Wastewater & Groundwater Testing

    Highlighted Applications


    Extraction of Semi-Volatile Analytes from Wastewater

    The US EPA Method 625.1 lists a large number of analytes that need to be tested simultaneously but allows laboratories to extract samples via solid phase extraction. After extraction, the extracts must be dried and concentrated.

    Extraction of Semi-Volatile Compounds in Groundwater

    Compound classes that can be extracted using this method include: polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), chlorinated  hydrocarbons and pesticides, phthalate esters, organophosphate esters, nitrosamines, haloethers, aldehydes, ethers, ketones, anilines, pyridines, quinolines, aromatic nitro compounds, and phenols.

    This application note  is compliant with the US EPA Method 8270E to determine a list of 114 semi-volatile organic compounds.



    Automated Extraction of Organochlorine Pesticides from Whole Water

    Organochlorine pesticides have been used for several applications (especially as insecticides) and were widely dispersed into the environment over the past decades. Because of their chemical structure, they are non-biodegradable, inert, and extremely persistent in the environment.

    This application note follows the requirements of the European Standard EN16693:2015.
