PCR    Mobile Laboratories

PCR Mobile Laboratories (PCR) has been certified by the California Public Utilities Commission as a Women Business Enterprise (von: 15060179) as well as the State of California Department of General Services as a Small Business Enterprise that has provided sampling and analytical services to a diverse blend of environmental consulting firms and government agencies since 1987. These services have included the following: ​


  • Lead sampling and analyses  in soils and paints using State of California Certified Lead  Inspectors and Sampling Technicians.
  • ​Field analyses by EPA Method 6200 of lead and other metals in soils  using field portable X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF).
  • ​​Sub-slab vapor probe installation through all types of ground and floor covering.
  • ​Sampling of soils and soil gas using specially designed extreme limited access pneumatic, electric and hydraulically driven direct push sampling equipment.
  • ​Indoor/outdoor ambient air sampling and analyses.
  • Indoor air quality investigations.
  • ​Asbestos sampling and abatement oversight using State of California Certified Asbestos Consultants (CACs) and Site Surveillance Technicians (SSTs).
  • Comprehensive ​Lead Based Paint/Asbestos/Other Hazardous Materials building surveys.​

​It is notable that analyses completed using XRF in the field generally allow the data to be available essentially real time. This information can be used to optimize decisions regarding the options for disposal and/or the need for further actions such as excavations or dredging.  All crews are 40 hour Hazwopper trained with current refreshers.
