Metals, acid anions, acid gases

Metals are associated with a wide range of adverse health effects and are present in the work, home and outdoor environment.

We provide analysis of metals such as lead by ICP-OES in samples of workplace and ambient air, soil, paint, water and other bulk materials. This includes collection and analysis of lead in samples of tap water to meet building regulations for new builds. We also offer analysis for hexavalent chromium.

We use ion chromatography to analyse for common acid anions and gases including hydrochloric, hydrofluoric, nitric and sulphuric acids as well as gases such nitrogen dioxide and ozone. IOM is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory No 0374; for the analysis of a wide range of metals and for acid anions.
