The LLC Laboratory accreditation area widening

We are glad to inform you that LLC Laboratory has passed the procedure of widening the area of accreditation. At the moment, we are a private laboratory with the largest accreditation area in the Russian Federation.

Our accreditation area covers, in particular, the following exclusive and extremely complex analyses:

  • dioxins (PCDD) and furans (PCDF) in atmospheric air, industrial emissions, soil, ground, deposits, waste, natural/drinking/waste water;
  • tin-organic compounds in bottom deposits, soil, ground;
  • polychlorinated terphenyls (PCTs) in deposits, soil, ground, drinking and natural water;
  • microplastic in natural water and bottom deposits;
  • saturated hydrocarbons (alkanes) C9 - C32 in bottom deposits and natural water;
  • chronic and acute toxicity in natural/waste/drinking water, soil, ground, bottom deposits, waste;
  • ethyleneglycol (EG), diethyleneglycol (DEG) in waste and natural water;
  • volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in natural/drinking/waste water;
  • methanol in soil, ground, waste and natural water;
  • polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) in bottom deposits, soil, ground, natural/drinking/waste water, marine fauna, atmospheric air;
  • polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in deposits, soil, ground, natural/drinking water/waste water, marine fauna;
  • mass concentration of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid/2,4-D herbicide in soil, ground, natural and drinking water
  • benzene, toluene, xylenes, styrene in deposits, waste, soil, ground, natural/drinking/waste water;
  • 226Ra, 232Th, 40K, 137Cs, 90Sr in soil, ground, deposits, marine fauna, vegetation;
  • total alpha (Аα) and beta (Аβ) activity, 222Rn (radon), 137Cs, 90Sr in drinking and natural water
  • rodanides in natural/drinking water/waste water;
  • xanthagenates, malathion, fozalon, dimethoate, parathion-methyl, prometryn, simazine, atrazine, and propazine in natural and waste water;
  • chlorophyll A (pigment index) in drinking and natural water, vegetation;
  • pheophetin A, chlorophyll B, chlorophyll C1+C2, carotenoids in natural water and vegetation;
  • a mixture of natural mercaptans in industrial emissions and atmospheric air;
  • mass concentration of ethers in waste and natural water;
  • organic carbon, cyanides, phenols in soil, ground, waste, natural and drinking water;
  • CEC (cation exchange capacity), the amount of water-soluble toxic salts, the degree of base saturation (calculated from the sum of absorbed bases and hydrolytic acidity) in soil and ground;
  • methane, gasoline in soil and ground;
  • acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, methyl acrylate, methyl methacrylate, butyl acrylate, butylmethacrylate in natural water, soil and ground;

Laboratory tests of PCTs and PCBs

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are highly toxic persistent organic environmental pollutants.
The use of these compounds as dielectrics in condensers and coolers in heat exchange systems is a notable technological achievement of industrial chemistry in the mid-twentieth century.

Laboratory tests of dioxins (PCDD) and furans (PCDF)

Dioxins and dioxin-like compounds are recognized "leaders" in toxicity even among the chemical pollutants of the "dirty dozen"("грязная дюжина").
The most famous representative of this group of compounds is 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxin, which has the maximum toxicity and is often referred to as dioxin proper.

Laboratory studies of the micro-plastic

Any particles of a polymeric material (plastic) having a diameter of less than 5 cm, regardless of their composition and origin, are classified as microplastics. Microplastic can be a direct product of industrial production: plastic powders and granules are often included in household chemicals and other chemical products. In other cases microplastic appears in the environment during the destruction of larger "macroscopic" objects.
