff, with a problem resolution process.
Paragon team members are committed to common goals, committed to doing quality work, and recognized as professional practitioners of their craft – among independent testing laboratories, Paragon has become the place to work and our passion for serving environmental and human health attracts top talent in the science and support roles necessary to operate our business.  
 
Quality and speed are the hallmarks of our operation. For this, efficiency and efficacy are driven home with every training exercise we conduct. Getting an IDOC on a procedure takes a real effort. Despite this, we accomplish this task regularly, so much so that by the end of 2023 we expect to have a minimum of three staff members trained on every laboratory task we perform.  

We are regularly engaged in conversations around instrument uptime, theoretical capacity vs. actual capacity, maximizing first-pass acceptability events, minimizing failure events, and squeezing every second and mL of efficiency from our practices along with pushing performance to the edges of sensitivity. 

These core values have firmly established Paragon as THE leading authority among independent testing laboratories and service providers in Michigan.
