the growing environmental movement and the laws associated
with it, Val Associates began environmental analysis
in 1980. Starting with a flame AA spectrophotometer
and limited chemistry equipment; Val Associates now
boasts four state of the art gas chromatographs/mass
spectrometers, flame and
furnace atomic adsorption spectrophotometers and a
new inductively coupled plasma spectrometer.
