Custom Collection & Testing Programs to Meet Your Needs

IOM can customize a collection and testing program for lubricant oils, fluids, greases, and more from around the world. Our mission is to provide reliable and unbiased data based on the materials selected from the global marketplace. Once testing is selected from more than 150 test methods, the data is generated by ISO/IEC 17025:2015 accredited laboratories to ensure quality and consistency.

IOM’s Collection Program:

  • A resource to complement current operations in market research, QA monitoring, and competitive intelligence.
  • Each component can be tailored to meet individual specifications.
  • A variety of sample types can be collected using our experienced collection network.
  • Directed collections by regions, states, territories, and even cities may be possible.
