Laboratory and Custom Synthesis

Our extensive, two-story laboratory provides on-site analytical services.

Laboratory instruments and test methods are validated and GMP compliant. In addition to quality control testing, we offer custom analytical services including material analyses, test method development and calibration of instruments and gauges. Our lab can perform tests utilizing published methods, our customers' methods, or we can develop and validate new methods. Lab-scale custom syntheses are also available. While we specialize in nitration syntheses, we have capabilities for syntheses of other specialty energetic materials, including azidifications.
