Our History


The original organizers of Northern Analytical Laboratory saw a lack of analytical services specializing in trace element analysis of solid materials, and acted to fill that need. Their many years of experience in the areas of emission, atomic absorption, inductively coupled plasma-optical emission and spark source mass spectrometries provided the necessary foundation, and the Laboratory opened providing these basic analytical services.

Northern Analytical Laboratories 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 its first glow discharge mass spectrometer (GDMS), the most sensitive and comprehensive technique for the analysis of trace elements in solid materials. (They now have 3). Combustion equipment for the analysis of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and sulfur (in solids) was added in 1985, and in 1999 inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICPMS) was also added to the growing list of analytical services they provide.
