In addition to extraction methods stipulated in standards from ISO or EPA, certain matrices or targeted compounds requires special methods to ensure a representative analytical sample is prepared.
Special leaching methods for both metals and organic compounds may also be required. Leaching methods are often developed with natural processes in mind and are developed to mimic what potentially can happen in a normal environment.
ALS laboratories offer a full range of extraction and leaching methods. In addition to the accredited standard methods, numerous in-house validated methods are available upon request. When required, our chemists will work in close cooperation with clients to develop target or project specific methods.
New leaching methods have been developed in collaboration with the academia and when required our chemists will work in close cooperation with clients to develop target or project specific methods.
