Instrumentation

BC Laboratories is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation and equipment to address the analysis matrices of all environmental matrics. The instrumentation laboratories are segregated by discipline [organics analysis, inorganics analysis, sample preparation, and wet chemistry] and are provided with separate recirculating air conditioning systems to reduce cross-contamiation from common laboratory solvents [methylene chloride, acetone, hexane and toluene] used in sample extractions. All supplies, devices and instrumentation purchased by BC Laboratories must meet requirements set by ASTM, the laboratory, and the suppliers as to their intended use. Methods for acceptance include:

  1. Review of manufacturing process control data
  2. Source verification
  3. Receipt inspection
  4. Pre-installation and post installation testing
  5. Review of certificates and conformance
  6. Pilot runs
