We are in the business of protecting families—and helping our clients do the same.

We employ cutting-edge techniques and technology to service the pharmaceutical, medical device, sterile compounding, cosmetic, and OTC (over-the-counter) industries with the comprehensive services and testing they continually rely on.

Our clients appreciate the transparency, focus on strict time lines, and attention to detail that we bring to each project.

We serve the food, medical device, natural products, OTC (over-the-counter) medications, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics markets. Within those markets, we test a wide variety of consumer products: pet food, lotions, shampoos, cleaning supplies, vitamins, water, and prepared foods, just to name a few. Our specialties include microbiology and chemistry, compendia methods, process and method validation, facility monitoring services, and quality control and release testing, as well as ICH stability storage.

How We Started

Accelerated Analytical Laboratory’s roots can be traced straight back to Founder and President Dave Metzger’s garage. Working from home, he applied his passion and subject matter expertise to develop testing and analysis methods for clients needing new chromatographic separation techniques to analyze for active ingredients.

Seeing an opportunity to provide industry leaders innovative testing services, he created Accelerated Analytical Laboratories in Milwaukee, WI in 2007. From humble beginnings in a small garage, we moved to a 4,500 square foot facility, then 8,000, then 12,000. We are now a full-service, 19,000 square foot laboratory that performs regulatory testing for clients in the food, medical device, natural products, OTC (over-the-counter) drug, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics markets. We are the only laboratory of its kind in Milwaukee, with local, regional, and international clients.

Although we have grown as a company, Accelerated still brings a personal touch other testing laboratories can’t match.


You could say that we are obsessed with quality. From our ISO 17025-accredited state-of-the-art facility to implementing the FDA’s cGMP regulations for pharmaceuticals, we ensure that an outcome is well documented.

Fast. Reliable. Accurate. More than just a motto or a trademark, these are words we live by in the laboratory.

  • Fast. Samples that come into the lab daily are processed immediately. Results from tests are read and reported as soon as they are available, then sent off to our clients. We are always moving and always motivated to give our clients what they need.
  • Reliable. If a test doesn’t exist, we create one. If something isn’t working, we fix it. We are always confident that when a result goes out, we can say with certainty that we did everything perfectly and according to spec.
  • Accurate. Every member of our team is dedicated to their work. All tests that we perform and the work that we do falls under a promise we all took at one point in our education and professional experience: “to put what we know to work.”
