Regulatory bodies have a duty to protect the public from exposure to hazardous substances, including potentially toxic heavy metals and other inorganic and organometallic species present in soil. Agilent Spectroscopy instruments are ideal for monitoring these substances—whether naturally occurring or the result of industrial or agricultural activity—because they can provide robust performance and precise quantitative analysis of trace level inorganics.
Routine Analysis of Soil Samples using ICP-MS
Organic contamination of soils occurs through chemical spills, leakage from underground storage tanks, administering chemicals and distribution of biosolids from wastewater treatment for agricultural purposes, natural disasters, and other sources. Agilent’s has solutions from sample prep to analysis that adress screening and quantification of organic contaminants in soil
