Características y beneficios

We have a vast portfolio of environmental PT schemes with "fit-for-purpose" samples to help you meet the needs of the laboratory.

Our proficiency testing (PT) program is a benchmark to:

  • provide staff with an insight into their laboratory′s performance, to verify the accuracy and reliability of their testing process
  • provide a comparison of performance with that of other laboratories, nationally and internationally
  • test and educate staff, provide a better understanding of the impact of incorrect results and identify areas where there may be problems
  • provide an independent evaluation of laboratory performance
  • demonstrate to clients, colleagues and accreditation bodies that there is a commitment to quality

Nota de preparación


  • This concentrate sample is formulated for the determination of TPH in water by GC - FID/PID, IR or gravimetric methods.
  • TPH consists of a light petroleum hydrocarbon (>10 to <36).
  • This solvent has the proper boiling point and IR spectra as to not interfere with the methods.
  • Handle the concentrate in a properly ventilated hood.

Sample Preparation

  • Transfer exactly 1 mL of concentrate directly to the separatory funnel.
  • Add 1 L of reagent grade DI water to the separatory funnel.
  • Considere this as your sample for test.
  • Proceed with analysis.
  • TPH is reported in mg/L.
  • Assume sample volume is 1 L for calculation purposes.

Almacenamiento y estabilidad
