method development

We offer contract method and technology development for your environmental and air quality needs. Each project begins by clearly defining objectives and potential technical approaches with you. Upon agreement of project direction, we outline tasks and timetables, including anticipated costs, in a project proposal. We proceed only with your authorization and your projects are handled with complete confidentiality. Maintaining a close working relationship with you, we ensure your goals are met.

Our method and technology development services include:

  • Analytical method development and validation
  • Collaborative and comparative studies
  • Waste treatment studies
  • Consulting in QA/QC methods and procedures

Eurofins laboratories have more than 49 years of practical experience analyzing situations, developing strategies, and creating new methods and procedures. We operate as an extension of your business, successfully completing research-oriented projects that you might not have the time, expertise or available staff to undertake.

Air Testing

Not every project falls under the umbrella of the standard environmental methodology. Eurofins teams continue to invest significant resources in evaluating the performance of passive sorbent samplers for long-term environmental monitoring. Not only have we conducted internal studies, we have partnered with clients and also participated in EPA and DoD-funded studies to investigate advantages and limitations of various passive sampler configurations for VOC and SVOC measurements. The laboratory maintains a set of environmental chambers to generate VOC-specific sampling rates to support the passive sampler methods.

In addition to developing passive sorbent sampling solutions, Eurofins has developed and validated custom methods to meet project specific objectives.  Examples of recent methods are listed below:

  • Measurement of pptv levels of methoxypyrazine compounds in indoor air using a sorbent-based method
  • Determination of trace levels of Chlordane Pesticides and Aroclors in soil vapor using a sorbent-based method
  • Identification of odor-causing VOCs from waste-water and process streams
  • Measurement of Hexachlorocyclopentadiene in soil vapor
  • Determination of VOCs and SVOCs emissions from materials at elevated temperatures using micro-scale chambers
