Characterization of Selenium in Solids

Brooks Applied Labs has developed a proprietary method for characterizing the molecular forms of selenium in soil, sediment, industrial byproducts, and biosolids. The technology we have generated allows our clients to ascertain the fate and transport of selenium in the solid phase environment as well as to identify the efficacy of treatment systems. The molecular form of selenium will dictate the toxicity, mobility through a solid substrate, treatability, bioavailability, and bioaccessibility. Our method currently supports discrete quantitation of selenite, selenate, selenocyanate, and methylseleninic acid, as well as fractionation of reduced selenium complexes (e.g., Cd-Se, Hg-Se, and Pb-Se), elemental selenium, and non-extractable selenium compounds.

International Mercury Conference
ICMGP 2017 Logo Last month, VP of Operations, Annie Carter, along with our Mercury Group Leader, David Westby, presented a poster at the International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant (ICMGP) in Providence, RI. The title of the poster they presented is " An Alternative Analytical Technique for Mercury Speciation in Radioactive Tank Waste at the Savannah River Site" and it discussed novel techniques developed just for this unique matrix to compare measurements made by traditional methods to more selective and modern analytical approaches.

National Environmental Monitoring Conference (NEMC)
NEMC Logo VP of Quality, Frank McFarland, will be chairing a session at NEMC in Washington, DC, which is taking place August 7 - 11. The title of the session is "Metals and Metals Speciation Analysis in Environmental Samples." We know that all you fellow attendees will be sticking it out with Frank on the last morning of the conference and encourage you to stop by and say hello! It's worth mentioning this session has been chaired by Brooks Applied Labs all but two years since 2010, and is naturally near and dear to our hearts to promote and advance good science surrounding metals analysis. Please support it with us!
