Analytical Method Development

Service Description

Gossman Consulting Inc. (GCI) personnel have developed a number of analytical methods over the last 20 years. A number of these methods have been formally adopted as ASTM methods. GCI continues to refine these methods and frequently assists our clients in adapting these and other laboratory testing methods to the plant and matrix specific needs of our clients. We are frequently called upon to troubleshoot laboratory procedures that are not meeting data quality objectives.
