YORK Analytical Laboratories


YORK Analytical Laboratories has been in business for 29 years has become one of the premier full-service environmental laboratories in the Northeast. YORK’s charter is to provide superior service that allows their clients to always receive their results in the format and time frame needed for each project.
The YORK team, which is comprised of industry veterans with 15 to 20+ years of experience, knows what it takes to ensure successful results and provides senior level attention to every client email and phone call.


At YORK, almost every project had unique requirements and the CVAA method for mercury analysis posed many challenges. It was hard to comply with rush deliveries. In addition, the chemist’s exposure to acid vapors for mercury analysis increased the overall health risks.
From the customer voice:
“Milestone’s DMA-80 is constantly running. It is greener than CVAA, quicker and provides better results. The lab specialists working on the DMA-80, fully utilize the instrument’s auto blank feature, especially while testing soils. It allows them to achieve analytical blank prior to analysis and get perfect results without any cross-contamination from a previous run. We find the DMA-80 very user-friendly and the open architecture of the instrument is a big plus for our team”

We acquired our first unit about 3 years ago to analyze waste water and soils samples. As we grew, and the number of our projects increased, we purchased our second unit. We are now processing waste waters on one DMA-80 and soils on the other unit. It helps our laboratory prevent cross contamination and minimize the wear on the instrument parts.”
Under the direction of Dr. Robert Bradley, York analyzes many matrices including air, soils, ground water, wastewater and sludge samples. In addition to two DMA-80 instruments, the other in-house equipment includes LC/GC instrumentation for organics work, ICP-MS and ICP-OES for metals testing, and the Milestone ETHOS microwave digestion and extraction systems are used to prepare York’s samples.
