Cinnaminson, NJ – WEBWIRE

EMSL Analytical, Inc.ís corporate headquarters in Cinnaminson, New Jersey is now accredited by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) Industrial Hygiene Laboratory Accreditation Program (IHLAP) for laboratory testing of methamphetamine by High-Performance Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (HPLC/MS) using the modified NIOSH 9111 method.

Chemicals commonly used in the production of methamphetamine (meth) include flammable and volatile solvents such as methanol, ether, benzene, methylene chloride and trichloroethane. Other chemicals may include muriatic acid, sodium hydroxide, table salt and ammonia.†Meth production has been identified in everything from hotel rooms and recreational vehicles to apartments and luxury suburban homes. Many of these toxic chemicals can easily contaminate carpeting, wallboard, ceiling tiles, furniture and fabrics that absorb spilled or vaporized chemicals. As a result, thereís a significant health risk to anyone near the production of meth or future occupants of the property or vehicle long after.

ďMeth residues are not always visible to the naked eye,Ē said Joseph Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. ďTherefore, laboratory testing is an ideal way for property owners and managers as well as potential future tenants to determine if there are meth residues risks in a property. Now, EMSL Cinnaminson can help to test and identify residues left on surfaces in homes, rental units and other indoor environments.Ē
