Cinnaminson, NJ, February 14, 2017
EMSL Analytical, Inc. is pleased to announce that its corporate headquarters laboratory located in Cinnaminson, New Jersey is now certified by the State of Colorado Laboratory Services Division for testing lead in drinking water by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) method 200.8 per the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
The most common way that lead gets into water is through the corrosion of pipes, according to the Drinking Water Research Foundation (DWRF). Lead can be introduced into water when the water sits too long in leaded pipes, which can then unknowingly be consumed. Since lead in drinking water cannot be detected through scent, sight or taste, the only way to confirm its presence is through proper analysis.
“EMSL is continuously working to earn new certifications in order to help clients with different state-specific requirements,” said Joseph Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “Our Cinnaminson Environmental Chemistry Department continues to expand its instrumentation and testing capabilities to better serve our clients. The laboratory was already accredited by the State of Colorado for asbestos in drinking water and added this new testing parameter to help identify potentially toxic materials in drinking water samples.”
EMSL Cinnaminson is the largest laboratory in the company’s network and maintains over 100 accreditations from different state, federal and other accrediting agencies. Some of the laboratory’s accreditations are from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) and more.
