State-of-the-art Facilities for Rapid, Accurate Testing

New Facilities

CFA is proud of our facility, designed with increased sample throughput and reduced background in mind. Our 5,170-square-foot laboratory incorporates the latest equipment and instrumentation.

Advanced Instrumentation

CFA has four Waters Auto Spec HRMS Premier Models with MassLynx software. These instruments have Hewlett Packard 7890A GC with Leap GC PAL auto samplers.

Client-Centric Laboratory Information Management System

Our networked Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is designed to be uniquely flexible. Our continually improved system is composed of both an application server and a database server running Oracle.

Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) Capabilities

Capabilities of our LIMS include but are not limited to the following:

Maintains Client and Project Specific Requirements for Each Unique Statement of Work

This includes contract line item analytical tests, price per test, data package specifications, EDD specifications, turnaround times, detection limits, as well as any unique requirements for handling of the samples.

Tracks the Status and Location of Each Sample Container

with bar code identification. Each unique sample container is tracked as it is processed throughout the laboratory from receipt, sample storage and analysis to sample archival and ultimately sample disposal.

Batches Quality Control (QC) Samples

with analytical samples ensuring traceability of QC data, and performs automatic checks to ensure that results fall within the acceptable QC range.

Interfaces Analytical Instrumentation Directly

to the system, improving sample throughput and eliminating the possibility of data input errors.

Generates Customized Reports and Electronic Deliverables

tailored to specific client needs. In fact, we support more than 300 unique EDD formats, including the GIS and SEDD formats.

Tracks Laboratory Capacity, Turnaround Time and Forecasts Workload

in each laboratory department (i.e. Extractions, Clean up, Analysis, Data review etc.).
