Effective immediately, following our latest innovation project, instead of requiring one or even two 1 Litre sample bottles for Phenoxy Herbicides water testing (E706A), now a single 100 mL amber bottle is all that is required (the same bottle type currently being used for our new OCP and PCB method – see EnviroMail 14). Benefits include smaller and fewer sample bottles to label and fill, lower manual handling loads, reduced shipping costs, greater sampling efficiency (especially for low flow groundwater wells), plus significant quality benefits.
Our NEW accredited1 Phenoxy Herbicides method (E706A) with a 100 mL sample size is now offered by ALS Waterloo. The data quality of this method is simply exceptional.
Phenoxy Herbicide Background
What This Means For ALS Clients
Ontario Reg. 169/03, the BC Contaminated Sites Regulation (CSR), Alberta Tier 1 (ABT1), and CCME each have unique criteria for Phenoxy Herbicides. ALS Canada has developed a Routine method that meets O. Reg. 169/03 and the lowest BC CSR criteria with a 100 mL sample, sufficient for initial and duplicate analyses.
To meet the lowest ABT1 and CCME levels, our Trace method employs an additional concentration step using the same 100 mL sample bottle.
