ELEMENT SPECIATION ANALYSIS

ELEMENT SPECIATION ANALYSIS

ALS Scandinavia offer a wide range of element speciation analyses by LC-HG-ICPMS and GC-ICP-MS. Our laboratory has more than a decade of experience in element speciation testing and is specialized in measuring the most toxic arsenic (As), mercury (Hg), selenium (Se) and organotin (OTC) compounds. ALS Scandinavia offers accredited element speciation analyses of:

  • Soil
  • Sediment
  • Sludge
  • Water
  • Biota
  • Food and feed
  • Blood, urine and serum

Testing capabilities:

  • Arsenite, arsenate, dimethylarsinate & monomethylarsonate
  • Methylmercury
  • Selenite & selenate
  • MBT, DBT, TBT, TTBT, MOT, DOT, TCHT, MPhT, DPhT & TPhT

By combining our cutting-edge technology, experience and in-house research, ALS can offer you the latest in the field of metals speciation. Please read more about our element speciation analyses or contact us for more information.

WHY ELEMENT SPECIATION?

The toxicity, bioavailability and mobility of certain elements are to a large extent determined by the form in which it is present. Consequently, a metal speciation analysis can provide valuable extra information compared to traditional total concentrations. Over the last few years, new legislation and guidelines have also started introducing threshold values for organotin compounds, inorganic arsenic, methyl mercury and more.

Accredited analysis of 67 elements in polymeric materials

28 apr 2016

ALS is proud to present our new analytical package I-5. The new, accredited method includes 67 elements and can be applied to polymeric materials such as plastic, textiles and ion-exchange resin. The digestion is performed by SRC (single reaction chamber) technique, UltraClave. This technique allows a digestion at very high temperature and pressure resulting in excellent recovery, even for highly resistent materials.

The implementation of our UltraClave puts ALS Scandinavia in... Read more »
