Appalachian Laboratory

Water Chemistry Analytical Laboratory

AL's Water Chemistry Analytical Laboratory is a full service laboratory. Our highly-trained, professional staff are dedicated to providing quality analytical support to scientists, state and federal agencies, and the private sector.  Though our name implies water, we are also equipped to analyze solid samples, like soils, plants, and animal tissues, for a variety of constituents using EPA- and APHA-approved methods.

Our work has been generating high-quality data since the early 1990's that have helped support a multitude of long-term research efforts in western Maryland that have allowed us to detect trends over time.  We have also been a partner with Maryland Department of Natural Resources since 1993 as the sole analytical laboratory for the Maryland Biological Stream Survey.
