About the Laboratory

The Ohio Lumex Laboratory is a NELAP accredited laboratory focused on three core areas - analysis of gases, liquids and solids, methods development, and consulting for our industry. We are the premier laboratory worldwide for the analysis of mercury,  combustion gas emissions, and gaseous fuels, including EPA Method 30B, EPA Performance Specification 12B, and EPA M7473 using direct mercury analysis via thermal decomposition. Our Laboratory offers the fastest turnaround times in the industry with the highest quality and goes beyond just analyzing and reporting of results by providing continual support and technical expertise.

Our Commitment to Quality

The Ohio Lumex Laboratory follows strict "Quality First" policies and procedures established by NELAP, TNI Standards, and those developed internally to ensure high-quality data acquisition. Every analytical batch receives detailed attention from sample acceptance to final report delivery. A QA/QC manager reviews and assigns each project to specific instrument parameters for optimal results. Each set of data is independently reviewed to verify that all laboratory QC checks have passed and method requirements have been adhered to. Our Laboratory Management Team is available to answer any questions you may have about your report.
