Years of Success & Mission, Vision, Values

When Results Matter Most: NSL Analytical provides almost 80 years of accurate and reliable test results.

Beginning in 1945, National Spectrographic Laboratories, the forerunner of today’s NSL Analytical Services, Inc. (NSL), was founded to meet the needs of the chemical laboratory industry by manufacturing spectrographic instruments and other quality test equipment. As NSL sold their instruments in the industry, they found out that customers became more interested in testing their materials. Through the years, NSL has evolved from an equipment and standards producer to a materials and environmental products test facility, to a highly regarded professional organization that meets the requirements of an ever-changing material testing market.
