METHODS OF ANALYSIS
Each sample will benefit from the latest in sample extraction techniques combined with a highly developed GC/MS analysis and detailed interpretation program.
This represents the latest in technology. Its development was aided through research sponsored by the National Research Council of Canada. The methods used also comply with ASTM guidelines. Our services have been designed specifically for the needs of the Arson Investigator and have been thoroughly designed through interviews with investigators. This includes the pre-sampling information, detailed chain-of-custody, legal sample tracking, and a concise and carefully laid out final report.
All samples are analyzed by GC/MS as per the latest ASTM guideline for E-1618. Our instrumentation is the most sensitive available. This is important for samples that have been in the field, held in storage for months, and for highly weathered samples. Our interpretation protocol is unparalleled and fully utilizes the power of GC/MS.
