Our standard package of elements includes:
Ag, Al, As, Ba, Be, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mg, Mn, Ni, P, Pb, S, Sb, Se, Sn, Ti, V, Zn.
Extra elements can be added upon request.
Our metal scan by ICP follows NIOSH 7300 method. Our well established analytical procedure has been tested using a wide variety of materials.
CASL has been a member of the Canadian Association for Laboratory Accreditation (CALA) since 1997 and has participated since that time with excellent results in proficiency testing by CALA for Metals on Air Filters and High Range Metals in Water. CASL laboratory has been found to comply with criteria and standards established by the Association.
Note: Bulks samples are analyzed using the same digestion method.
