Our Environmental Services laboratory in Anchorage, Alaska has developed a new analytical technique based on the most current instrumentation. As of Revision dated July 30th, 2015, analysis of Dibromochloropropane (DBCP), Ethylene Dibromide (EDB) and 1,2,3-Trichloropropane (TCP) is now approved to be reported by 8260B-SIM per the Department of Defense ELAP.

EDB, one of several “lead scavengers,” is a contaminant of concern for sites such as former gas stations, storage facilities and military bases. This persistent pollutant was added to leaded gasoline until phased out in the 1980s.

Application of 8260B-SIM technology improves analysis by achieving low cleanup criteria levels. This same methodology is employed for low level PAH analyses. It offers superior sensitivity and accuracy over the traditional GC-ECD methodology, which requires dual column confirmation. We are pleased to now support this growing analytical need in-house.
