In selecting a ‘supplier’ for analysis of dioxins & furans and dioxin-like PCB congeners, it is important to realize that services differ from lab to lab in terms of analytical solutions provided, instrumentation used and the expertise of the people involved in the project. High Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HRMS) is the analytical technique of choice for detecting and measuring these persistent organic contaminants at ultra trace levels.
Maxxam is recognized internationally for our ultra trace analytical capabilities – driven by the expertise of our people and our commitment to quality. Our Mississauga (Campobello) facility is accredited by the US Department of Defense (DoD), The NELAC Institute (TNI/NELAP), and many individual US states, and have successfully completed projects for numerous U.S.EPA and DoD projects.

Recently, Maxxam presented a Continuous Improvement “Kaizen” award for productivity improvement to this group. The award was presented in recognition of process improvements made using a Restek Rtx®-Dioxin2 column, which resulted in increased instrument capacity.
