Environmental Testing – Metals

Sample preparation involves the release of pollutants into an inorganic acid through a digestion process. This process dissolves or strips away the sample matrix, leaving the metal content in a solution that is compatible with inductively coupled plasma (ICP) or atomic adsorption (AA) instrumentation.
 

  • Sample Collection
  • Sample Preparation
  • Sample Analysis
 
Preserve sample integrity during transport
to the laboratory, and storage prior to sample preparation.
Isolate analytes from the matrix; deliver in a configuration compatible with the sample
analysis technique.
Obtain qualitative and quantitative results for environmental pollutants using various instrumentation.
