Methods & Analytes

Laboratory analysis

The Ohio Lumex Analytical Laboratory supports a wide array of methods and analytes to meet the needs of our customers across multiple industries. While offering many industry-standard methods, we are also not afraid to innovate and think outside the box in order to find the best solution to any given challenge. This includes researching and applying alternative approaches and even authoring new analytical methods, many of which have been adopted by authoritative bodies such as the EPA and ASTM. Our dedication to continuous improvement has led to increased efficiency, lower detection limits, improved accuracy, and decreased turnaround times. We look forward to applying these benefits to your analytical needs!
