Pace® Environmental Testing Services for Government

 Pace® offers a comprehensive suite of environmental testing services in support of environmental monitoring, regulatory compliance, and public health initiatives. We leverage the most advanced analytical techniques and adhere to stringent quality standards to help government agencies and related organizations make informed decisions that protect public health, preserve natural resources, and ensure a sustainable future. The reliability and accuracy of our results combined with our commitment to timely service, have made Pace® a trusted partner for public sector environmental efforts for decades.

Ready to Get Started?


When disaster strikes and materials of concern are released into the environment, the Pace® Emergency Response Team is ready to respond 24/7/365. Leveraging our nationwide laboratory network, we can immediately mobilize a team to begin transporting and processing samples for quick, critical decision-making.

Setting the Pace® in Environmental Standards

Pace® regularly collaborates with government agencies, including the Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Transportation (DOT), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and others, to provide method validation, testing services, and expertise. For example, we’ve been selected multiple times to help develop and validate environmental test methods for contaminants such as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). Our team of explosives experts is often called on to support the DOD’s Military Munitions Response Program (MMRP). We also work closely with state agencies as they work to define, implement, and enforce local and nationwide rules and regulations regarding environmental contaminants.

Need Help with Staffing and Lab Management?

Government-run laboratories play a pivotal role in advancing scientific knowledge, public health, and national security. For various reasons, such as budget cuts, hiring freezes, or scarcity of technical talent, staffing can often be an issue. Laboratory instruments also need regular maintenance and calibration to ensure accuracy. Defensible research often requires facilities that have been validated against specific standards and monitored to ensure adherence to those standards.

Pace® offers a robust portfolio of professional laboratory solutions designed to help government laboratories bridge the talent gap, ensure the deliverability of reliable results, and keep their critical work moving forward.
