Detroit Lakes (KDLM) – RMB Environmental Laboratories Inc., a Detroit Lakes based privately owned analytical laboratory, has earned state accreditation as a full-service organic water testing provider.
“The organics certification opens up a lot of doors,” said Robert Borash, RMB’s founder and CEO. “It provides our clients the opportunity to use more of our capabilities, instead of using multiple companies to meet their needs.” Parameters that RMB is certified for include metals, wet chemistry, inorganics, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs), and waste characterization methods. Sample matrices that RMB is NELAP-accredited for include potable water (drinking water), non-potable water (groundwater, wastewater, surface water), solid (soil, sediment, wipes), and hazardous waste.
Borash said RMB can test water from nearly every source as well as provide on-site monitoring, consulting and data-management for clients ranging from municipalities to Minnesota’s most prominent corporate giants to lake associations to private property owners.
“Everything from household safe drinking water, surface water assessments, to industrial and hazardous waste characterization can now be even more supported by RMB’s expanded network of state certified laboratories,” he said.
Borash said environmental testing is an ever evolving and growing industry, and RMB is responding to its clients’ needs as quickly as possible.
“Keeping up with the demand for our services is never going to stop,” Borash said. “The sky is the limit right now. It’s really positioning us to be the leader in the industry.”
RMB headquarters is located in Detroit Lakes, MN, with additional state certified laboratories in Hibbing, MN and Bloomington, MN.
