Lead Laboratory Testing

Lead - a toxic metal found in paint, soil, and plumbing systems, it can cause developmental issues and cognitive impairment. Accurate testing is vital for safeguarding health and creating a safe environment.

Understanding Lead

Lead is a highly toxic metal that can pose serious health risks, especially to children and pregnant women. It has been widely used in various industries, including paint, plumbing, and construction. Even though its use has been restricted in many countries, lead-based materials can still be found in older buildings and household items.

Exposure to lead can occur through ingestion, inhalation, or skin contact. The most common source of lead exposure is through lead-based paint, particularly in homes built before 1978 when its use was banned in residential properties. Lead-contaminated dust and soil are other potential sources of exposure.

At our laboratory, we understand the importance of accurately assessing lead levels to protect human health and the environment. Our comprehensive lead testing services provide valuable insights into the presence and concentration of lead in various materials, helping our clients make informed decisions about remediation and mitigation.

Our Laboratory and Expertise

Our state-of-the-art laboratory is equipped with cutting-edge technology and staffed by a team of highly trained experts in lead analysis. We specialize in the following lead analysis techniques:

  • Lead - Flame Atomic Absorption (AA): We utilize the Flame AA technique to detect and quantify lead levels in samples. This method offers excellent sensitivity and accuracy, allowing us to analyze a wide range of materials for lead contamination.
  • Lead - Graphite Furnace Atomic Absorption (GFAA): Our laboratory is equipped with Graphite Furnace AA instruments, which provide enhanced sensitivity for analyzing samples with low lead concentrations. This technique is particularly useful when analyzing samples that require higher precision and lower detection limits.

With our expertise in these advanced lead analysis techniques, we can deliver accurate and reliable results for your lead testing needs. Our laboratory follows stringent quality control measures and adheres to standardized testing protocols to ensure the highest level of accuracy and precision in our analyses.

We are committed to providing fast turnaround times for our clients, as we understand the importance of timely results in decision-making processes. Additionally, our team of lead analysis experts is available to provide professional consultation and guidance regarding lead testing, interpretation of results, and appropriate remediation strategies.

Rest assured that our laboratory complies with all local, state, and federal regulations governing lead testing, ensuring that our services meet the highest standards of quality and accuracy.
