"To have equipment that lasts for 10 years, especially with that number of samples going through it and petrochemical solid waste — which are hands down the worst environmental samples I can imagine — it has been a fantastic result for us," says Clint David at Environmental Chemistry Inc.
"We purchased our first automated extraction system in 2009, from Horizon Technology, now a part of Biotage. We primarily use this system for EPA Method 8270 analysis of hazardous waste classification leachates and industrial wastewater samples. [...] For us, this often means faster processing times, as well as increased traceability and quality assurance in our system. We have also seen an increase in automation, which saves our analysts time, which is really important."
