These compounds are defined as chemicals that have the potential of causing adverse ecological and human health effects. Emerging contaminants have not been studied to the same degree as the traditional compounds included in environmental investigation and hence less is known about their sources, mobility and toxicology.
ALS has a strong culture of innovation and this culture, combined with strong technical knowledge, has given the company the enviable reputation as a world leader in this segment.
While analytical methods vary between compounds, the common theme for analysis of EC's is a demand for ultra-trace level detection limits. To achieve this, ALS is using the latest instrumentation operated by some of the most experienced and knowledgeable chemists in the industry.
