Dr. Keith Levine is an expert in the development and application of novel analytical methods for the determination of metals and metal species in support of environmental, pharmaceutical, and health-related projects. As an analytical chemist, he has more than 20 years of project management and research experience, and currently directs a large, diverse team of analytical scientists. Dr. Levine leads his team with a vision of delivering collaborative, integrated analytical approaches to solve complex challenges. His team has an extensive track record of delivering quality, scientifically-defensible results, and has completed many projects subject to regulatory compliance, including Good Laboratory Practices (GLP).

Dr. Levine's current work is focused on the development and application of analytical methods for the determination of environmentally prevalent chemicals in a variety of environmental and biological media. These methods utilize numerous instrumental analysis techniques, including inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), X-ray fluorescence (XRF), and ultra-performance liquid chromatography (UPLC). As a precursor to analysis, these techniques typically require sample preparation procedures in a Class 100 or a Class 10,000 cleanroom.
