Please Welcome Jamie Fox to BRL!

We are thrilled to announce that Jamie Fox joined Brooks Rand Labs as our Technical Sales Manager. As a key member of our Business Development team, Jamie is responsible for identifying and capturing new opportunities that require trace metals and metals speciation testing. He works closely with our business development and project management teams to ensure that the client's objectives are met and the best possible analytical solution is selected for each project. With eight years of experience in environmental and pharmaceutical laboratories as an analytical chemist and another eight years as a laboratory auditor and data validator, Mr. Fox has the breadth of technical knowledge and experience to assist our clients with their most challenging projects. Despite the fact that he is often seen out on the road at conferences and meetings, he still loves to travel in his spare time with his wife, hang out with his two rescue hounds, or take a hike in the mountains near his home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Welcome Jamie!

Sequential Extraction for Arsenic Speciation in Soils
It has become increasingly common for risk assessment and treatability studies to require arsenic speciation data to determine the potential mobility of this toxic contaminant at varying sites. Looking at arsenite [As(III)] and arsenate [As(V)] values can be helpful for these studies; however, this approach can only provide a snapshot of how much arsenic is more
