Chemical Analysis

Quality Control Accountability
Environmental chemicals
Novel Matrices

For custom chemical analysis projects we design and implement custom analytical protocols deploying state of the art instrumentation, in a manner which conforms with applicable federal, state or professionally mandated Standard Operating Procedures. Mehler & Associates Inc has developed a network of accredited laboratories that subcontract with our Corporation for the performance of chemical analytical procedures in strict adherence to our research protocols and strict quality control criteria. With our supervision and coordination the subcontracting laboratory produces a complete raw data package which we integrate into a Final Analytical Report that is presented to the Client. Mehler & Associates Inc. works with its Clients and subcontractors under express confidentiality provisions when required.

Due to the fact that we subcontract our chemical analyses projects to "boutique" laboratories, we can design and implement our analytical protocols with the widest selection of state of the art technologies. Some of the methods that we have utilized include (but are not limited to):

A. Gas Chromatography, Liquid Chromatography alone or in combination with Mass Spectrometry (GCMS, LCMS);
B. High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
C. Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectroscopy or Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry;
D. Microbiological and Sterility Testing
E. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
F. Electron Microprobe Analysis

For generic examples of Analytical Reports produced by Mehler & Associates Inc. please view the Chemical Analysis subsection of our Publications section.
