Material & Product Testing

The range of analyses brought to our lab defies description. We handle diverse forensic examinations of products, product components, and materials. Each such analysis is so unique that it invariably requires us to develop custom methodologies for everything from sample collection and prep to analysis. Few laboratories can tackle such challenges with the confidence of Adirondack.
