ALS provides a full range of environmental testing services, including the analysis of soil, sediment, water, air, and many more matrices. Analytical laboratory testing services for these matrices includes routine, trace and ultra-trace level organics (volatile and semi volatile, herbicides, pesticides, PCBs and disinfection byproducts), metals and nutrients, inorganic non-metallics, microbiological, biological, toxicological parameters, particle sizing and radio nucleotides. In addition to the routine services, we have expertise in many specialty testing areas. Contact your laboratory, or see the services offered in your geographical region for more information.
Data derived from ALS laboratories is typically used in the following applications:
- Environmental baseline and compliance monitoring programs
- Site assessment and remediation
- Sediment assessment for dredging
- Drinking, catchment, recycled and desalination water monitoring
- Occupational / industrial hygiene
- Waste characterization
- Other disciplines requiring a sophisticated analytical approach
Analytical methods are based on well-established, internationally-recognized procedures such as those published by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the American Public Health Association (APHA), as well as local country standards. Research and Development teams throughout the division are challenged to deliver on specific methodologies, which may be unique to specific client applications.
