RTI Laboratories has extensive experience providing analytical support for sediment projects nationwide. RTI adheres to US EPA methods, USACE protocol and NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) technical guidance in support of dredge and sediment projects. We analyze sediment, elutriates, pore water, tissue and water matrices.
Our dedicated team of chemists and technicians are familiar with the unique preparation methods and matrices associated with sediment and tissue analysis from marine and freshwater sites. We have the ability to perform standard analytical methods as well as specialty methods such as PCB Congeners, Alkylated PAHs and low-level Mercury on both sediment and water samples.
