Alloway Lima is close to completing the expansion of its facility with the addition of laboratory space to support its growing metals department. ICP-MS capability is being added in Lima. This capability will be combined with current ICP and Graphite Furnace instrumentation, providing three different technologies to perform metals analysis. These instruments enable Alloway to continue to be an industry leader in metals analysis by meeting reporting level requirements, minimizing common interferences, and decreasing analysis time.
Every year, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation holds Great Strides benefit walks across the country to raise funding for research. The Johnny Appleseed Farm Park in Lima, Ohio was the site for one of this year’s benefit walks. On Saturday, September 7th, representatives from Alloway and many others came to support finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. The 2013 Lima Great Strides event raised over $13,000 to help change the prognosis for people with Cystic Fibrosis.
On July 31st, 2013 the Ottawa River Coalition hosted the 2013 River Event as part of their summer youth program. Alloway had the privilege of assisting with this important program by leading a session on water quality testing.

(For an up-close look at the day’s activities, see the pictures displayed in the sidebar of this page.)
