Our PartnersChemistry Matters has developed partnerships with companies and organizations to enhance the benefits we provide to our clients. Below, you can read about our partner relationships with AGAT Laboratories Ltd, Firestorm Consulting Group Inc., COGRAD, Mount Royal University, the University of Alberta, the University of Windsor, Statvis, and SME Response Group.
As chemists working in the consulting world, we sometimes require custom analyses to meet our clients specialized needs. Chemistry Matters Inc. has developed a joint partnership agreement with AGAT laboratories Inc to provide these analyses as required. In addition, Chemistry Matters is proud to team with AGAT laboratories Inc. to be providing environmental forensics analysis of petroleum products and has developed an arson investigation laboratory.
Environmental forensics analysis of petroleum products allows Chemistry Matters to identify and distinguish between very similar petroleum products ranging from refined products (gasolines or diesels) to crude oil (from similar reservoirs). We use petroleum biomarkers and diagnostic ratios of marker compounds coupled as required with advanced statistical analysis to solve our clients most complex problems. Contact us to see what analysis we analysis we can provide to help determine the source of petroleum products.
The arson laboratory specializes in the analysis for presence and absence of ignitable liquid residues (ILRs), determination of the type of ignitable liquid used in the arson and can conduct specialized forensics analysis to determine the source of the liquids (commercial product). Chemistry Matters Inc. provides the chemistry consulting involved in the ILR analysis while AGAT provides all the laboratory supplies and services to conduct the analysis. The result is a seamless approach with unparalleled chemical analysis with advanced chemistry consulting services.
Chemistry Matters Inc is a proud Official Affiliate of FireStorm Consulting Group Inc. FireStorm Consulting Group Inc. is a leader in Forensic Fire | Arson | Explosion Investigation as well as a premier provider of Emergency and Protective Services consultation. From first responder training through to policy development to origin & cause investigations, their network of staff are able to tackle any sized projects.
“FireStorm Consulting Group Inc.’s Fire | Arson | Explosion Investigation Division began working with Chemistry-Matters in early 2015 for forensic testing and analysis of fire debris collected as evidence in fire origin and cause investigations. Dr. Sandau’s team have proven themselves to be reliable, thorough professionals dedicated to employing best practices and methods in forensic testing and analysis of ignitable liquid residue (ILR) in fire debris and organic samples provided to them as part of forensic evidence collection by FireStorm investigators. FireStorm is confident in the results being provided and the methods employed by Chemistry-Matters. Dr. Sandau and his team have gone so far as to provide FireStorm Investigators a better understanding through educating of the testing process and methods used by Chemistry-Matters by taking a literal a walk-through of the laboratory and equipment used, including the interpretation process of results generated from testing. FireStorm Consulting Group Inc. is looking forward continued success in our relationship with Chemistry-Matters.”
