From Life Sciences
At ALS Environmental, we provide a full range of environmental analytical testing services, specializing in the analysis of soil, sediment, water (raw, waste, drinking, catchment, recycled, saline, product), leachates, dust, air (indoor, stack, ambient), gas, biota, industrial hygiene, and radiochemistry. 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 nuclides. In addition to the routine services, we have expertise in many specialty testing areas.
Data derived from ALS Environmental 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.
