• Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry

     This Laboratory is equipped with eleven of the latest model GC/MS equipment from manufactures like Tekmar, EST and Agilent, allowing for the most accurate analyses with high capacity and the ability to perform a variety of methods simultaneously.


     We have a dedicated GC/MS instrument to analyze the 10 PCB Homolog Groups in Air (PUF), water, soil and building materials. In addition, we have developed an extensive Library of Aroclor mixtures and the resulting Homolog concentration represented by these mixtures.
