SGS Sydney and Perth offer the complete package of SVOCs from a single 110mL bottle. This includes the phenoxy acid herbicide suite and synthetic pyrethroids in addition to the classical suites of analytes such as TRH, PAH, OC/OP/PCB and Speciated Phenols. It also includes the largest suite of EPA8270 compounds offered to date in Australia.

For clients this will result in a cost reduction in sampling and courier costs, significantly improve health and safety with smaller eskies required for the reduced sample bottle volumes and a large reduction in the storage space required. In many cases it will be easier to collect cleaner water samples which will improve overall data quality.

In addition there is scope for samples to be re-extracted to confirm positives preventing clients from having to re-sample. At present, this is only offered by SGS.

Additional Benefits Include:

  • Improved health, safety and reduced environmental impacts (80% reduction in solvent use).
  • Being able to extract more samples in the same batch.
  • Faster extractions (50%) resulting in faster turnaround times.
  • Increased solvent to sample ratio extraction.
  • Larger laboratory sample capacity.
