BAL Scientists Present at NEMC: Presentations Now Available for Download

NEMC Logo At the National Environmental Monitoring Conference (NEMC) in New Orleans last month, two of our BAL scientists presented in the session "Metals and Metals Speciation Analysis of Environmental Samples". Annie Carter's presentation focused on the determination of elemental mercury in soils by selective volatilization, while Brian Smith's presentation described a method comparison for the analysis of bioaccessible lead and arsenic in soils. Contact us today to learn more about either of these recently developed methods!
Did You See the Recent News About Heavy Metals in Baby Food?

Baby eating baby food Consumer Reports recently published a study that evaluated the levels of certain heavy metals in 50 different baby food products. As you may recall, this is a topic in which BAL has previously been involved by working with Healthy Babies Bright Futures and it continues to garner national attention. The reason for concern is simple and is stated in the Consumer Reports article, "'Babies and toddlers are particularly vulnerable due to their smaller size and developing brains and organ systems,' says James E. Rogers, Ph.D., director of food safety research and testing at Consumer Reports." For this reason, BAL is continuously working to be the industry leader in food testing by not applying a "one-size-fits-all" approach to various food matrices.
