Radiochemical Analysis

Our facility includes a full radiochemistry laboratory, capable of providing a complete range of analysis methods for drinking water, waste water and environmental samples. We have now obtained certification for drinking water and wastewater radiochemistry analysis in Arizona, Nevada, Mississippi, Hawaii, and Georgia. Our methods are chosen for the hard waters that dominate in Arizona and the Southwest.

We also meet Reg. Guide 4.14 requirements needed for some NRC licensees.
