Reliable solutions to help environmental laboratories make informed decisions

Cutting-edge environmental testing workflows require liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) technology to overcome the drawbacks of traditional testing methods.

The drawbacks of traditional testing methods include extensive sample preparation protocols, lack of sensitivity and limits on the number and classes of compounds targeted per analysis. This is where LC-MS/MS technology can help. It is one of the most effective approaches for detecting harmful environmental contaminants, so you have accurate data behind you to invoke actions to prevent adverse effects on sensitive ecosystems and human communities.

From the screening and identification of novel species to the quantification of low-level regulated contaminants, LC-MS/MS environmental solutions include methods for identifying common environmental contaminants such as:

  • Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and their derivatives
  • Residual pesticides or pharmaceuticals in soil, drinking water or wastewater samples
  • Microcystins and other toxic aquatic substances
