ALS performs a full range of organic, inorganic, and radiochemical analyses.
ALS uses SW-846 and EPA methodologies on a wide range of sample matrices including groundwater, surface water, wastewater, soil, sludge, multiphasic samples, air, biota, vegetation, building debris, mixed waste, and hazardous waste.
Further, ALS provides a full range of Alpha Spec, Gamma Spec, Liquid Scintillation, Gas Flow Proportional, and Alpha Scintillation methods. The ALS laboratory in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA holds a current Radioactive Materials Handling License from the state of Colorado, is NELAC accredited in Utah, along with 18 other state accreditations, and is USDA licensed to accept samples outside the United States (OCONUS).

NORM / TENORM TESTING
ALS is a proven industry leader providing analytical data and support for radiological needs. ALS is the right partner when you need trusted analytical laboratory data. With a dedicated and knowledgeable staff, ALS is here to help you with the ever increasing concerns of NORM and TENORM.
- NORM: Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials
- TENORM: Technologically Enhanced Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials
NORM and TENORM issues address the radioactivity associated with naturally occurring radionuclides. Analytes of concern include those in the decay chains of uranium and thorium, as well as non-chain radionuclides such as K-40. In addition, the radiation levels in NORM are generally in keeping with naturally occurring concentrations. TENORM is created when NORM is processed in such a way that the native levels of radioactive materials are elevated in either the usable product or the waste products.
