Mukang Labs, Inc. is full-service analytical and research laboratory located in a beautiful new building in Pasco, Washington State and certified by Washington State Department of Ecology (DOE) and the National Forage Testing Association, specializing in soil, plant, feed, water, and fertilizer/manure analysis. Mukang Labs provide multi-disciplinary analytical and research services for farming/garden growers, fertilizer dealers, environmental/industrial consultants, and research professionals worldwide. These services are focus on agriculture for soil fertility, plant nutrition, substance toxicity, forage quality evaluation, and industry for the investigation and resolution of environmental issues and regulatory testing. With an expansive array of advanced technology, newly equipped state-of-the-art instruments, combined with years of experience, we are able to provide our customers with accurate and reliable testing results in a timely manner and at an effective cost.
Our mission is to provide our clients with the highest quality analytical results that are both scientifically valid and legally defensible by strictly following the Quality Assurance/ Quality Control program through a well-informed, well-trained, and responsible laboratory staff with academic knowledge, who is dedicated to excellence in each step of the analytical process, from sample receipt to the final reporting of results in a clean working environment and pressure-free atmosphere. We believe our clients will develop long-term relationships with us when we, with respect and mutual trust, deliver the highest quality service possible, meeting or exceeding their expectations of high quality results in the time and manner that meets their needs.
Our normal routine sample turn-around time is 24 hours for soil, plant and feed samples and 3-7 working days for water samples. Rush services for water samples with 1-3 business days can be provided at an additional charge (50% surcharge).
Our staff is comprised of experienced top scientists, well-trained technicians and support personnel with several Ph.D., M.Sc. and B. Sc. degrees in soil chemistry, environmental chemistry, agricultural chemistry, agronomy, computer science, nuclear engineering, and marine engineering.
The key chemist and CEO, Dr. Chen Liu, of Mukang Labs has over 25-year international experience in soil, plant/feed, and water analysis and is a top scientist with extraordinary ability in the sciences as showed by her nationally and internationally recognized accomplishments in soil science and agricultural chemistry, especially in environmental soil chemistry. She has authored 31 peer-reviewed scientific and scholarly publications and 28 presentations on national and international scientific conferences. Her pivotal observations and cutting-edge findings in environmental/soil chemistry has been published in top ranking journals in soil science and related fields such as Soil Science Society of America Journal, Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, Journal of Colloid and Interface Science, Organic Geochemistry, Soil Science, Geoderma, Canadian Journal of Soil Science, Soil Science and Plant Nutrition.
Due to Dr. Liu’s excellent knowledge in soil science and agricultural chemistry and her nationally and internationally recognized achievements, she has been invited by editors to review many manuscripts submitted to scientific journals. These include Canadian Journal of Soil Science, Water, Air and Soil Pollution, Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, Clays and Clay Minerals, Environmental Pollution, Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Journal of Environmental Quality, and Pedosphere.
“Among all (50) my students and associates over a period of 40 years in my professional career, Dr. Liu is in the top 2% in terms of academic preparation, creativity, intellectual vitality, judgment, industry, and overall accomplishments”, Professor P. M. Huang of University of Saskatchewan, Canada said, who is the former Chair of the Soil Chemistry Division of the Soil Science Society of America and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the World Innovation Foundation, the American Society of Agronomy, the Soil Science Society of America, and the Canadian Society of Soil Science.
“Dr. Liu is a scientific talent of the first magnitude”, Dr. S. Goldberg from United States Department of Agriculture stated, who was Chair of the Soil Chemistry Division of the Soil Science Society of America, a Fellow of the Soil Science Society of America.
“The sheer volume of Dr. Chen Liu’s achievements and the importance of her work in developing new and innovative research directions in environmental protection and food security mark her as an outstanding researcher who has risen to the very top of her field”, Dr. A. R. Mermut also said, who is the Division Chair of the World Soil Science Union and a Fellow of the American Society of Agronomy, the Soil Science Society of America, and the Canadian Society of Soil Science.
“Dr. Liu is an outstanding, innovative soil scientist with extraordinary abilities as indicated by a spectacular record of groundbreaking achievements in the field of soil chemistry and soil fertility”, Dr. A. Violante, a Professor from Italy and a Fellow of the Soil Science Society of America stated.
