Discover the American difference!


Our sample receiving department is the first point of contact with your samples. Our sample coordinators review every order to ensure all sample conditions, documentation and container requirements are within compliance.  They input pertinent data into our Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), and ensure samples are stored according to EPA requirements.  Then, the samples continue to our technical departments for analysis.


Our organic chemistry department is where analysis of a large assortment of organic compounds takes place. Most of these methods require a solvent extraction process and are analyzed using gas chromatography systems, including mass-spectroscopy,  for the analysis of organic contaminants, Pesticides, Herbicides, PCBs, Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons, Semi-Volatile and Volatile (Aromatic and Halogenated) contaminants.


Our inorganic chemistry department is the most versatile area of our laboratory.  We offer a large spectrum of analytical testing ranging from standard wet-chemistry techniques, such as Ammonia, Nitrogen, Oil and Grease, and Total Suspended Solids (TSS), to ICP Metals; key items in most wastewater discharge permits. Our state certification covers all general chemical analyses normally included in such NPDES permits.


American has been providing analytical chemistry data to clients throughout the Tri State area for over two decades. Our commitment to delivering the highest quality data available is rooted in a clear and confident understanding of current EPA, ASTM and State Specific Methodologies. The need for analytical testing can be as vast as it can be unique. American’s sample capacity grants us the ability to handle large projects and individual samples fluidly.

We are able to make decisions quickly and efficiently in order to customize your experience. Because every project is unique, our approach is customized to ensure your project is a success.


Our commitment to quality and accuracy are paramount, but our focus is you. Providing you dependable data just is not enough. How you receive that data and your experience should never be overlooked. That is why we have a multitude of EDD (Electronic Data Deliverables) at our disposal. This ensures that you get the data you need, when and how you need it.
