Phenomenex Forms Phenova - A Certified Reference Materials Company
News Aug 24, 2012
Phenomenex Inc. has announced the creation of a new company - Phenova, Inc. - which culminates the integration and expansion of Colorado-based Wibby Environmental.
Phenova provides proficiency standards and testing services to environmental laboratories working under strict regulatory guidelines.
Many of the EPA-regulated methods involve HPLC or GC, for which Phenomenex is a major supplier of media and columns.
Phenomenex and Phenova together now offer a total solution to environmental customers such as water municipalities, agricultural companies and contract laboratories.
The company initially serves customers in the United States, with plans to expand internationally to meet country-specific environmental regulatory requirements.
Phenova provides standards that simulate a laboratory’s typical samples. Customers use these standards to perform proficiency tests and demonstrate conformance with regulatory guidelines.
Phenova delivers results directly to the regulatory agencies and archives test information for customers to use in creating internal performance metrics.
The company also offers standards that help laboratories internally monitor their data quality, as well as products for rapid retesting.
Phenomenex is investing in a modern 30,000 square foot modern facility with equipment that will triple the laboratory space in Colorado to accommodate growth.
A new interactive website is now online, offering easy access to Phenova products and services. An innovative data reporting tool - PT Manage™ - simplifies data entry and enables users to easily generate insightful reports.
Demonstrating its dedication to providing high-quality products, the company has received additional quality accreditations including ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO Guide 34.
Jason Campbell, who has been with Phenomenex for 15 years, has been named president and general manager of Phenova. “We have nearly doubled the company’s staff since the acquisition process began, and we have made significant investments in our analytical resources,” Campbell comments.
According to Fasha Mahjoor, CEO of Phenomenex, “The acquisition is part of our growth strategy, which centers on providing total solutions to the application areas we serve. This environmental product portfolio is a natural fit with Phenomenex’s offering and we serve the same customers.”

Biomedical Engineering and Chemical Engineering Professors Bob Tilton and Todd Przybycien recently co-authored a paper with Ph.D. students Brittany Nordmark and Toni Bechtel, and alumnus John Riley, further refining a process that could soon help provide clean water to many in water-scarce regions. The process, created by Tilton’s former student and co-author Stephanie Velegol, uses sand and plant materials readily available in many developing nations to create a cheap and effective water filtration medium, termed “f-sand.”READ MORE
