Analysis parameters

Chemical, physical and biological analysis

We can only offer a brief overview here of our analysis spectrum. If you have a specific query, please contact us to find out if we are able to meet your request.

Overview of some important parameters

  • Perfluorinated compounds (e.g., PFOS, PFOA,PCB, Dioxin)
  • Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAK)
  • Bisphenol A, F, S and relevant derivates
  • Alkylphenols (e.g. nonylphenols, octylphenols)
  • Aliphatic und aromatic amines
  • Phthalates and other softeners, softening oil
  • Dicarbonic acids, diols etc.
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOC, SVOC, MVOC)
  • Chlorinated hydrocarbons (e.g. CKW, THM)
  • Pesticides (e.g. herbicides, insecticides)
  • Heavy metals (e.g. Pb, Cd, Hg, Ni), metalloids (e.g. As), elemental analysis
  • Cations (z.B. Na, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn, Al; ammonium) und anions (z.B. nitrate, nitrite, phosphate)
  • Sum parameters (TOC, AOX, CSB, BSB)
  • Routine parameters (pH, conductivity, temperature, acid capacity, turbidity, colour)
  • Bacteriological parameters (e.g. colony counts, E.coli, coliforms, Legionella)
  • Viruses (diagnostics)
  • Mould fungi (overview analyses, diagnostics)
