Title EMSL Boston Earns AIHA-ELLAP Accreditation for Lead Testing
Introduction EMSL Analytical, Inc. is proud to announce that its Boston laboratory is now ELLAP accredited for Lead Testing

Boston, MA,  March 25th , 2019

EMSL Analytical, Inc. is proud to announce that its Boston, Massachusetts laboratory has added lead (Pb) testing through the American Industrial Hygiene Association Laboratory Accreditation Program (AIHA-LAP, LLC) Environmental Lead Laboratory Accreditation Program (ELLAP). EMSL Boston can now analyze paint, soil, settled dust by wipe and airborne samples for lead.

“Exposure to lead can be harmful to people of all ages, but it’s particularly dangerous to the developing brain and nervous system of young children and fetuses,” said Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “Lead exposure can occur with no obvious symptoms for some time. The best way to determine if you’re being exposed to lead is to test for it. Our Boston laboratory continues to work hard to attain new accreditations that will benefit its customers and potential clients throughout the New England region.”

EMSL Boston is already accredited by AIHA-LAP, LLC Environmental Microbiology Laboratory Accreditation Program (EMLAP) for mold/fungi testing in air, bulk, and surface by direct examination as well as the Industrial Hygiene Laboratory Accreditation Program (IHLAP) for asbestos analysis. The laboratory is a participant in the AIHA Environmental Lead Proficiency Analytical Testing Program (ELPAT) for lead testing in paint chips, soil, dust wipes and air. EMSL Boston is also a participant in the Environmental Microbiology Proficiency Analytical Testing Program (EMPAT) for fungi as well as the Industrial Hygiene Proficiency Analytical Testing Program (IHPAT) for asbestos testing.

In addition, the laboratory is certified by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) for air and bulk asbestos analysis. EMSL Boston holds state certifications for Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Maine for polarized light microscopy (PLM), phase contrast microscopy (PCM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
