Chemical Analysis is used by environmental laboratories to both identify and quantify contaminants specified by clients. For organic contaminants chromatography is the instrumentation of choice, while ICP instrumentation is used for metals and a number of instruments are used for inorganic parameters.
Even with on-going development of new instrumentation for chemical analyses, there are still many robust manual chemical methods utilized in the environmental industry to this day. ALS regularly examines all available methods of analysis to keep current on being able to provide the most accurate data possible.
All ALS laboratories aspire to uphold a higher standard than is expected. We are always looking for ways to improve our speed of delivery and our ability to measure even the lowest levels of contamination, and to provide additional value to the industries we serve. ALS finds the best practices in each lab to standardize across all our laboratories in our on-going performance optimization.
The ALS approach of standardising of the latest instrumentation across laboratories provides redundancy, allowing samples to be shipped between laboratories if required.
Newer instrumentation provides a robustness older instrumentation typically lack. Therefore, allowing both faster and more consistent run times providing an enhanced ability for timely reporting.
