Without looking it , up I believe it's Spectroscopic Oil
Analysis Program, apparently there is more than one way to analyze oil, Spectroscopic is the one I'm familiar with, it's the one the Army uses and I think most accurate, SOAP of course is the acronym. If your going to pay for it, make sure its a Spectroscopic analysis.
You'd be surprised at how much you can tell from simply filtering your oil through a coffee filter, of course it takes something like acetone to thin the oil enough to go through the filter.
