Jacksonville, Jason Gebhardt, Lab Manager

Opened in 1994, the Jacksonville lab started with just two chemists doing work on UST sites and quick turnaround remediation projects. The lab now has 35 employees working on projects from wastewater to Superfund sites. The lab is approved under TNI / NELAP, DoD ELAP and ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Accredited Programs and holds a USDA permit to import Foreign Soils. The 8,400 square-foot building was custom designed by AEL and specifically engineered to serve as an environmental testing laboratory and as the corporate headquarters. It encompasses state-of-the-art laboratory design and instrumentation and offers sampling and courier services. The lab holds one of the largest approved analyte lists in Florida, with in-house analysis that includes TRPH Speciation (EPH/VPH), oxygenates, low-level mercury, dissolved gases by RSK 175, full SOC list, herbicides, and pesticides.
