Analytical: ALS Environmental is constantly expanding its analytical horizons as new technology and techniques are introduced. Indicative of our commitment to innovation are the inclusion of GC/MS/MS, HPLC/MS & HPLC/MS/MS to our analytical arsenal. These technologies have expanded our capabilities to analyze for a wide range of compounds. Applications range from relatively simple environmental projects to complex chemistries associated with the support of clinical trials. Procedures are generally developed on an as-needed basis due to the specific needs and requirements of research and development projects, or project-specific needs associated with the application. Note that a number of procedures are on line that address common requests, particularly related to environmental applications (e.g. pharmaceutical personal care products, steroids and other endocrine disruptors, perchlorate, PFOA/PFOS, PDBEs, and many others).
Passive Diffusion Samplers: ALS Environmental manufactures the successful polyethylene diffusion bag sampler (PDBs) which eliminates the need for purging in groundwater monitoring projects when volatile organics are the analytes of interest. ALS Environmental also manufactures the Rigid Porous Polyethylene (RPP) sampler that allows gathering samples for inorganic and water soluble volatile and semivolatile analyses.
