About Us

When Alpha Analytical, the 7th largest environmental laboratory in the United States purchased Boston Analytical in 2009, they purchased a small laboratory started by a couple of college roommates over 30 years ago. Originally located in North Reading, Massachusetts that laboratory eventually become the current Boston Analytical located in Salem, New Hampshire.
