On September 22, 2015 Alliance Source Testing’s (AST’s) Decatur, AL Laboratory (AST Lab Services) received its certificate of accreditation to The National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Council (NELAC) Institute (TNI) standards from the Louisiana Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (LELAP). Under this accreditation, AST can internally perform all Particulate Matter determinations for our customers. This eliminates the costs and delays of using a subcontract laboratory, while providing the same level of accredited services as an external lab. Operations in the 2,000 sq. ft. lab are managed by Heather Morgan, who with her eight (8) years of PM analysis experience is capable of managing up to 150 samples per week. Laboratory Technical Director Jordan Laster indicated that “Receiving this [accreditation] is the result of hundreds of man-hours dedicated to detailing, refining, and documenting laboratory procedures. This is an important step to providing accredited services to customers in all states that have accreditation requirements. Special thanks are due to Heather Morgan and our QA Manager, Brandy Hughes for their efforts.” Currently, Louisiana, Georgia, Texas, Virginia, New York require that an analytical laboratory be accredited to the TNI standards for PM analysis, however other states are expected to join the TNI program. Regardless of requirements it is an advantage to all clients to use an accredited lab in case any technical or quality issues arise.

Our advanced mercury analyzer, the RA-915M Portable Zeeman Mercury Analyzer by Ohio Lumex, measures mercury vapor concentration in stack gases and natural gas streams. Our RA-915M Mercury Analyzer is a portable multifunctional atomic absorption spectrometer with Zeeman Background Correction, which eliminates the effect of potential interferences. It is the only highly sensitive mercury analyzer that does not require gold amalgam pre-concentration and subsequent regeneration. This enables the user to conduct real time, second-by-second monitoring of vapor phase mercury and has an extremely low detection limit at 2 ng/m3. Our system has a wide dynamic measuring range and captures up to 122 continuous hours of data acquisition, averaging, and data storage.
