Testing for Contaminants in Environmental Samples

Environmental samples—soil, water, air, and wastes—pose unique challenges for collection, transport, and analysis. Many contaminants are present in very low concentrations, and require sensitive methods and instruments for detection. Specific applications—especially wastewater testing—require rapid, efficient testing. This series explores different aspects of environmental testing and key technologies that improve analysis.
