Biotoxin Analysis

Putting Advanced Technology to Work

The Bigelow Analytical Services (BAS) Facility is located on Bigelow Laboratoryís Ocean Science and Education Campus in East Boothbay, Maine. The state≠-of-the-≠art facility provides analytical services to public and private entities. This advanced technology is available to local, national, and international researchers in all fields of study including marine chemistry, aquaculture, pharmacy, and fisheries. Our experienced scientists and technicians provide the highest quality testing in a timely manner.

Biotoxin Analysis: Reducing Biotoxin Risk

BAS uses modern analytical approaches to provide quantitative analysis of biotoxin concentrations in shellfish biomass. Analytical approaches include HPLCPCOX (high-pressure liquid chromatographyñpost-column oxidation) and LC-QQQ-MS (liquid chromatography triple-quadrupole mass-spectrometry).
