Analytical Laboratory Operation & Management


Excellence in laboratory operation is a common goal in both research and production support labs, but each type of laboratory experiences different pain points and measurements of excellence.


In research laboratories, funding for sophisticated instrumentation and personnel with advanced degrees and experience is key.  The role of the research lab is to offer advanced testing capabilities to support novel production processes and techniques, with typically no standardized testing protocols to follow.  This is where the experience of the personnel is critical to successful support of the scientists completing the research.


Production support labs, particularly those supporting 24/7 operations, need to focus on maximum sample throughput with minimal variation in methodologies (many analyses guided by standard methods).  Laboratory personnel include typically less experienced operators of laboratory instrumentation for the routine analyses and a chemist or two for the more advanced lab needs, both troubleshooting and method development.


With 16 years' experience operating in and managing both research and production support labs, ALSC has the background to understand the pain points of each laboratory operation and the ability to develop a roadmap for achieving, and protocols for maintaining, maximum operational efficiency.  Let us help your laboratory achieve and maintain maximum excellence in operation and support.

Sales & Business Development


ALSC provides a combined 40+ year experience in capital equipment sales & business development activities in Oil & Gas, Petrochemical, Specialty Chemical, Government, and Food & Agriculture markets.  The markets vary not only in what they produce, but in how they receive visitors, evaluate new equipment and procedures, and adopt and train laboratory personnel on new equipment and/or methods.  In particular, the Specialty Chemical and somewhat the Petrochemical markets vary dramatically from Oil & Gas.  Many of the methods in Specialty Chemical facilities, even those providing 24/7 production support, are proprietary and not guided by any standards body such as ASTM.  These clients are likely to purchase an instrument based only on the instrument specifications, not because a particular standard body requires it in a method.


ALSC can help your Sales & Business Development personnel establish sales and market development plans for new clients within core markets, new clients within new markets and/or existing clients within new markets.

Testing Protocols, Operation, and Maintenance Programs


Every market has a range of research and production support laboratories with various standards bodies and/or testing protocols guiding their principal operation, particularly in the production support labs.  Whether methodology is established and controlled by standards governing bodies, or by internal testing protocols, the laboratory itself can only experience operational excellence by establishing/following testing protocols, including proper instrument operational procedures and methodologies.  Our combined 70+ years' experience in Analytical Chemistry and Manufacturing Engineering across a wide range of instrumentation types and with various manufacturers presents a unique opportunity to evaluate and define any gaps within current testing protocols for both research and production support operations.  Particularly in new markets such as chemical recycling, it is important to have a "big picture" view of both feedstock and final product requirements and to ensure proper analytical testing for each stage of the process.


ALSC can help your laboratory develop partnerships for both instrumentation and personnel support for any one-off or short-term projects where expensive capital equipment investment and/or additional laboratory personnel is not feasible.


Testing Protocols, Operation and Maintenance Programs include:

  • gas chromatography (GC)
  • liquid chromatography (LC)
  • gel permeation chromatography (GPC)
  • spectroscopy (AA, GFAA, ICP, UV/Vis)
  • thermal analysis (TGA, DSC)
  • physical properties instrumentation and methdologies
