The original organizers of Northern Analytical Laboratory worked as analytical chemists in the semiconductor, aerospace and primary metals industries. They saw a need for a laboratory specializing in trace element analysis in solid materials. Their many years of experience in the areas of emission, atomic absorption, inductively coupled plasma-optical emission and spark source mass spectromertries provided the necessary foundation, and the Laboratory opened providing these basic services.
NAL was founded in 1980 and subsequently incorporated in New Hampshire in January of 1981. The Laboratory, originally located in Amherst, NH is now in Merrimack, NH.
In 1986 NAL acquired it's first glow discharge mass spectrometer (GDMS), the most sensitive and comprehensive technique for the analysis of trace elements in solid materials. (We now have three). Combustion equipment for the analysis of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and sulfur (in solids) was added in 1995, and in 1999 inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICPMS) was also added.
