Chemistry Laboratory

asbestos analysis by polarized light microscopy

A team of chemists at the state of the art laboratory provide analytical testing capability for toxic chemicals in air, water, soil and waste samples. The chemistry laboratory uses a broad array of sophisticated equipment to detect very low concentrations of toxic materials. The testing provided by the chemistry laboratory supports a variety of regional and state surveys to study ambient conditions, investigate industrial contamination and rapidly assess accidental releases of hazardous chemicals.

The Chemistry Team provides the following services:

  • Multi-Media Analysis:
    Volatile and Semi-Volatile Organics
    Trace Metals
    Water Quality Analytes
    Waste Characterization
    Air Toxics
    Ozone Precursors
    Bulk Asbestos
    Oil Identification
    Endocrine Disruptors
    Explosive residues
  • Mobile Chemistry Laboratory
  • Technical Assistance: Lead in Soil - Community Outreach, applied chemistry research, laboratory auditing, training.
