We are proud of the quality of our chemical analyses and our service, and invite you to become our client and colleague. Our goal is to serve you with excellence, from sample receipt to report delivery. If we can be of service or if you have any questions, please contact our knowledgeable staff at 1-877-252-9262 or drop us an email.

Good scientific practices determine the high quality of our analyses such as:

  • NELAP certification
  • Calibration vs. response curves
  • Daily initial standards and method blanks verify the calibration curve of each instrument
  • Analysis of quality control check standards periodically throughout each day's sequence, assures validity of calibration over time
  • MAI adds surrogates to every sample extracted for most analyses to evaluate extraction efficiency for each sample
  • Quality control data such as LCS, LCSD, spike, spike duplicate, surrogate recoveries, sample duplicates, and/or serial dilution data accompany all reports
  • MAI regularly participates in blind third party performance evaluation tests
  • Very low error rate in all facets of our laboratory operation - high quality data, full QC reports, absence of false positives and false negatives, dual column \ dual detector \ GC-MS confirmation for most GC analytes

In addition to high quality and cost savings, McCampbell Analytical has the following advantages:

  • Diverse testing capabilities for a variety of applications, including over 300 analytical methods covering many thousands of chemicals
  • Over $15 million of instrumentation means significant testing capacities for nearly all test methods to accommodate large sample loads & RUSH TATs, as well as facilitating on-time reporting for routine work. Instrument redundancy helps meet TAT commitments in the face of instrument breakdowns
  • Comprehensive pesticide and organometallic analysis capabilities
  • Expertise to characterize fuels for site investigation projects
  • Unique ability to set up for new compounds or new methods at reasonable pricing due to the excellent quality of our staff & equipment
  • EDF (COELT), EDT (CLIP), EarthSoft EQuIS, GISKey, WaterTrax, LocusFocus EIM, Element, SWAMP 2.5 and customized Electronic Data Deliverable (EDD) formats available, in addition to PDF, fax & paper formats
