Member Benefits Programs


ACIL’s Laboratory Referral Service

ACIL receives hundreds of inquiries monthly from people interested in independent laboratory or testing services. ACIL’s invaluable referral service, ACIL Assist, provides members with complimentary exposure to potential clients. ACIL Assist matches callers’ needs with members’ capabilities, and all members are encouraged to update their company data with ACIL to avoid missing out on these valuable business referrals.  If current members are not receiving these inquires, please contact Beth Horan.

The ACIL ListServe allows members to communicate with other members regarding outsourcing of work, selling/buying of materials, equipment, labs, etc, as well as offers a place for specific requests and questions from the professional and/or the public sector to be disseminated quickly and efficiently.
