• Trace Metals

     Staffed with analysts having over 15 years experience and coupled with precision instrumentation, this laboratory provides unmatched quality and analytical consistency.


     The Trace Metals Laboratory is equipped with two high capacity, low detection level Axial Inductively Coupled Argon Plasma systems. For ultra trace concentrations of metals, two atomic absorption graphite furnaces equipped with Zeeman background correction and auto-samplers, in addition a PSA Mercury Millennium System with Autosampler and Mercury Cold Vapor detector, are available.

“Many labs have solicited me over the years but I have no intention of leaving Phoenix. Why mess with perfection? I now have many more systems to operate and having a top notch lab leaves me with one less major aspect to worry about and more time to deal with the increasing amount DEP regulations…” —Certified Water Operator, MA
