EMSL Analytical Awarded EPA World Trade Center Contract
Test and Clean Program Aims to Protect the Health of Workers and Area Residents.
EMSL Analytical, the leader in providing cutting edge laboratory services and products, has been awarded a significant contract from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). EMSL will be providing the agency with analytical services for samples taken in lower Manhattan as part of the Test and Clean Program.
The contract is the result of ongoing efforts to monitor current environmental conditions for residents and workers impacted by the collapse of the World Trade Center towers. Air and microvacuum samples are being collected from multiple sites in the area and are being analyzed for asbestos and man-made vitreous fibers (MMVF) following specialized methodologies via PCM, TEM and SEM.
The contract is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award that has a maximum expected value of $1.5 million with a base contract period of one year and an option to extend the contract for an additional six months. The laboratory analysis has already commenced as of July 2007. EMSL is providing analytical support from their Manhattan laboratory facility in addition to the corporate headquarters situated in New Jersey.
“EMSL Analytical was proud to be the first and primary laboratory for the EPA on the original contract work immediately following the tragic events of 9/11,” reported Robert DeMalo, Senior Vice President, Laboratory Services at EMSL Analytical. “We are honored to be entrusted with this important task of protecting the health of area residents and workers,” DeMalo continued.

The company and its over 400 employees have a 26 year history of providing cutting edge analytical services to government agencies, industry and property owners.
