Exceeding End User Satisfaction Is Our Goal

Our goal is to provide the platform that best suits the needs of our clients.  We want to ensure that unique equipment and work flow needs are addressed before the design process begins.  Logical integration of platform design, equipment and personnel is the key to a successful operation.  When contacted, we will provide a selection and needs analysis with a menu of choices that covers:

  • Product Line and Ancillary Support Equipment
  • Layouts
  • Fixed Equipment
  • Optional Equipment
  • Services

Unlimited Laboratory Applications

Here are just a few examples of Self Sufficient Remote Laboratories:

  • Mobile Sample Acquisition and Field Testing Lab
  • Modular for Permanent Lab locations
  • Marine Applications
  • Geotechnical QA/QC – Engineering – Materials Testing
  • Geosciences
  • Environmental Assessment – Air – Water – Soil
  • Drinking Water
  • Wastewater
  • Air Monitoring
  • Wildlife Research
  • Process – Fossil Fuel E&P – Mining- Industrial

Virtually every industry and discipline requires observations and empirical data.  Some challenging operations involve continuous data acquisition of specific parameters and others must have broad capabilities like that of a full service lab.  The locations for these needs vary from the urban environment to extreme remote locations.  There are challenges in outsourcing many analytical services out of regions or even out of countries. GF Environmental Labs offers a valid alternative to meet these challenges and assist you in accomplishing most laboratory functions for continuous motioning or assessment programs.

GF Environmental Labs is meeting this challenge with innovative solutions. We can tailor our platforms to meet any requirements.  Whether servicing a city drinking water supply system, collecting air quality data or performing investigations or remedial site work, GF Environmental Labs will meet those needs.
