Subject Matter Experts

From our core business of providing scientific solutions to our clients, we have developed innovative products. Some are produced internally, and some have arisen from partnerships with other research organizations. 

For example, we build lab software solutions to help manage and streamline your labs data, and environmental testing products for a variety of applications. 

  • IntelliSEM is a powerful automated particle analysis system.
  • ParticleID is  a customizable cloud hosted web application used to identify foreign particulate matter and  assist with root cause investigations. 

Other products we create count particles and help keep the air and environment safe.

RJ Lee Group is a materials analysis laboratory and consulting company which serves many different industries. We offer scientific solutions such as industrial forensics services, laboratory and testing services, litigation support, and laboratory software to many industries:

Beryllium Services and Beryllium Metals Ratio Analysis


Columbia Basin Analytical Laboratories is one of the only commercial labs in the country that offers digestion technology specifically aimed at the dissolution of a particularly dangerous, persistent, and difficult analyte: beryllium – particularly, in the form of High Fired Beryllium Oxide (BeO). Our unique accredited process for industrial hygiene analysis exhibits measurable dissolution of BeO versus the traditional digestion techniques that only provide ~70% recovery on average1. We perform analysis of bulk samples, surface wipe samples, and air samples, all with detection limits more than 10 times lower than required by OSHA regulations.

In addition to our beryllium IH analysis, we are the only commercial laboratory to offer a state-of-the-art beryllium analysis technique known as Beryllium Metals Ratio Analysis (BeMR or “beamer”), which differentiates between naturally occurring mineral beryllium in windblown dust (considered innocuous to human health) and extremely hazardous and harmful “man-made” forms of beryllium. Proprietary digestion, analytical, and interpretive methodology provides a robust and sensitive analysis with detection limits a number of times at or below OSHA exposure limits, while simultaneously identifying the nature of the contamination. The ability to differentiate harmful from inert forms enables IH professionals to better protect their employees and provides an opportunity to reduce wasted time and money spent on unnecessary decontamination.
