Customized Investigations

CHEMIR has experience implementing a wide variety of methods from our clients to meet their needs. Clients may already have a reference method in hand, but need a lab to execute it for them. CHEMIR has successfully executed and/or modified these methods to deliver the data a client needs, including methods sourced from:

  • ASTM
  • EPA
  • AOAC
  • Technical Bulletins
  • Academic journals and literature
  • Internal client methods

These methods have included chromatographic techniques (GC, GC/MS, HPLC, LC/MS, IC), spectroscopic techniques (UV-VIS, ICP-OES, NMR, FTIR), custom synthesis, wet chemistry, physical testing, specialized sample preparations and more. CHEMIR’s technical staff will review your method and determine how we can help.

Conversely, often clients will come to us with a unique problem that does not fit into a standard method or analytical service, and they may not know what methods or techniques to apply. CHEMIR has distinguished itself as the premier lab for designing, executing and delivering customized investigations.

We will spend time with you to first define the problem. This typically will require a lengthy discussion about the study to clearly develop the specific objectives. Once the objectives have been established, we will design the experimental parameters to include various controls ensuring the data will be valid and applicable. After completing the study, we will discuss the possible conclusions that can be drawn.
