History

Materials and Chemistry Laboratory, Inc. (MCLinc) is an employee owned small business located in East Tennessee Technology Park’s Heritage Center offering specialty laboratory analysis and consulting services. In April 1998, as part of the DOE reindustrialization initiative, this research group commercialized the materials and chemistry laboratory they had operated as a government support facility. While expertise in uranium chemistry and materials characterization gained by this original employee group as an internal DOE lab constitutes a core competency, capabilities in environmental forensics, technology development, nanotechnology, industrial hygiene support, mercury studies, carbon fiber technology, and catalyst chemistry have been added since commercialization. Today, MCLinc is a commercial applied research and specialty analytical laboratory and consulting organization dedicated to providing services to commercial and governmental customers.
