Cinnaminson, NJ, July 18, 2017
EMSL Analytical, Inc.’s corporate headquarters in Cinnaminson, New Jersey is now accredited by the Washington State Department of Ecology Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELAP) for laboratory testing of methamphetamine using the NIOSH 9111 method which utilizes Liquid Chromatography with Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS). EMSL Cinnaminson is in compliance with provisions set forth in Chapter 173-50 Washington Administrative Code (WAC) for this certification.
Methamphetamine (meth) production has been identified in everything from hotel rooms and recreational vehicles to apartments and luxury suburban homes. Many of these toxic chemicals can easily contaminate carpeting, wallboard, ceiling tiles, furniture and fabrics that absorb spilled or vaporized chemicals into them. Chemicals commonly used in the production of meth include flammable and volatile solvents such as methanol, ether, benzene, methylene chloride and trichloroethane. Other chemicals may include muriatic acid, sodium hydroxide, table salt and ammonia. Anyone near the production of meth or future occupants of a property or vehicle that has been exposed to meth can be at risk of contamination.
“If there is suspicion of meth residue in a home, building or vehicle, it is best to have the area tested,” said Joseph Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “Residues from meth are impossible to spot with the naked eye. The only way to be sure that it is not present is by having the proper analysis completed. With Cinnaminson’s Washington State ELAP certification for meth, we can better help our clients on the West Coast to identify this safety hazard.”
