Sample type: Soil, sludge and sediment
Analysis type: Elements
Sample amount: min. 1 g dry matter
Container: 100 ml plastic jar
Method: ICP-MS. Digestion: The sample is dried at 50°C and leaching in 7M HNO3 for sludge/sediment, HNO3/H2O2 for soil. (The concentrations are recalculated to DW 105°C.) For soil, nitric acid/hydrogen peroxide is normally used instead of 7 M nitric acid.
Express: Yes, Expresstariff 1: SameDay +350%; Q07 +400%; Q12 300%; Q17 +200%; 1 day +100%; 2 days +75%; 3 days +40%; 4 days +30%; 5 days +20%
Accreditation: Yes
Remarks: If results are requested within 24 hours, subsampling is made without prior drying and sieving. For non-homogenous samples, drying and sieving is recommended to get a representative subsample. Results can then be delivered within 2 days.
Price for single element analysis: 505 SEK. Price for supplementary element analysis: 190 SEK/element. For available elements within the accreditation and LOQs, please see Supplementary elements.
Sludge samples should be delivered cooled in order to prevent gas evolution.
