Vista Analytical Laboratory is wholly dedicated to the ultra-trace analysis of halogenated persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and other emerging contaminants. We continue to operate under the same credo it was founded under over 30 years ago as ALTA Analytical–to meet or exceed the most rigorous regulatory requirements with experience, expertise and responsiveness unmatched in the environmental industry.

That was the sole focus when we built our custom-designed laboratory in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in 1990, and it continues to be the primary focus today.

Housed in a custom-designed 9,000 square foot facility, our laboratory features large log-in and sample storage areas including walk-in freezers and refrigerators. Two separate preparation laboratories maximize throughput and minimize sample cross contamination.  The instrument laboratory features state-of-the-art magnetic sector instruments. And the facility’s open floor plan ensures results are not invalidated or adversely affected by environmental conditions. Every detail has been addressed to assure results are precise and delivered in a timely manner.
