Announcing the New Brooks Applied Labs

In case you missed it, Brooks Rand Labs (BRL) and Applied Speciation and Consulting (ASC) officially merged on April 1, 2015.

As Brooks Applied Labs, we will not only continue to provide you with the best customer service and most cutting-edge trace metals and metal(loid) speciation analytical services available in the industry, but our combined resources will enable us to increase our capacity and offer an even more comprehensive selection of specialty metals analyses and consulting services.

BRL’s strength in ultra-low-level mercury, methylmercury, and other mercury speciation analyses using cold vapor atomic fluorescence spectroscopy (CVAFS) combined with ASC’s broad range of high-level metals speciation services mean that our clients can more easily get exactly what they need for their projects and applications that require the support of specialty metals analyses. With this merger, cutting-edge method development, superior data quality, outstanding customer service, fast turnaround times, and a wide-range of available deliverable formats are all available from one laboratory!

All staff from BRL and ASC are staying on in the new company, so please feel free to call or email your existing point of contact directly with questions or find out more by reading our merger letter. We will be operating as BRL as we transition and consolidate into Brooks Applied Labs later this year. We are all thrilled about this merger and will be in touch to share important updates with you in the coming months!
