Quantifying Trace Selenium in Seawater

Coast at Sunset Brooks Applied Labs (BAL) is now offering an innovative method for the quantitation of selenium in saline waters at concentrations as low as 5 ng/L (parts-per-trillion). BAL's novel method utilizes in-line matrix component separation and pre-concentration, is fully automated, and has no spectral interferences attributed to the saline matrix. Ultra-trace detection limits for selenium in saline waters (such as seawater, brackish waters, RO reject water, and brines) to support discharge requirements and investigations for estuaries, bays, near shore and open ocean, and saline lakes with unparalleled quality are now a reality.
BAL Presents at Congressional Briefing

Michelle Brisoe and Joel Creswell Michelle Briscoe, President/CEO of BAL, presented last month at a Congressional Briefing for the bi-partisan and bi-cameral Congressional Chemistry Caucus as part of a contingent from the American Council of Independent Laboratories (ACIL). The theme of the briefing was "Protecting Public Health, Safety, and the Environment: Independent Testing Laboratories and the Federal Government". Ms. Briscoe, pictured with the moderator of the briefing, Dr. Joel Creswell, legislative aid for Rep. Lipinski (D-IL), discussed the role independent specialty laboratories play supporting governmental agencies and cutting-edge research. She provided diverse examples of how BAL was working with the EPA on method development and the FDA on characterization of toxic compounds in food, as well as how BAL supports the FDA-regulated biopharmaceutical industry through characterization of trace metals impacting commercial production of oncology drugs. Visit the BAL website for more information on any of these topics!

Summer Picnic Time!

This year's Brooks Applied Labs Summer Picnic and Camping event was again hosted at the beautiful property of one of our owners north of Seattle near Darrington, WA. This is the second year in a row that BAL employees and their families were graciously invited to use this space for our Summer Picnic event. A beautiful drive up to the property takes you away from the hustle and bustle of city life and to a natural setting near the Stillaguamish River. With amazing views of the mountains, trails alongside the nearby creek, and a big open field for a slip n' slide and water balloon fights, it made for a wonderful fun-filled day for all!
