Summary of Services

This 10,000 square foot laboratory facility, situated in Milford, New Hampshire, operates with a staff of more than 20 highly trained professionals utilizing the most up to date laboratory analytical instruments and methodologies.

The Lab routinely analyzes environmental contaminants at concentration levels of a few parts per billion to several parts per million. This kind of lab analysis requires extreme care, well-trained staff and highly sophisticated analytical instrumentation. Examples of the instruments used include: Gas Chromatograph (GC), Combination Gas Chromatograph and Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS), Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption (GFAA), Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) Spectrometers, and High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC).

The Laboratory is divided into two sections. One section is dedicated to analyzing organic compounds. These compounds include: volatile solvents such as methylene chloride, trichloroethylene, benzene, toluene, etc.; chlorinated pesticides such as DDT, Dieldrin, chlordane, etc.; semi-volatile compounds such as phenols, phthalates and, other organic compounds such as PCB’s, MAEPH, MAVPH, and polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH’s). Most of these compounds are either highly toxic, persistent in the environment or bioaccumulative in animals and humans. The other unit is dedicated to analyzing inorganic or non-carbon containing compounds such as heavy metals (e.g., lead, mercury, arsenic, etc.), Anions such as fluoride, nitrate, chloride, perchlorate, etc. and a host of water quality parameters such as BOD, COD, pH, cyanides, nutrients, etc.

Sources of the samples could be from hazardous waste sites, river and lake monitoring, discharges from specific sources, accidental spills of hazardous chemicals, criminal and civil enforcement actions and citizen complaints. The types of samples include: water, soil, oil, hazardous waste, sewage sludge, paint, toys, jewelry, plus many other types of material.
