A Lesson on Methylmercury Analysis by the Experts!

Since 1990 the International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant (ICMGP) has been providing scientists from all over the world with a forum for in-person discussion and information exchange of mercury-related contamination concerns. Brooks Rand Labs has been providing ultra-trace level mercury analysis for over thirty years, therefore it’s no surprise that, Annie Carter, Vice President of Operations, has been invited to speak at the conference workshop Trace-level Mercury Measurement. Annie will be presenting on a further investigation of distillation techniques for the determination of methylmercury in aqueous samples based on results from the highly regarded 2015 Brooks Rand Instruments Interlaboratory Comparison Study for Total Mercury and Methylmercury, an intercomparison study organized by workshop host and moderator, Dr. Joel Creswell, Technical Director at Brooks Rand Instruments. This workshop is certain to provide invaluable insights for any analytical chemists or researchers performing methylmercury analysis and data interpretation.

Lead Isotope Ratio Testing Available at BRL

Brooks Rand Labs currently offers lead (Pb) stable isotope ratio testing for application to environmental forensic studies. Lead has a unique isotopic pattern and small differences in the ratios of these isotopes can help in identification of the source, transport, and biogeochemical fate of the element in atmospheric bulk deposition, soils, freshwater, and seawater matrices. More information on the stable isotope ratio analysis for lead can be found on our website. To obtain additional information or a price quotation, please contact us today!

Brooks Rand/Applied Speciation Merger Highlighted in EBJ Article

Following the recent merger of Brooks Rand Labs and Applied Speciation, an article was published in the 2015 Environmental Industry Outlook 2015 edition of the Environmental Business Journal. This article neatly sums up the many benefits that this merger brings to the new company, which will be known as Brooks Applied Labs, as well as to our current and future clients. With the combined resources of both companies, the merged company offers additional capacity for fast turnaround projects, a far greater breadth of specialty analytical services, and the same outstanding data quality and customer service that our customers have come to expect from us.
