With over 80 years of combined experience in analytical chemistry and trace level elemental analysis amongst our staff, you can be confident in the quality and accuracy of your data. Our familiarity with many different industries, including the environmental, pharmaceutical, industrial, specialty chemical, dietary supplement, cosmetic, and toxicological disciplines, has given us a broad understanding of a wide variety of sample types. SGS is uniquely qualified to take on your project or ongoing quality assurance testing.
SGS provides analysis through Inductively Coupled Plasma – Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) and Inductively Coupled Plasma – Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) for trace metal analysis and more. These techniques generally have less interference and are also faster than both Atomic Absorption (AA) and Graphite Furnace AA (GFAA) when analyzing for multiple elements in a single sample. Detection limits are usually lower than GFAA. Its productivity, accuracy, and precision at low levels, make ICP-MS and ICP-OES the predominant choices for research, regulatory, and quality assurance applications. Because of these features, SGS has the ability to analyze an abundance of matrices for most of the naturally occurring elements.
At SGS we provide more than just trace level elemental analysis results. We believe in addressing all client needs personally and on an individual basis. Our entire staff is always available to answer all questions quickly and honestly. We also recognize that time is crucial so we make client response and turnaround time a priority. We consistently meet or exceed our clients’ due dates 97% of the time. We are proud of our Net Promoter Score, which is currently at 91.
