- Career Opportunities Chemical measurements are essential in many different fields such as environmental science, geology, medicine and biology. Important decisions are often based on these measurements, for example, whether food is suitable for consumption, whether goods can be sold, or how a patient should be treated. In addition, chemical measurements are often mandatory in support of legislation (related to health care and trade), production processes and societal problems.
