Specialty Analytical was established in 1997 by a group of experienced chemists with a common goal - to provide superior client service and unparalleled technical excellence to our colleagues in the consulting, compliance and industrial communities.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Specialty Analytical is currently open for business and accepting samples. For the health and safety of our staff and clients, we have an outdoor kiosk set up to limit the amount of interpersonal contact. We are requiring that all courier pickups are facilitated outdoors with extra precautions. Please call to schedule pickups or for more information.
We are first and foremost an analytical laboratory that constantly looks for the best and most appropriate technological solutions to help our colleagues understand, delineate and mitigate the complex environmental challenges they face each day.
Because we are an employee-owned company each employee is vested in the continuing success of the laboratory and to providing our clients with data and expert opinion of the highest possible quality.
Our facility consists of 12,000 square feet of laboratory and office space located in Clackamas, OR just east of downtown Portland.
The laboratory was designed by chemists and built to allow our scientists to generate data of the highest quality, free from background contamination.
