Radiochemistry Analysis & Trace Element Analysis by neutron activation analysis (NAA)

Maxxam is a leader in elemental analysis using radioactivity to analyze both radioactive and non-radioactive materials. Our team of highly experienced scientists has served varied industry sectors throughout Canada for 30 plus years, the United States and the world. We specialize in the analysis of environmental samples for low-level radioactivity and characterization of trace elements by neutron activation analysis (NAA).

Founded in 1983 as Becquerel Laboratories, the Radiochemistry & Trace Element Analysis Laboratory became part of Maxxam in June of 2012. This acquisition has made available an increased level of technical expertise to our clients.

Our expert analyses are typically requested by government regulators and environmental consultants to help measure radioactive contamination that may be present in soil, water, air, sediment, food and consumer products. Trace Element Analysis by neutron activation analysis (NAA) provides multi-element testing ranging from geological surveys to archaeological fingerprinting. Specific elements are also analyzed for product testing and for difficult matrices.
