Statement of Purpose

SER2L provides comprehensive environmental field sampling and state-of-the-art analytical facilities for research purposes, including the academic, public and private sectors. We offer high quality field and analytical capabilities which are not typically available through commercial analytical laboratories. We specialize in the sampling and comprehensive characterization of suspended particulates and sediments.

Capabilities

- Sedimentary accumulation or sequestration, bioaccumulation and food chain transfer of potentially toxic elements and compounds.

- Sediment-water exchange processes.

- Sediment transport and erosion processes.

- Geochronology of sediments, soils, and other deposits.

Price Schedule and Results

Field sampling or per sample analytical costs are determined by project, considering the scale of work, required turn around time and requested format of results. SER2L specializes in high quality analytical and field work. Typical turn around time for analytical services is ~30-45 days, arrangements can be made for faster service, and a surcharge will be applied. Standard, research-grade QA/QC protocols are maintained for all sampling and analytical analyses.
