The mission of the Analytical Toxicology Laboratory is to provide timely and high-quality analysis of a wide selection of trace level organics from environmental and biological sources. Analytical services are available to CSU clients as well as external organizations including academic institutions, industrial users and government agencies. Listed below are routine analyses available through the Analytical Toxicology Laboratory. We provide a high standard of expertise in analytical chemistry and toxicology in compliance with USDA, EPA, and Good Laboratory Practices (GLP).

In addition, we offer custom method development and validation services to provide an appropriate analysis for your specific application. Custom method development will determine suitable sample preparation and analytical procedures, while validation will determine the performance characteristics of the method such as precision, accuracy, range, linearity, specificity, ruggedness, and limit of detection/quantitation to ensure quality results.

For more information on method development, please contact Dr. Greg Dooley to schedule a consultation.
