Since 1986, clients have included Federal, State and Local governmental agencies, the Department  of Defense, US Naval and Coast Guard shipbuilding contractors, various manufacturing firms and environmental remediation companies. Our laboratories have provided testing results to major companies such as BAE Systems and Huntington Ingalls Shipbuilding, among others. We test soil, water and air for Asbestos, Metal, Inorganics and we use the following methods:

Trace Metal Analysis EPA 6010 & EPA 200.7

Most test results can be provided same day, unless the testing protocol requires timed analysis, such as TCLP which is a next day result.
