Testing of waters
Most of the methods we use in sample pre-treatment and analytical services are internationally standardized. To ensure high-quality results we recommend contacting the laboratory to establish a sustainable sampling plan.
- Methods ICP-MS (SFS-EN ISO 17294-2) / ICP-OES (SFS-EN ISO 11885) can be used for determining concentrations of elements dissolved in water and also for the mercury method CVAFS (SFS-EN ISO 17852:en modified,).
- Storm or process waters
- Natural surface and ground waters
- Method SFS-EN ISO 15587-2 is used for the determination acid-soluble elements . This method is the “overall analysis” of a water sample and includes the decomposition of the sample with nitric acid.
