Analytical Method Evaluation and Development

Many investigation projects have unique target Chemicals-of-Concern for which standard US EPA methods are not appropriate. Additionally, a project may require special pre-analysis preparation procedures, non-routine analytical techniques, low detection limits, or analytical modifications to reduce interferences in the analysis.

Environmental Standards provides analytical method evaluation or development expertise to provide solutions for non-routine chemical analysis. These services may include modifying the design of a US EPA method to achieve a certain goal or developing a new analytical method for a specific chemical or analysis matrix. We successfully developed SW-846 Method 3060A, alkaline digestion for hexavalent chromium, which was subsequently approved by US EPA.

Additionally, Environmental Standards’ chemists have critiqued analytical methods proposed by regulatory bodies on a client’s behalf to determine if the method was suitable and/or scientifically sound.
